The Science and Art of massage is the foundation of all massage courses in this program, offered in two parts. Part II continues the history, theory, and practice of massage therapy learned in Part I. Students learn a 60 minute relaxation/evaluative massage routine using fundamental strokes such as, but not limited to, Swedish (petrissage, effleruage, tapotement, vibration, friction and touch without movement), manual lymphatic drainage, and circulation enhancement. Different methods will be presented in each class and are primarily hands-on. Seated, side-lying, pregnancy, infant, geriatric, sports massage and massage adaptations for special populations are covered. By the end of this course, students will perform a 60 minute relaxation massage routine with modifications to become shorter or longer based on the needs of the client, perform side-lying massage for pregnancy, sports massage and others, and explore massage modalities that complement relaxation massage (aromatherapy, hot and cold stone, etc.). Prerequisite: Science and Art of Massage Part I.
A list of required textbooks and materials will be provided by the instructor.
