Massage Therapy and Pain Science
‘Enlightened Massage Therapists understand pain.’
Do you understand Pain Science? and what it means for your clients experience of persistent pain…
One in five Australians will experience persistent pain in their lifetime (Pain Australia, 2010. National Pain Strategy) and many of these people will seek out a Massage Therapy treatment at some time. When we understand the science of pain there’s so much (beyond the massage treatment) that can be done to support these clients and improve their health.
Massage Therapy and Pain Science is an online Professional Development course that has been developed for Remedial Massage Therapists and Myotherapists to help them build more skills for working with clients experiencing persistent pain. Here’s how:
Online workshops summarising Pain Science and the Biopsychosocial Model of healthcare allowing you the convenience to learn at times that are suitable for your schedule.
We support you to develop professionally by reflecting on existing massage practice and identifying where newly acquired Pain Science knowledge can be applied.
We provide a learning environment where you can think critically and apply Pain Science knowledge to develop new treatment practices that help your clients.
Access to an online forum where you are encouraged to share what you have learned with your colleagues, as a group we can go further.
