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 https://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.

Illinois Massage Therapy Continuing Education Requirements

Illinois Massage Therapists Licensing and Renewal RequirementsState of Illinois Massage Therapist Requirements

Massage Therapy Licensure and Renewal in Illinois

If you’re at least 18 years of age and ready to move into your career as a massage therapist in Illinois, you must obtain a massage license. The Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation regulates the licensing of massage therapists and massage schools. 

Massage therapists must successfully complete 600 hours of an approved massage therapy program and pass the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork's (NCBTMB) examination or the Massage & Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEx) administered by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB). 

You will also be required complete a verification fingerprint processing from the Illinois Department of State Police (ISP) or an Illinois approved fingerprint vendor agency.

Massage therapists are required to complete 24 hours of Illinois approved continuing education from an approved sponsor every 2 years. 

As an Illinois Approved Continuing Education Sponsor (#9115234) Jumozy Continuing Education offers massage therapy CE courses for your Illinois license renewal.

Massage Therapy Program

The 600 hours of supervised classroom and supervised hands-on instruction massage therapy program at an Illinois approved massage school must include:

  • Human anatomy, physiology, pathology and kinesiology.
  • Massage therapy theory, technique and practice.
  • Contraindications, benefits, precautions, history, client data collection, and documentation.
  • Ethics, business and legalities of massage and professional standards.

Massage Instructor Educational Requirement and Licensure

Individual schools are required to submit the qualifications of its instructors (teachers) and a plan to ensure that they are qualified by training and experience to provide effective instruction to teach in the massage subject that they are teaching. 

The State of Illinois requires massage schools to have a faculty demonstrate competence in their areas of teaching as evidenced by a minimum of 2 years or 2000 hours of experience in their field or by appropriate degrees/certificates from approved colleges, schools, institutions and programs. 

Most schools would require that the instructor hold a valid Illinois massage license and be a member in good standing with the Illinois Board of Massage. 

Renewal Time Period

Your massage therapy license expires on December 31 of each even numbered year (every 2 years). You may renew the license during the month preceding the expiration date by paying the required fee and completing continuing education (CE). 

With many approved massage continuing education programs in Illinois, it can be difficult to choose the right massage CE courses and CE provider. 

As a leading NCBTMB approved massage CE provider Jumozy offers many courses for Illinois massage license renewal. Jumozy is an approved CE provider for licensed Illinois massage therapists. See our CE Courses

Late Renewal

It is your responsibility to notify the Illinois Massage Division of any change of address. You must renew your massage license and pay the renewal fee, even if you did not receive a renewal form from the Massage Division. 

If you are practicing on a license that has expired, which is considered unlicensed activity, you will be disciplined and can receive a fine. 

Expired License Renewal and Inactive Status

Massage therapy, while a rewarding career, can be physically demanding on the massage therapist because of many hours of hands-on work. After several years in the field, a massage therapist may want to give their hands a break, take an extended leave after the birth of a child, or participate in active military service. If you are in this situation, you may place your massage license on inactive status and you will be excused from paying renewal fees until you notify the Massage Division in writing of your intention to resume active status. 

Restoring an expired license and inactive status for less than 5 years

If you seek to renew your massage license after it has expired or has been placed on inactive status for less than 5 years you must file an application with the Massage Division, pay a fee of $50 plus payment of all lapsed renewal fees, not to exceed $470. You must also show proof of completing 24 hours of continuing education. 

Restoring an expired license and inactive status for 5 years or more

If you seek to renew your massage license after it has expired or has been placed on inactive status for 5 years or more the process is more involved. You must file an application with the Massage Division; pay a fee of $50 plus payment of all lapsed renewal fees, not to exceed $470. You must also show proof of completing 24 hours of continuing education. 

In addition, you need to submit the following: 

  • Certification of current licensure from the appropriate state board or licensing authority in another jurisdiction in which you were authorized to practice and proof of active practice. Proof of current active practice shall include a verification of employment completed by the applicant's supervisor or, if self-employed, by a peer or colleague who is familiar with your work.
  • Proof of successful completion of an exam approved by the Massage Division within 2 years prior to the restoration application.

Texas massage License Renewal-Jumozy CE Courses

 

 

 

 

 

Massage Therapy Licensure and Renewal in Texas

In Texas, a state license is required to advertise or practice massage therapy. The practice of massage therapy in Texas requires a license from Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR).

Massage therapists are licensed on the basis of education, examination, and criminal background check. Massage therapists are required to complete at least 12 hours of Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation TDLR-approved or recognized continuing education to renew a license every 2 years.

As a Texas Board of Massage Approved Continuing Education Provider (#CE1723) Jumozy Continuing Education offers massage therapy CE courses for your Texas license renewal.

Massage Instructor Licensure

Massage instructors must hold a current massage therapist license and meet the 12-hour requirement for that license in order to renew an instructor's license.

Renewal Time Period

A massage therapist license issued under the Texas chapter is valid for two (2) years.

Late Renewal

You are responsible for renewing the license before the expiration date. Even if you did not receive a renewal notice from the department, you are required to renew on time or pay late renewal fees.

Expired License Renewal

Practicing massage therapy on an expired license may result in administrative penalties and sanctions.

If your license has been expired for 90 days or less you may renew the license by paying to the department a renewal fee that is equal to 1-1/2 times the normally required renewal fee.

If your license has been expired for more than 90 days but less than 18 months you may renew the license by paying to the department a renewal fee that is equal to two times the normally required renewal fee.

If your license has been expired for at least 18 months but less than three years, on approval by the executive, may renew the license by paying to the department a renewal fee equal to two times the normally required renewal fee.

Transition from DSHS to TDLR

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) assumed all activities relating to the Massage Therapy program including licenses and renewals, customer service and enforcement on November 1, 2017.

The license you have now, issued by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), remains valid until its expiration date. When you renew, you will receive a TDLR license.

Texas massage therapists should note that the rules have changed. TDLR adopted rules for all of the transferred programs. Most of the newly adopted rules are very similar, but some changes have been made. The TDLR health profession rules became effective on November 1, 2017.

 With more courses on the way.

 Acceptable Course Curriculum

Acceptable continuing education includes attendance and completion of courses that are directly related to the theory or clinical application of theory pertaining to the following:

  • Practice of massage therapy
  • The manipulation of soft tissue
  • Massage therapy laws and rules
  • Business practices
  • Professional ethics
  • Anatomy
  • Physiology
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Kinesiology
  • Pathology
  • Health and hygiene

 Bodywork Classes

Most massage and bodywork modalities are acceptable, provided the sponsor (person/company presenting the class/course) is acceptable. Unacceptable modalities would include activities which are not part of providing a massage (e.g. ear candling) or that require another license (e.g. chiropractic adjustments).

Energy Work Classes

Most energy work classes are acceptable, provided the sponsor is acceptable. They must be designed to enhance the provision of massage, and they may not involve any false or misleading health claims (e.g. claiming to cure or treat diseases).

Exercise or Movement Classes

Yoga, martial arts, and exercise classes are not acceptable unless they are specifically designed as self-care for massage therapists.

First Aid or CPR

Courses in first aid and/or CPR will be accepted if the course is taught or presented by a certified First Aid Instructor or certified CPR instructor who was certified by the American Heart Association, American Red Cross or National Safety Council. Courses cannot exceed six hours total each renewal period.

Online or Correspondence Courses

Continuing education that otherwise meets the standards, but is offered or presented online or by correspondence is acceptable only if the subject matter is not massage therapy techniques or manipulation of soft tissue. (Jumozy is a Texas Board of Massage Approved Continuing Education Provider #CE1723.)

Pre-Approval of Coursework

The TDLR does not pre-approve CE programs. Please consult the Acceptable Course Curriculum section of this page (above) to determine whether or not the program is acceptable. If the sponsor, content, and certificate are acceptable, then you may use that program as continuing education for the purpose of license renewal.

All licensed massage therapy schools are also approved to provide continuing education, and may issue either continuing education certificates, or transcripts showing advanced course work (as described in the rules, §117.60. Massage School Advanced Course Work).

Reporting Completed Courses

TDLR uses an audit system for continuing education reporting. Each licensed massage therapist is responsible for maintaining a record of his or her continuing education experiences. The certificates, diplomas, or other documentation verifying continuing education hours should not be forwarded to TDLR at the time of renewal unless the licensee has been selected for audit.

TDLR will select for audit a random sample of licensed massage therapists for each renewal month. If selected for an audit, then you will be notified at the time of your renewal. You will be required to submit copies of certificates, transcripts or other documentation to verify attendance, participation and completion of continuing education requirements. If selected for audit, all documentation must be provided at the time of renewal before the license will be renewed.

The licensee is responsible for maintaining a record of continuing education experiences or certificates. If you are selected for audit, then you will be notified and records will be required to be submitted to TDLR.

Official transcripts do not have to be in a sealed envelope from the school. Transcripts may be submitted by mail to the following address:
