Using Traditional Chinese Medicine Modalities to Improve your Massage Practice – January 14, 2023

Gain a deeper understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory and modalities, and how to apply these concepts to your massage practice.  TCM Modalities that will be covered and practiced in depth include Cupping, Gua Sha (tool assisted manual therapy), Hot and Cold therapies, use of Liniments, and Electric Muscle Stimulation. Kinesio taping usage will also be included.  There will be an overview on acupuncture meridians and points, and how they can be used to complement your massage treatments. Focus will be on how the meridians work, where they are located on the body, and how to use them to affect different body areas.  This is a great way to expand your knowledge with a new way to look at human anatomy and give you different tools to problem-solve for your clients.    Contact: 541-383-2122 or Info@sageschoolofmassage.com
