Newton's third law
Reduce muscular tension....reduce pain.
Often times the truth.
Get ready to explore the workings of the Elbow....
The target audience for the 2-day (13 contact hr) class are therapists seeking effective massage techniques to further enhance their knowledge and confidence for addressing pain and dysfunction in Elbows. Consider the important role muscles play in situations throughout the body... that according to our own CDC, more visits to physicians’ offices were made for musculoskeletal conditions than for any other reason.
Expected outcomes for participants include:
Techniques and protocols will be presented that include:
These classes include both a regional and a specific in-depth precision focus on the appropriate anatomy. We begin with each student building a clay model of the Elbow joint and supporting tissue. As each muscle, tendon and ligament is assembled and attached, techniques to stretch, correct and manipulate that specific muscle will be presented, practiced, and reviewed.
Muscles and membranes to be studied will include: Interosseous Membrane, Triceps Brachii, Anconeus, Supinator, Brachialis, Flexor Digitorum Superficialis, Flexor Carpi Ulnaris, Palmaris Longus, Flexor Carpi Radialis, Pronator Teres, and more!!!
There will be lots of 'hands on' practice.

How might that affect the overall visual experience of watching that performance?
Through recognizing, respecting and responding to that functional organization, therapists can often reduce tension and pain rather quickly. Often times it is a simple matter of putting the tissue back where it belongs....
The learning process is intended to aid you in...
