If you are a massage therapist or want to take your massage training to the next level, have you thought about broadening your horizons at a deep tissue massage school? As the name implies, deep tissue massage is designed to reach into deep layers of muscle. When other massage techniques may fail, deep tissue massage is said to be able to release tension, eliminate toxic wastes and restore flexibility and function to muscle fibres.
Can Anyone Learn Deep Tissue Massage?
Yes, anyone can learn deep tissue massage, but most deep tissue massage course providers highly recommend that students first have experience with other massage techniques. In many deep tissue massage colleges, other classes are a prerequisite to learning this technique.
Some deep tissue massage schools offer diploma level remedial massage courses that include in-depth training in this and other techniques. Their program may include:
- Swedish massage.
- Deep tissue massage.
- Anatomy and physiology.
- Several levels of remedial massage.
Still other deep tissue massage schools teach massage techniques that include deep tissue work but are not specifically referred to as "deep tissue massage." Hawaiian Kahuna massage is an example of this.
How Do I Choose a Deep Tissue Massage School?
If you wish to become a massage therapist, any deep tissue massage course provider you choose should be accredited by one or more of the recognised massage associations in Australia. This will help ensure that you receive professional instruction and training. It will also help you qualify for insurance and improve your professional profile.
