Explain contraindications to post-surgery massage
List and describe the stages of wound healing
Then we'll really get into the heart of the course. I answer the critical questions that will take your massage practice to the next level and encourage your clients to rebook. You'll be able to:
List and describe which modalities are most effective at different stages of wound healing
Describe modalities and client self-care actions that can reduce swelling and other side effects of surgery
Design a sample session for a post-op client based on your current knowledge and skills
Lastly, we'll look at ways we can further improve our skills. You'll be able to list and describe continuing education options.
