Sports Massage – Upper Body

2-Day Workshop (14 Contact Hours) $325

“Earl and the course were extremely helpful. I appreciate his willingness to help and his calm, approachable demeanor. I will definitely take any and all of his courses offered. This was a wonderful experience!”   Cheryl, Sports Massage – Upper Body

Revised and expanded!  I have integrated elements from my Orthopedic Assessment & Functional Anatomy course to create a more comprehensive educational offering.  The number of manual therapy techniques in this course has almost doubled, and you will also learn essential orthopedic assessment tests to identify the causes of the sports injuries.

In addition, information on how to market to athletes and sporting groups will be introduced, so you will leave this course with a plan on how to market yourself to the ideal sporting group for you.

Participants will learn proven therapeutic stretching and deep tissue manual therapy techniques to effectively release the muscles of the upper body. Techniques taught will allow you to deliver deep pressure without significant stress on your hands or fingers.

Once we have learned the techniques, we will discuss the mechanism of injury for the most common conditions and effective manual therapy treatment protocols for each condition:

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Rotator Cuff Strain
  • Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
  • Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer’s Elbow)
  • Wrist Sprains
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • And more!

Please bring a massage table, sheets and massage oil/lotion. Students should wear shorts and a t-shirt, tank-top or sports bra to allow easy practice of the techniques.
