About the Workshop:

  • Fun fact #1: Massage therapy is hard on your body. Work-related Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSIs) to the thumbs, wrists, and shoulders are some of the most commonly cited reasons for therapists to miss days of work.
  • Fun fact #2: When you aren’t working, you aren’t making money! Learning how to prevent, manage, and recover from repetitive stress injuries is an essential skill for the professional massage therapist.

After taking this course you will walk away with a rock-solid game plan for how to properly manage and recover from RSIs related to the upper extremity. Most importantly though, you will learn how to build strength and mobility in these tissues to prevent future injury and continue doing the work you love!


3 main objectives for this course:

  1. Learn the physiology of RSIs, why they happen, how they heal, and what you can do to prevent and manage future occurrences.
  2. Learn practical strength, mobility, and self-massage techniques that will facilitate healing and make you a more resilient massage therapist.
  3. Take all this information and use it to level up as a massage therapist by better helping your clients who are experiencing RSIs.
