What will you learn in this Massage Therapist Course

Module 5

In this module, you will learn all about Full Body Massage. A full-body massage indicates that the therapist will massage your whole body during a therapeutic massage lasting at least 50 minutes. That’s the amount of time needed to massage all the major areas of your body – back, shoulders, legs, feet, arms, hands and neck. Men get a nice pectoral massage, but women have to go to Europe for that.

Module 6

In this module, you will learn all about Swedish Massage. Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Module 7

This module will teach you about Sports Massage. Sports massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. Soft tissue is connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and ensheathes the other soft tissues). Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused by repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.

Module 8

This module will teach you about LomiLomi Massage. Lomilomi is the word used today to mean “massage therapist” or “Hawaiian massage.” In the Hawaiian language, the word used traditionally, called Lomi, means “to knead, to rub, or soothe; to work in and out, like the paws of a contented cat.

This treatment is also responsible for dealing with surface muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues. This massage therapy is similar to acupressure. The majority of the methods used in Trigger Point Therapy are also used in acupressure.

Module 11

This module will teach you about Thai Massage. This message was originally created in India, but the techniques were influenced by the people of Thailand. It was known as a part of Thai medicine. Monks had even got a taste of this message back in the day. Thai massage is different than the regular massages. In fact, it is more invigorating and severe than other massage forms. It is also known as Thai yoga massage. The therapist uses different parts of their body to incorporate stretches that are similar to yoga. Some people have even compared Thai massage to yoga. With this massage treatment, mobilization of the joints, compression of muscles and acupressure are also used.

Module 12

This module will teach you about Reflexology. This type of massage has to do with the feet. There are certain areas on the feet and hands that connect with certain parts of the body. For instance, with the ball of the foot, there is a connection with the heart and the chest. With the heel of the foot, there is a connection with the lower back and intestinal area. When a massage therapist uses this massage treatment, they apply pressure to the reflex areas. This works to bring health to those body parts and other organs. When pressure is applied, energy will travel through a pathway.

Module 14

Before the actual opening of your massage therapy business, you must learn how to market it effectively in order to get clients. In order to be and remain competitive, you have to stand out. To do that, you have to offer multiple services. Some of the clientele may not want regular massage therapy. They may want something like a trigger point massage. It’s important to diversify and set yourself apart from other massage therapists.

Module 15

In this module, you will learn all about Complimentary Massages. aIt’s not going to matter how much education you’ve had. If you don’t have the skills and the expertise behind you, then you can forget about attracting clients. Creating brochures is really for the client’s benefit.
