Muscle Revision for Therapists
You know how to give a good relaxing massage. You may even be using deep tissue techniques. But are you as effective as you could be? Have you got a clear idea of what’s going on below the surface of your client’s skin or understand what you are feeling through your hands or maybe even your elbows? Why not have some fun while improving your knowledge, developing your palpatory skills and moving closer towards being able to give a truly ‘intuitive’ massage. Get inspired to take your massage practice to the next level.
• Palpate the main muscles & bones of the front & back of the body
• Draw all these muscles & bones on each other
• Look up the muscles in your Anatomy & Physiology (A&P) books
• Get a clearer 3D visual and palpatory understanding of the various structures of the human anatomy, where they are, what they do.
This is an ideal opportunity to review and revise the ‘nuts and bolts’ of what you work with every day. Develop from simply being ‘a mechanic who polishes the bonnet’ to one that actually ‘works on the engine’ too!
The day will be mostly practical and you will be drawing on each other with face crayons, so please wear suitable clothing such as loose trousers and short or no sleeve tops (preferably not white to avoid stains).
Suitable for qualified therapists with a basic knowledge of A&P.
I loved the muscle revision day and found it really useful. It was an approach to muscle learning I have not done in the past. The class size was just right and you are a good teacher. You made it enjoyable and relaxed but still got the job done. I will definitely look out for more courses you run. MM
As fabulous as ever! Tatina is so knowledgeable and passionate about her work and this is infectious. Inspiring! KK
I’m very unpractised and need time to study and ingest but I feel inspired to do this! VM
Hi Tatina, thank you for organising the muscle revision workshop. It was hugely helpful. It was a lot to take in in one day but that is more to do with my lack of studying beforehand. VKD
The Muscle Revision workshop really helped. Particularly the legs and those wrap round quads. I wish I’d done it earlier. It’s such an effective way to learn. LPD
Very enjoyable day, nice small group. I feel things are starting to make sense now! SN
I am well up for doing your muscle revision workshop. Feedback from past students has been great and it really builds confidence. EC
I just wanted to say thanks for a really useful day. A really novel approach to helping me remember muscles rather than just reading about them! NM
