“Poor posture, faulty ergonomics, overuse, and stress can all cause various pathological conditions of the neck, as can injuries such as impact trauma and whiplash. Massage is an excellent treatment choice for addressing these disorders because the soft tissues play a role in these pathologies” – Whitney W. Lowe

In Clinical Massage for the Neck you will learn about:

  • The causes of Neuromuscular Neck Pain
  • Postural Distortions
  • Anatomy of the Neck
  • Traditional treatments

The soft tissue manipulations you will learn and practice will be closely supervised with instructor guidance on the techniques and body mechanics:

  • Superficial Fascial Assessment
  • Myofascial Release
  • Deep Longitudinal Stripping for Lateral Neck and Lamina Groove Musculature
  • Static Compression
  • Active Engagement to Cervical Extensors and Cervical Lateral Flexors

For many therapists this will be the first time to really have a thorough set of powerful techniques to dramatically help people with Neuromuscular Neck Pain.  Add this important, essential and valuable new skill level to your work!
