How Massage Therapy Works
This course is designed to help manual therapists gain a greater understanding into the most up-to-date research around fascia, pain, touch stimulus and how these concepts interact with the brain. Through this interaction we delve into the idea of neuroplasticity and how it is that we, as manual therapists can take advantage of this connection to help reeducate the body’s movement and pain patterns.
