Gain Skills to Treat the Lower Body
From knee pain and ankle sprains to foot problems and lower back issues, there are all kinds of things that can go wrong with a client’s lower body. If you are a massage therapist who wants to help people who are having problems in this area, it is important to get the best possible skills. This is why so many massage therapists and other hands-on health care professionals turn to Erik Dalton and his top-of- the-line training. Dalton teaches people how to apply techniques that range from deep tissue massage and joint stretching to myofascial mobilization and more. By taking his home-study continuing education course that focuses on the bottom half of the body, students can learn how to solve pain problems throughout this often troubled area.
The distance learning class that features the majority of techniques geared toward this section of the body is called Lower Body, and it lives up to its name. This continuing education program contains a whopping six broadcast quality DVDs that show Dalton performing each technique in a way that is both crystal clear and easy to understand. He trains the student, step by step, to apply these skills the right way for effective client pain relief. There are also many animation and dissection images included in the DVDs. These allow the viewer to understand even more about the client’s pain condition and the tissues he or she will be working with in order to address that condition. In addition, the course also comes with the amazing Dynamic Body textbook.
Learn to Ease Lower Body Pain
Students who finish this CE program will earn 32 hours of continuing education credits. These credits, often called CEUs, can be used to renew and maintain one’s license to practice massage therapy and other forms of hands-on therapy. Completing this class also means earning the impressive credential of Certified Myoskeletal Therapist: Lower Body Specialist. When you are able to show that you have this official title, clients and employers will know you have been trained in Dalton’s popular method of pain management. This method is called Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, or MAT for short. Clients and employers also will know you have specialized skills when it comes to using MAT on pain conditions that affect the bottom half of the body.
The list of pain problems you will learn to address by taking this Lower Body home study class is long and varied. Within the Dynamic Body textbook and the six-plus hours of high definition video footage, students will gain MAT skills for treating issues from the spine and hips down to the legs and feet. Even better, those who complete this course also will learn how to address the body as a whole rather than simply focusing on the specific symptoms and site of the pain. For example, the first DVD in the set that comes with this course is all about tuning the spinal engine. This is a process that allows therapists to search for the true sources of each client’s pain.
