Video Course: Functional Movement for Massage Therapy

Deborah Kimmet

When clients pursue treatment, they often say they want to do “x” again, which is usually some sort of functional movement such as gardening or playing a sport. But hands-on work alone is sometimes not enough to restore healthy, functional movement. This presentation teaches you the basic principles of how to incorporate targeted, functional movement into your session. Find out how to use these strategies to release stubborn muscles, retrain dysfunctional movement patterns, and get your clients moving again.
