Have you wanted to take your massage game to the next level? Perhaps you have never worked with athletes before. Or you have but want to deep dive into Mechanics and Processes behind sports massage at an elite level. You want to feel empowered when an elite or competitive athlete, enters your clinic.
Say a young soccer player named Rachel comes into your practice. She has a championship game in two weeks, and has had general massage before, but her left hip flexor is hurting. What do you do? How would you help Rachel?
You would need to know:
Has she seen a doctor or is working with an ATC
Where is she at in her season
What does her body alignment look like
What type of massage techniques has she had before
