Many massage therapists would like to include effective stretches in their table sessions but feel they don’t have the training or expertise to perform the stretches correctly, or struggle with the best way to incorporate them into a massage. Acquire the skills to include effective stretching in your sessions by
attending this seminar.
Facilitated Stretching is a safe, simple, effective stretching technique that can be used with a wide variety of clients to regain or improve flexibility. This course is designed to teach a baker’s dozen of valuable stretches from the facilitated stretching repertoire that can be easily incorporated into a table massage session. These stretches, combined with soft tissue work, will enable you to obtain greater overall success in client treatment sessions.
Additionally, a program of self-stretching using these techniques can be invaluable for clients in their home stretching programs.
