Deep Tissue Massage Course: Inner muscle approach for Pain Relief and Posture Correction

Our Deep Tissue Massage Course focuses, like our two other main courses, on pain relief and posture correction. This particular course emphasizes movement improvement. Hiro will demonstrate and explain tools and techniques for dynamic posture correction which are particularly adapted to athletes, dancers, and yoga practitioners.

In this comprehensive program, students will learn techniques of palpation to effectively target deep layers of tense muscle tissue. Muscle tensions not only cause pain during movement, but also lead to compensatory movements, resulting in poor posture.

You will learn how to release pain and improve your clients' range of motion, ultimately contributing to better posture and overall performance. By the end of this massage training course, students will have gained key deep tissue massage techniques to significantly enhance their practice and provide lasting benefits for their clients.

Pain Relief - Target the Deep Layer of Muscle

The "Deep Tissue" approach targets the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues and introduces highly effective techniques for pain relief and posture correction.

In the class, we emphasize dedicated palpation techniques to locate, access, and treat the deep layers of the muscles.

Additionally, this course presents important principles of functional anatomy to better understand how to release tension in related muscles, and improve your clients' joint range of motion.

Posture Correction - Apply deep tissue massage to realign posture

A posture assessment is a valuable tool for massage therapists to understand the body's movement patterns and identify areas of tension, imbalance, or dysfunction. 

In RSM Massage Training, we teach our students effective postural assessment methods, and how to apply deep tissue massage for the goal of realigning unbalanced posture.

Advanced Pain Relief - Combination with Trigger Point Therapy

RSM combines deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy for pain relief and posture corrections.
You can explore the topic further in one of our other primary courses: Trigger Point Therapy, but you will also see in this workshop how to combine the 2 two approaches.

If Deep Tissue Massage targets deeper layers of muscle tissue to release chronic tension and improve posture, Trigger Point Therapy applies pressure to specific points in the body to promote healing. In combination, these 2 techniques deliver substantial results.

Improved Range of Motion - Combining Myofascial Release with Assisted Stretching

Another rich combination of deep tissue massages are Myofascial Release and Assisted Stretching. These techniques work together to release tension, improve mobility, and restore balance in the body.

Deep tissue massage targets deep layers of muscle tissue to break up adhesions and release chronic tension. Myofascial release applies gentle pressure to connective tissue to release tension and restore balance.

Assisted stretching improves flexibility, reduces muscle tension, and improves posture.

By creating customized treatment plans based on the client's needs, you can address a range of issues from chronic pain to postural imbalances.

Learn how to define proper clients' massage positions

Our massage training emphasizes the importance of proper client positioning to maximize therapy benefits.

By learning effective positions, you can ensure client comfort and relaxation, allowing for deeper and more effective massage work. 

The proper positioning of the head, neck, spine, and limbs will allow you to access deeper layers of muscle. By understanding the intricate relationship between body positioning and deep tissue massage, you will be better equipped to tailor your approach to each client.
