Friday: Introduction to Medical Massage from Theory to Application.
This day of lecture takes you on an exhilarating ride through Massage Science. It stimulates and challenges your mind and opens your professional horizons. This day will answer all the questions you’ve wanted answers to throughout your professional career. Together we build for you a mental vision of the Medical Massage Concept eventually transforming you into a Massage Clinician.
Saturday: Medical Massage Protocol for Osteoarthritis (OA).
Today all the pieces of the puzzle will fall into place. Using hands-on training we establish a logical understanding of the scientifically based pattern of soft tissue rehabilitation using the Medical Massage Concept. The second you experience the “aha” moment you will begin to use the same pattern over and over to formulate Medical Massage Protocols for more than 70 of the most common somatic disorders SOMI explains in publications and shows you in the Video Library.
You will cover the management of Osteoarthritis (OA) using Medical Massage Therapy. General principles of therapy are discussed using the knee OA as an example, but we will also cover individual differences of OA in other major joints. This class covers evaluation of the soft tissues which requires adjusted treatment protocols for cases of OA and OA-like symptoms.
Sunday: Medical Massage Protocol for Chronic Lower Back Pain (Lumbar Erectors, Quadratus Lumborum Muscle & Rotators).
You will learn how to treat Chronic Lower Back Pain through hands-on. The focus is on anatomy and physiology of Lumbar Erectors, Quadratus Lumborum Muscle and Rotators, their anatomical and biomechanical interactions and relation to spinal nerves; clinical evaluation and treatment Protocols.
ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Author, teacher and physician Dr. Jeffrey Cullers will be presenting this seminar on behalf of Dr. Ross Turchaninov the founder of The Science of Massage Institute (SOMI). Dr. Turchaninov is recognized as America’s leading expert in scientifically based Medical Massage Therapy. He has studied Medical Massage in 7 countries, published more than 50 articles in medical journals and authored three books, including Medical Massage, Volume I Second Edition, considered the authority on Medical Massage in America. His institute has analyzed and distilled the last 100 years of clinical trials from throughout the Western World to bring you incontrovertible evidenced based learning at the highest level.
FROM BASICS TO CLINICAL APPLICATION
Become a Massage Clinician. This opens your mind to making your own clinical decisions based on strict science and the data you gather from your patient. There are no two patients exactly alike! This is why strict protocols and techniques imposed on therapists have nothing to do with real Clinical Massage Science. We teach, support and nurture you until you become an independently thinking Massage Clinician, able to deliver predictable clinical results in a relatively short time.
Build and enlarge your Medical Massage Practice. We teach and guide you to build a successful Medical Massage Practice by marketing to and working successfully with physicians, chiropractors and physical therapists. When you deliver the results, they become your referral base!
Bridge yourself to a $100K income. A practice in Medical Massage has brought or is bringing all of our former students to a six-figure income. Indulge us by reading just two quotes from former students who are now successfully practicing Medical Massage as CMMPs:
“I charge $110 an hour. I average 30 to 40 treatments per week for about 48 weeks a year, so my practice generates between $158,000 to $200,000 in revenue a year before taxes and expenses.” S. Ryason, CMMP, LMT.
“I have a yearly income of $117,000. All of this revenue was generated by Medical Massage. I just recently reduced my hours by roughly half. If I decided to increase my practice to full-time again, I would easily generate $130,000 in revenue.” Curt Lezanic, CMMP, LMT.
Don’t be professionally bored. If you are bored with the same massage routine – full body massage, dark room, the same music day after day, year after year – this is the time to MAKE A CHANGE. Open yourself up to the stimulating field of Medical Massage Therapy. It makes each working day an exciting professional experience.
Only the Science of Massage Institute can guarantee that every technique and protocol is backed by 100% science, provides personal instruction from Dr. Cullers and Dr. Turchaninov and provides incredible support materials including our exclusive Video Library that make Medical Massage fun and easy. Whether you work in Stress Reduction, Sports Massage or the Clinical Massage field we offer information and training relevant to each branch of the massage profession. This is the only massage education program in the United States which has been scientifically tested (Saybrook University) and is being introduced to several hospitals and clinics as the source of Medical Massage for their Integrative Medicine Program.
In fact, if you don’t find this Medical Massage program unique and professionally rewarding, we will refund every penny of your enrollment fee! So, give yourself and your patients a chance!
