Lymphedema or the risk thereof is a long term or late effect affecting many cancer survivors. Once triggered, lymphedema is not reversible and can at best be managed.

Event Summary
The causes of neck pain, shoulder and upper extremity pain are multidimensional and may involve physical and psychosocial factors. Successful treatments require a multi-faceted approach that may include massage, stretching, IASTM, topical analgesics, heat, ice, kinesiology taping and strengthening. In this workshop students will review commonly occurring pathologies and then practice all the aforementioned modalities and be encouraged to develop critical thinking skills to assess when in the progression of treatments each is appropriate.

Introduction to Active Muscle Therapy: Combining Movement with Massage @ National Holistic Institute - Sacramento Campus

Event Summary
Traditional massage treatments do not always adequately prepare an injured client to resume normal physical activity. AMT is a step in the treatment process. Research shows combining eccentric resistance with stripping massage can significantly increase functional ROM in a shorter time span. AMT can positively influence muscular strength, and endurance. AMT techniques are massage techniques which help re-balance the client’ s musculature within our scope.
