Description:

This course continues the processes begun in the preceding massage theory and practice courses. The student is encouraged to apply critical thinking skills to deduce the best possible care of the patient.

Trigger point therapy and joint play as additional modalities of treatment are discussed, demonstrated and practised. Concurrent laboratory practice reinforces theory base and expands the student's skill level.
