About The Event

Facilitated Stretching is a safe, simple, yet dramatically effective streting technique that can be used with a wide variety of clients to regain or improve flexibility. It's easy to learn and to incorporate into your current massage practice.

Facilitated stretching, combined with soft tissue work, will enable the practitioner to obtain greater overall success in client treatment sessions. Additionally, a program of self- stretching using these techniques can  be invaluable for clients in their home stretching programs.

Massage therapists work with soft tissue injuries in a way that few other practitioners do. That's why athletes and active individuals experiencing chronic conditions  of the lower extremity seek out their massage therapists to help them recover. Sports massage techniques are widely used to address musculoskeletal  complaints of the lower extremity and are a valuable adjunct to the repertoire of any massage therapist interested in treating injuries. 

Focuses on these chronic injuries that respond well to clinically-oriented sports massage:

chronic ankle sprain, achilles tendinopathy, fibularis tendinopathy, hamstrings strain and tendinopathy, adductor strain and jumpers's knee.

The hands-on portion of this seminar (80% of the class) includes a range of applications, including compressive effleurage and petrissage, broad cross-fiber work, longitudinal stripping, pin and stretch, isolytic contractions, deep transverse friction, and facilitated stretching. The information and treatment protocols  presented in this live seminar are adapted from Bob's new book, "Sports Massage for Injury Care" released in 2019 by his long-time  publisher, Human Kinetics.
