Professional Massage Therapy Training

Orthopedic Massage Certificate

Classes will be based on the most current research of Anatomic Structures, Pain Science & Advanced Massage Techniques.

Students will learn to create treatment plans using assessments of Neuro-Myo-Fascial tissues followed by condition appropriate techniques.


A series of 5 six-hour classes covering the following body regions (30 CEUs):


Each class will count as 6 CE hours.

Students who complete all 5 classes (and pass assessments for each class) will receive a certificate of completion.

Course Objectives for each Class:

  • Identify Anatomic structures and endangerment sites in the region

  • Understand the Antagonistic / Synergistic relationship of muscles and how imbalances can lead to discomfort and dysfunction

  • Learn effective assessment to identify common soft tissue problems

  • Learn various techniques to work on conditions that address tissue restrictions or weaknesses

Investment: $159 per 6 hour class

Instructor: Joe Frazer 

Future Class Topics Massage

Our industry has many good Massage Therapists out there. We need to go from delivering a good massage to a treatment that can address and possibly help clients to correct soft tissue issues in a consistent manner. Our training will support them in those areas. Come to our facility or we can come to you for group classes.


Class Topics (separated into 8-hour classes and hands-on):


  • Onsite workplace (massage and assessment) protocols

  • Carpal Tunnel/Thoracic Outlet

  • Golfer/Tennis Elbow, Tendonitis (acute), Tendonosis (chronic)

  • How to address postural issues and short tight muscles/long tight (inhibited) muscles


Class Objectives:


  • Teach massage therapists to desensitize clients to their beliefs that their challenge (herniated disc, tendonitis, strains, etc.) is THE problem. Therapists need to go after their “beliefs/fears/threats” (Adriaan Louw) that hold them in their pain cycle.

  • Describe and show long vs short tight muscles

  • How RSI’s and postural imbalances lead to muscle imbalance and how that can lead to tendonosis, nerve impingement, headaches

  • Teach basic assessment techniques, ROM, muscle resisted testing, muscle strength tests, functional movement, staying aware of the client’s energy and acceptance of testing and treatment

  • Show how myofascial can help loosen tight muscle and how neuromuscular techniques can awaken inhibited muscles

  • Emphasize how even with protocols you need to be tuned into your client’s “energy” to adjust or change your techniques

  • Cover common soft tissue pathologies and location differences (tendon issue in elbow vs shoulder, what are the similarities and how are they different)

  • The importance of client at home follow up work and how to maintain client compliance
