Intro to Arthrossage

Intro to Arthrossage

According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one in five adult Americans suffers from arthritis. It is, in fact, the most common type of disability. There are specific manual therapies that are known to be able to address pain and stiffness and yet very few massage therapists have the skill and credentials to treat it.

Arthrossage is different from the more traditional Swedish or Deep Tissue massage. This is a clothing-on treatment that focuses on increasing flexibility, lucricating joints and lengthening muscles. This type of treatment can be used in conjuction with a sports massage and may even be considered a helpful tool for arthritis prevention. As a massage professional, this is a great service to provide and a great treatment for your clients to receive.

In this two day continuing education course you will learn about various forms of rheumatic disease and medical massage procedures for arthritis intervention and treatment. During this class, the massage professional will:

 

  • Learn to differentiate between various forms of rheumatic disease including Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Fibromyalgia and Gout. Students will be introduced to the autoimmune disease process.
     

  • Discuss symptoms, theories of causes, contraindications for touch therapies, treatment protocols, rational diet considerations and exercise movement options.
     

  • Learn to take an appropriate Intake/History outline.
     

  • Gain an understanding and be able to appropriately apply myofascial release techniques, trigger point work and other manual therapies.
     

  • View various hands-on demonstrations of manual medical massage protocols that are appropriate for clients/patients with arthritis and other rheumatic conditions. You will receive specific instruction for body mechanics and hand placements.  Students will then engage in a hands-on exchange with other students where they will have the opportunity to give and receive treatments, ask questions and provide feedback.
     

  • Students will have the opportunity to review and clarify items covered during a Question and Answer Session.
     

  • By the end of this course, the massage practitioner will be adept at speaking about and working with arthritic conditions and be able to perform a full-body  arthossage massage on a client/patient with arthritis and other rheumatic conditions. 

 

Note: This class is an adjunct to, but NOT required as part of the Medical Massage Practitioner Certification Program.

All of our classes have minimum and maximum enrollments that can be accepted. If a class is getting close to being full, we may close online enrollment. If a class is closed online, you may still call us at #800-201-2247 to see if there are any additional spaces or to go on a waiting list.

STAYING OVERNIGHT?

The best option would be to stay right at the hotel where the class is taught, so we try to set up room blocks for students at lower than listed prices. This is not always available however. When calling, ask the front desk about this. If they are not aware, try the sales office. NOTE: Before doing this, check out discount websites such as hotels.com, trivago.com or tripadvisor.com. Sometimes there are nearby hotels, some even within walking distance, that offer better rates.
