Description
Kinesiology for the Massage Therapist
Building upon foundational knowledge from musculoskeletal anatomy, students deepen their understanding with an emphasis on muscle groups used to perform specific actions. Furthermore, students directly apply this knowledge through the practice of ROM, postural and gait assessments to identify muscles involved in specific injuries. Finally, students learn how to integrate assessment techniques into a treatment plan for a more comprehensive approach to patient care.
