Relaxing MassageMassage therapists often become experts in several massage modalities, all of which require unique techniques. These different modalities allow the massage therapists to attract more clients, customize therapy to clients' needs, and keep their day-to-day practice interesting.

Versatility also makes a therapist more attractive to employers. An increasing number of massage clinics, spas, and health care environments are looking for massage therapists. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report and U.S. News and World Report, massage therapist was ranked #53 in "100 Best Jobs" and #21 in "Best Healthcare Jobs". Projected employment growth between 2010 and 2020 is 20.1 percent.

So, it pays to diversify.

There are about 80 massage therapy styles to choose among, offering relaxation, relief, or healing. According to an American Massage Therapy Association survey, massage therapists offer an average of seven modalities.

Here are some of the more popular modalities.

Swedish Massage

The most common type of massage, involving effleurage, petrissage, friction, and tapotement on the topmost layers of muscles. Swedish massage relieves muscle tension and is relaxing and energizing. Aesthetic VideoSource offers a beautifully filmed, instructional DVD on this modality: Essentials of Swedish Massage. This award-winning DVD features Meade Steadman, a Jumozy instructor.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage techniques apply pressure to deeper layers of muscle, tendons, and other tissues, to address chronically tense and contracted areas. The techniques are designed to release muscle and adhesions, increase range of motion, reset muscle memory, and reduce primary and secondary distortions. Aesthetic VideoSource has three comprehensive, instructional DVDs on this modality, for Deep Tissue Massage: Extremities, Pelvic Girdle, and Shoulder Girdle, all featuring Meade Steadman.

Chair Massage

The portability of chair massage accounts for its popularity among therapists as well as clients who seek it out at malls or conferences for a moment's reprieve. Chair massage allows practitioners to reach people beyond the spa or simply to avoid fixed overhead costs. Therapists can also incorporate whatever modality they prefer. Jumozy offers a comprehensive course on this modality, Full Body Chair Massage, which includes sections on different chairs, tools and setup, dealing with business attire, and marketing.

Thai Massage

Thai massage involves positioning the body into different therapeutic postures, stretching, compressing muscles, mobilizing joints, and acupressure. It addresses balance and structural corrections. Thai massage is a healing science that has been practiced thousands of years. The top recognized master of this modality outside of Thailand is Dr. Anthony James, CMT, ND, MDAM. His professional development and certification programs have set the standards in the U.S. He is also the instructor in the four-part The Ultimate Thai Massage Video instructional DVD series for the mat and table, produced by Aesthetic VideoSource.

Stone Massage

With stone massage, smooth stones are incorporated into a massage or placed on the body to provide the benefits of their inherent healing properties, as well as to apply heat or cold. Incorporating stones as massage tools is also easier on the therapist. Stones minimize injury to the hands, wrists, and elbows, and make the work less exhausting. Stone massage is also good for the bottom line and a way to personalize a massage and to differentiate a therapist's offerings. Jumozy offers Full Body Stone Massage, a comprehensive course that covers all aspects of this modality.

Reflexology

Reflexology applies pressure to reflexes on the hands or feet that are connected to various parts of the body. This pressure stimulates those body parts, as well as improves lymphatic drainage and circulation in the hands/feet, relaxing muscles and stimulating nerve connections. Jumozy offers two comprehensive reflexology courses, Comprehensive Reflexology for the Foot and Comprehensive Reflexology for the Hand as well as seven shorter reflexology courses focused on specific health complaints.

Pregnancy Massage,

Expectant moms experience unique physical and emotional changes that occur as a result of increased weight, shifting posture, and adjusting hormone levels. The soothing essence of massage can allow pregnant moms to unwind during this time.  It can also alleviate the resulting discomfort and other pregnancy-related symptoms. In Aesthetic VideoSource's Nurturing Pregnancy Massage Techniques I and Nurturing Pregnancy Massage Techniques II,  Meade Steadman demonstrates step-by-step how to provide therapeutic massage techniques that focus on the special needs of the mother to be as she goes through the different trimesters.

To perform effective myofascial release treatments for your clients, many different parts of the hands and arms can be used. You can learn the techniques to make your treatments more effective.

Here is a list of 7 parts of your body you can use as tools to perform myofascial release:

  1. Finger tips
  2. Finger pads
  3. Metacarpal- phalangeal joints
  4. Palm
  5. Pisiform
  6. Ulna
  7. Olecranon process

While there are other tools out there, your hands and arms provide you with the sensitivity required to do this work, and direct contact provides you with a lot of important information.

Myofascial Release Training Massage CE Of course, the first thing you think about with massage is the hands. Let's start with the fingers, or phalanges. They are very articulate and move readily. There are three joints in the finger. Fingers can easily manipulate tissue and perform detailed work. We can use our finger tips like chisels to address minute areas of tissue. But with the articulation lies a compromise in strength. You will want to remember safety in numbers. Combining fingers results in combined strength. You can also combine both hands, which additionally allows you to cover more area.

Now, let's talk about the finger pads. They are very sensitive and provide a lot of information. They also have a sense of grip. By very lightly engaging the fingertips, you can use them to roll, lift, and separate the tissue from neighboring muscle tissue and away from the bone.

If you take your hands and press them together, you'll notice there is a blunt area formed by the metacarpal-phalangeal joints, or knuckles. You can use those joints in two capacities. From the palmar surface, you can press and stretch right through the body. From the dorsal surface, from making a soft fist, you can push the four prominent knuckles into the body, and it's like using a rake but in reverse. As you work through the tissue, you also get more depth and the surface of the trailing fingers acts like the wake of a boat.

Massage Training - Learn Myofascial Release Massage Techniques and Get Your Massage CEs at http://www.jumozy.comWorking up into the palm, you'll notice that if you squeeze the palm together, there is a little valley and two mounds of tissue.  These mounds of tissue are called the thenar eminence, "thenar" meaning "thumb", and the hypothenar eminence, adjacent to the pinky. Right below those are the nine carpal bones, the bones forming the wrist. If you pull your hand back, you have a firm padded area, provided by the palmar eminences, with the solidity of the bone, provided by the carpals, underneath.  This padded area is useful for kneading the tissue. This palmar kneading technique is great for warming up and lifting the tissue from the body.

Now follow the hypothenar eminence to where the wrist joins the ulna. You will find a distinct bony projection. This is the pisiform. Similar to utilizing the knuckles, you can achieve a bit more depth with the pisiform.  To avoid injuring your wrist, you should refrain from using it directly. But, you can use it side to side or by rotating to delve into the tissue.

Those are the hands. Now let's move to the elbow. Just above the crease of the elbow, there's a flat surface on the ulna. If you place that area in your palm and rotate it, you'll notice you can get compression by making small movements.

On the medial side of the elbow, there's a large protuberance called the olecranon process that can be used following the same principle. The olecronon is useful for working with thick muscle tissue. Again, if you place the olecranon in your palm and rotate it, you'll get a sense of how it can be a useful tool. Also, keeping the olecranon in your palm, straighten the arm and bring it up slowly to your shoulder.  Notice how changing the angle of flexion affects the depth into the tissue. When using this joint, decreasing the angle between the arm and forearm increases the depth.

So these are your tools. To briefly review, we have the finger tips, finger pads, metacarpal phalangeal joints from the palmar as well as dorsal side, the palm, the pisiform at the wrist joint, the flat area of the ulna, and the olecranon process on the elbow. These will be the main tools for applying myofascial release techniques.

Myofascial Release Massage Training - Continuing Education CE Course  - Advanced Massage Therapy TechniquesWhen a client asks for deep tissue work or talks about chronic tension and pain, myofascial release can benefit them.

Myofascial release is a form of deep tissue massage calms the body while promoting healthy circulation and also creates change in the physical structure of the muscle and fascia.

You will need 1.5 hours to provide a full body session for your clients.

If you would like to learn Myofascial Techniques so that you can incorporate them into your massage therapy sessions you have several options:

All of these massage training resources can teach you how to address specific client complaints and demonstrate step-by-step techniques for the entire body.

Myofascial release remains the foundation of John Hoffmann's work in chiropractic offices, as well as massage spas and on-sitecorporate massage because of its effectiveness in alleviating pain and in creating healthy changes in the soft tissues of the body.

John Hoffmann, LMT is the featured expert in the Myofascial Release Techniques training video, award-winning Craniosacral Therapy Techniques training videoOnline Craniosacral Therapy CE Course and Online Myofascial Release CE course.

Hoffmann is a Licensed Massage Therapist and Massage Therapy Instructor and has been practicing in the Los Angeles area for over 15 years. His study of the body began with dance training. Developing a strong, intuitive, highly kinetic understanding of how the body works made the transition from dancer to body worker a natural, logical progression. He completed his massage therapy studies at the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing in California and is now the featured expert in online training videos and online massage CE courses.

Laser hair removal has become a popular alternative to waxing, shaving, and depilatory creams in recent years. For the right patients, laser hair removal can provide a 70 to 90 percent reduction in unwanted hair. This accounts for the fact that laser hair removal is one of the top five non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the United States for both men and women. In fact, millions of these procedures are performed annually. Dermatologists and medical spas require proper training to offer the procedure safely.

Craniosacral therapy is based on concepts that date back thousands of years and are buttressed by 20th century medical research.

An American osteopathic physician named William Sutherland is credited with being the father of what is known as craniosacral therapy. While he is credited with being the founder of this work, some of the concepts predate him by thousands of years.

Earlier Applications and Understandings

There is a Chinese text from four thousand years ago which makes reference to the art of “listening” and “calming” the heart through touching the body very lightly. Cranial manipulation is also thought to have been practiced by the ancient Egyptians and members of the Paracus culture in Peru around 2000 BC- 200 AD. This concept of listening to the body acknowledged that the vitality of the body is connected to the neural network.

More recently in the Middle Ages, European practitioners known as “bone setters” utilized light manipulations of bony structures to basically reset fractures and dislocations and to even treat headaches.

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_cshistory1.png

The studies of 18th century, European philosopher and scientist, Emmanuel Swedenborg, noted the regular cycle of expansion and contraction of the brain.

Dr. William Sutherland

While the concepts at the foundation of craniosacral therapy have existed through history, Dr. Sutherland created a system of research that gave us the ideas and observations that demonstrated a physiological basis. His study into the work of the cranial bones and the craniosacral system started in the early 1900s.

Map of the United States

Most individual state regulatory boards require continuing education for massage therapists to renew licensing. CE requirements vary by state.

Our massage therapy courses are valid in most states, either as an NCBTMB Approved Provider or as approved by the state board. You can check the licensing requirements for your state here, but always double check with your state regulatory board for information (in case there have been any changes) and city and county authorities as to local regulations. You are responsible for knowing the laws that apply to you.

The list of states requiring is growing. As of July 1, 2013, new Idaho requirements for licensing and continuing education go into effect.

For the few “hold outs,” the local legislatures periodically consider regulation. For example, in February, the Kansas legislature debated House Bill 2186 that would have set minimum training requirements and mandated licensing. However, it appears that bill did not pass.

Increasingly, more states and Canadian provinces are requiring massage therapists to take a minimum number of continuing education (CE) hours to maintain licensure. Professional organizations, such as the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) and American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), often require CE’s to maintain membership standing and organizational endorsement.

On one level, these requirements may seem yet another item on the ever-growing “to do” list: more hoops to jump, when you’re already busy with your practice and personal life. Are CE requirements just another bureaucratic layer, complicating your life?  Or is continuing education important?

According to the 2012 data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau, there is a correlation with education to income. The more education you have, the more money you’re likely to make. That’s good motivation right there.

But I already graduated from a massage training program, you say. True, but education doesn’t stop there.  There are good reasons why.

Continuing education allows you to:

  • Learn new modalities and techniques
  • Expand your menu of service offerings
  • Attract more clients and grow your business
  • Grow your career opportunities
  • Be more valuable to employers
  • Stand out from the competition
  • Customize your techniques to meet a client’s needs
  • Stay current with the latest developments in massage therapy
  • Fill in gaps in basic massage therapy training
  • Provide clients with the best possible experience
  • Increase your income
  • Maintain licensure

Requirements vary for different state/province accrediting agencies and professional organizations. Requirements usually allow for learning new modalities and techniques. They may also cover business practices (such as record keeping and business management) for starting and maintain your practice, ethics and CPR, to aromatherapy, if incorporated into your practice.
