Connective Tissue Massage & Therapeutic Stretching for the Shoulders

Come learn connective tissue massage for the shoulders

In this class you will learn techniques to increase circulation in the connective tissues surrounding the shoulder girdle, helping clients to recover more quickly from injuries. You will learn massage techniques in side-lying, prone and supine, with focus on points of muscle attachments that usually get injured. You will learn to palpate the tendons of the rotator cuff, assess client’s shoulder flexibility and learn numerous stretching techniques for muscles of the shoulder girdle.

This class is designed to complement the Shoulder Injuries workshop that is part of the orthopedic massage certification, but the Shoulder Injuries workshop is not a pre-requisite for this class. This is a stand-alone massage workshop.
