Therapeutic Massage Program Steps

The Therapeutic Massage program is structured to enable students to acquire both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in various areas, including:

1. Safety Techniques

The instructor covers diseases (HIV/AIDS), sanitation of tools and work surfaces, and proper handling of instruments. This training reduces the risk of injuries and illnesses post-massage sessions, helping to build a good reputation and ensuring the safety of both the practitioner and their clients.

2. Ethical Practice and Licensing Agreements

Teachers discuss the legal regulation of massage therapy, including professional ethics, and the history of massage therapy. Understanding these requirements helps students set and achieve goals during their training, ensuring they are fully prepared for their licensing exams by the end of the program.

3. Anatomy and Physiology

The instructor explains the interrelation between human anatomy and physiology and massage therapy. This includes how various techniques affect muscle groups and bodily processes, and how diseases impact the perception of massage. A massage therapist knowledgeable in anatomy and physiology can select the most effective massage techniques, leading to more tangible results.

4. Study of Massage Techniques in Theory and Practice

Students learn the basics of bodywork, the effects of massage therapy on skin, circulation, muscle groups, and practice various massage techniques, delving into therapeutic exercises. They master at least 50 procedures. After this practical experience, students can confidently use massage techniques and work in a modern beauty salon without intimidation.

5. Related Techniques

Students explore hydrotherapy, specialized and integrative massage (combining Spanish, Thai, Ayurvedic, osteopathic techniques), myofascial release (a technique that relieves movement restrictions and restores natural muscle and ligament positions), and Eastern massage techniques. The curriculum also includes first aid training – cardiopulmonary resuscitation, sports massage, and lymphatic drainage massage.

6. Business Management

Students learn how to create effective advertising, attract new clients, manage documentation, and hire staff. They are encouraged to develop a career plan for the next few years. Business lessons ensure that the training is practical and applicable. After completing the massage training, students can immediately start working and outline their development plan.
