Ralph Stephens has released the newest addition to his Medical Massage Series, a 2 DVD, 2+ Hour training program for massage therapists to be able to work on the most under-treated area of the body, the abdominal wall.
Demonstrated, are techniques and information to help therapists effectively and efficiently examine and treat this region. This professionally produced program includes myofascial, neuromuscular, and massage techniques to provide both pain relief and postural correction, and is mostly comprised of relaxation and clinical hands-on technique demonstrations.
The clinical chapters show how to examine and manipulate each muscle of the abdominal wall for pain relief, postural correction, and improved flexibility. Superficial and deep muscles, including iliopsoas & diaphragm are addressed. The relaxation chapter demonstrates how to easily and effectively relax the abdominal muscles in just a few minutes as part of your relaxation massage.
The abdominal region literally holds key to unlocking stubborn back, shoulder and neck pain. Every movement of the torso passes through the abdominal wall muscles and every postural distortion is ‘locked in’ by them. If you need help solving tough cases, this DVD program may hold the answers you seek.
Be the first in your area to provide this new level of therapeutic effectiveness.
