Tumwater – Trauma Informed Release of Muscle Guarding
May 1, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm$125
Trauma Informed Release of Muscle Guarding
Learn how trauma in early life can cause chronic muscle guarding – also known as neuromuscular lock, or armoring. This is a common condition that massage therapists must be able to recognize so you don’t injure your client by pushing too deeply into locked tissue.
In this class, you will learn the purpose and remedy for guarded musculature.
Instructor will demonstrate how to guide your client to release their own muscle guarding using a method that is within the LMT’s scope of practice. Then, you will have the chance to practice this method on one another in class! Bring your sheets, lotion, and a smile!
