Techniques are similar in form to those used in both therapeutic and the sports fields. Demonstration and learning will cover those areas of the body palpated for treatment such as the bony prominences and joints of the skeleton. All origins, insertions and bellies of 26 muscles are discussed and located for study. Advanced massage techniques such as palpation of soft and hard tissue, trigger point therapy, Range of Motion (ROM) as well as muscle energy techniques, postural analysis and muscle testing will be demonstrated practically.
