Remedial + Therapeutic Stretching

Many Professional Massage Therapists are woefully lacking (i) in personal flexibility, and (ii) an understanding of the vital importance of remedial stretching as an adjunct to Massage Treatment. This course is designed to bring you up to speed in both of these areas. This Course incorporates many of the key elements of the Stretching Workshops run by Kit Laughlin (Australia) for Posture & Flexibility, and for the Treatment of Neck and Back Pain.

All participants are guaranteed to complete this Course with significantly increased flexibility.

Course content includes:

  • Benefits of flexibility
  • Review of all stretching approaches (including active, passive, partner assisted, PNF/MER, reciprocal inhibition)
  • Use of stretching as an essential adjunct to Massage Treatment (partner assisted)
  • Use of stretching as self treatment
  • Full sequence of contract/relax stretches for treatment of most musculo-skeletal pain and dysfunction patterns in the body.

This is a practically based Course that forms part of the WSMT'S Diploma in Therapeutic Treatment Massage qualification, and will be required for our Diploma in Kinesiology.

Eligibility: This Course is designed for students who have completed the minimum of our Certificate in Therapeutic Massage; other bodywork students may apply.
