Course Description

This class will prepare the student to address client complaints about pain with educated responses including but not limited to muscle operation in layman’s terms, how the muscles are connected through the fascial network and body mechanics for their jobs.

This class addresses the issue of how to explain to clients that the way they are using their body is what is contributing to the pain they come to you for relief from.  Since you know how to relieve the pain, now you can explain how the client can improve their work environment ergonomically between appointments to also help ease the pain.  Educating clients may mean less appointments, however by educating them on this you can also educate them on how regular massage can combat the damage of the repetitive movements they still make.  AND happy clients are more likely to refer.

Americans are more sedentary in their lifestyles and OSHA reports that musculoskeletal disorders are one of the “leading causes of lost workday injury and illness”.  Your clients need to be informed of what is appropriate in the use of their bodies.  Your clients tell others if you don’t help them, but educating them is helping them.

This class helps you to keep clients by educating them.  Students should wear comfortable clothing and bring standard table linens.
