Orthopedic Massage Techniques and Assessment designed by our faculty and inspired by the work of  Whitney Lowe will give you the skills to resolve 50 different conditions.  Improve your understanding and competence in treating musculoskeletal problems. Assessment, even basic evaluation, is increasingly considered to be a critical tool in understanding a client’s problem, and then finding the most effective treatment forthat condition.

Learn how soft-tissues function in health and injury, what roles tissue play in the body, and the primary ways in which soft-tissues are damaged. Techniques include range-of-motion, manual resistive, and special testing, as well as how to utilize problem-solving with deep massage, myofascial release, trigger points, deep tissue work and active release techniques.
