Improve your massage skills by developing a sense of the muscle layers in your clients body. Join us for a fun experiential anatomy class designed for the massage therapist. Have fun making muscles out of clay and layering them on a skeleton model.

We will start with the deepest muscles and work our way to the surface, taking time to palpate the muscles on each other, and to explore stretches and bodywork techniques for each muscle. This is a wonderful kinesthetic way of learning that will give you a three dimensional sense of the muscles and improve your palpation and massage skills.

For the upper body we will focus on muscles of the back, neck, face, shoulders, arm, forearm and hand. We will look at thoracic outlet syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome, and ways of working on the muscles and structures that can cause nerve impingement.

For the lower body we will focus on muscles of the abdominal wall, hip, thigh, calf and foot. We will look at sciatic pain, psoas tightness, IT band tightness, plantar fasciitis, and other problems of the lower extremity, exploring ways of working with these problems with an understanding of the relevant anatomy.

The Massage Technique Library was recently rebuilt from the ground up. The new library is much faster and more secure than the previous versions. There is an improved search function, and an enhanced comment system. Soon there will be a way to save your favorite techniques in a favorites menu. 

The library is currently free and open to the public, so please check it out while you can. No login or registration is necessary.

Soon the library will once again be for members only, with the exception of the free section. 

We are not raising the price, so membership will continue to be only $7 per month or $72 per year. There will be a way to sign up for the library on May 10th. Current library members will have access to the library without signing up again but may need to reset their password.

With the rebuilding of over 800 interlinked pages with video content, there are bound to be some errors and glitches. Please let us know of any problems or concerns by using our contact form here. Your help is greatly appreciated.

I hope you enjoy the new library, and I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
