What is Orthopedic Massage? 
Orthopedic massage is the use of advanced therapeutic assessments coupled with specific manipulation and movement of musculoskeletal tissue to reduce dysfunction and pain, and increase function and performance. This course gives you an edge in broadening and deepening your practice. These advanced skills take your ability to serve your clients to the next level.

Why is it increasingly necessary within your practice? 
Trauma, prolonged poor posture, repetitive motions, or any imbalance in the muscular, skeletal or nervous system can predispose your client to injuries, dysfunctions and pain patterns. They come to you for help. You need to be there.

Why you? 
These skills are in high demand as medical professionals continue to refer more and more patients to complementary healthcare providers like you. With specialized skills, the opportunity to serve your clients and increase your income is significant.
