In this interactive and challenging seminar, Chiropractic Physician, SOMI Certified Medical Massage Practitioner/Trainer and Licensed Massage Therapist Dr. Jeff Cullers, will introduce you to the science of and the clinical application of 3 days of exciting training in Medical Massage. We will take you step by step from the theory of Medical Massage Concept to the detailed hands-on application.
Friday: Introduction to Medical Massage from Theory to Application.
This day of lecture stimulates and challenges the mind and opens your professional horizon to the clinical application of Medical Massage. The goal is to build a mental vision of the Medical Massage Concept based on the latest scientific data.
Saturday: Hands-on Training in Basic Medical Massage Techniques.
This hands-on training will optimize basic Medical Massage skills to be clinically efficient for application of corresponding protocols. It is a delight to learn the collection of 60 clinical massage techniques gathered by SOMI throughout entire Western School of Massage Therapy. We discuss their step by step application, indications and contraindications and effect on the soft tissues. We will introduce such unique and frequently unknown techniques as effleurage with unequally distributed pressure, double scrolling kneading, Sarkisov-Sirasini’s Friction, etc.
Sunday: Medical Massage Protocol for Chronic Headaches.
Today all the pieces of the puzzle 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 be able to use the same pattern over and over to formulate Medical Massage Protocols for more than 70 of America’s most common somatic disorders through SOMI’s publications, support and the Video Library.
Hands-on training for Chronic Headaches will focus on the origin of headaches, their major differences and principles of evaluation of patients with various types of headaches and step by step treatment protocol individually customized to each patient.
SOMI’ Medical Massage protocol for Chronic Headache is currently used in PT Departments of Barrow Neurological Institute, St. Joseph Hospital and other medical clinics.
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!
