The Ultimate Face, Scalp, Neck & Shoulder Massage (2.5 CE Hours) M44C


Beauty is more than skin-deep. In this CE course, Meade Steadman, LMT, goes deeper into the muscles to relieve tension, improve posture, and restore natural beauty from the inside out. Seeking that "softening effect", Meade demonstrates massage techniques — basic and advanced — on the head and shoulders, following the body's musculature, skeletal structure, and the vascular system. Throughout the course, Meade refers to anatomy charts to discuss the underlying foundation of massage work. In addition to the shoulder muscle massage, neck muscle massage and face and scalp massage demonstrations, he also shares some self-massage exercises for clients to maintain the benefits of their massage therapy session...until the next one.

Meade Steadman is a licensed massage therapist and instructor. He taught at the Myotherapy College of Utah and the Myotherapy Institute of Massage. In the classroom, he has taught Swedish, Sports, Acutherapy, Tai Chi, Hydrotherapy, Reflexology, Infant Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Contraindications, Chair Massage, Geriatric Massage, Specialized Spa Techniques, and Therapeutic Principles. He is also the featured expert in many award-winning instructional videos on various massage modalities. For 26 years he owned and managed Tranquil Touch™ LLC in Salt Lake City, UT. He has been a guest lecturer at the University of Utah, and has published in A Massage Therapist’s Guide to Pathology (4th Edition) and Massage and BodyWork Magazine.
