Myofascial Foam Rolling and Movement Repatterning | 4 CE hours
Self-Massage Techniques for You and Your Client
Foam rolling is a great tool for home-care between massage therapy sessions. At Hands On Health, we call it the client’s home massage therapist. We have found that it greatly assists in muscle and fascia health maintenance and can make a treatment program more effective and less uncomfortable.
Your client can “take their massage home” by working with a foam roller for stretching, positional release, and self-massage of painful and tight muscle regions. Foam rolling massage is a wellness technique and should not be used if your client is in an acute healing phase or post surgical rehabilitation.
