Video Course: Active Engagement Techniques

Whitney Lowe

Active engagement techniques incorporate active client movement along with specific massage treatment applications and can be applied to virtually any region of the body. Not only are they a great way to treat pain and injury conditions, they are also an excellent method for increasing the effectiveness of pressure during deep massage applications, making less work for the therapist.
