Skills Update

At the weekend, I attended a two-day course in Advanced Massage Techniques with TEACH (Training & Education in Alternative & Complementary Health) Therapy in Wales. The course was run by Joanne Perkins who is a registered Osteopath.

The course taught me how to assess whether a client has any postural problems such as scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis or pelvic imbalances; how to assess the spine for flexibility, tenderness, and mobility; exercises and stretches to help with postural problems and back pain; deep tissue massage techniques; and articulation techniques.

The course covered various muscular-skeletal conditions such as sciatica, arthritis, frozen shoulder, whiplash, slipped disks, etc and how to treat them with massage techniques, exercises, and stretches.

It was very informative and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can’t wait to go on the follow up course next year.

Information about courses run by TEACH therapy can be found on their website.
