Event description

Description

This workshop is for professional Massage Therapists for CPD training, to add to their skills and knowledge for more effective treatments.


Muscle Energy Technique (MET) uses the body’s natural responses to effect change in the soft tissue. Reciprocal Inhibition works with antagonistic muscles, so that when muscle is contracted the other relaxes. We can use this to help relax tight muscles, and it’s particularly useful with joint restrictions and mobility issues.

We will spend some time looking at the physiology and theory, as well as discussing classic theories that are now being challenged. You will learn when it is safe to work and how to use this versatile and powerful, yet gentle and painless, technique throughout the body. It is recommended that if MET is new to you, Soft Tissue Release is learned first, to facilitate understanding and practice.

During the day you will:

Look at A&P regarding reciprocal inhibition and post isometric release. (Prior specific knowledge of this is not required.)
Explore how using this knowledge can work in practice.
Discuss the applications of the treatment
Observe and then practice using the techniques. Understand how to confidently use the technique on all areas of the body
Give and receive some massage and use MET; and share findings and feedback with other students
Have ample opportunity for questions
Learn how to incorporate MET into your treatments
You will receive an interactive workbook which includes pictures and room for your notes, giving you an ongoing reference from the day.

You will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course.

Many Associations accept this course for CPD and many are self-certifying. It is the responsibility of the Student to check with their Association. If necessary, the course syllabus can be provided.

You don’t need to bring any equipment or materials for the course as everything you need will be provided. The majority of the session is practical and you should dress accordingly.

Pre-requisite: You should have a full professional massage qualification level 3 or higher (such as ITEC, VTCT or similar). This course is also appropriate for beauty therapists with massage module (level 3), Sports Therapists, Sports Massage Therapists, and higher level qualifications in bodywork (chiropractic, physiotherapy, etc).
(I'm sorry - but this course is not suitable if you have Indian Head Massage only, or have done a massage qualification on-line or on a very short course. Contact me for details.)

It is recommended that if you don’t have prior knowledge of MET, that you have studied Soft Tissue Release or passive stretching.

The cost for the day is £125. Half price £62.50 for members of the Mentorship Programme (https://www.nickileemassage.com/about/)
