Find your Muscles - Clinical Anatomy

Can You Find Your Client’s Muscles?

This two day hands on Masterclass puts us back in contact with muscles. Be able to empower your clients with your muscle knowledge.

For massage therapists to be able to release tight fascia and muscle fibers it’s essential to be able to find specific muscles and identify the tissue between them.

This Masterclass workshop is flexible and designed to enable each student to work at their own pace to build their confidence and develop usable hand skills; including palpation and treatment techniques.

We will be learning techniques to find the key muscles and the tissue between them, and additional massage techniques to help your clients.
