Catching up With the Latest in Massage Research with Mike Hamm

Key Findings and Why They Matter in Your Practice

Most of us got a few nuggets of massage research in massage school, and we learned a lot about the effects of massage (e.g. "massage breaks up adhesions"). But based on current research, many things that we were taught are just not true, or the mechanisms are different than we thought. What really happens when we do massage? This 7-hour class provides you with up-to-date findings on massage therapy research and a better way to use those findings to increase your effectiveness and boost your everyday massage practice.

  • How does massage really work?
  • Does massage therapy "flush toxins"? If so, which ones, and how?
  • Does massage therapy relieve muscle soreness? How?
  • What are massage therapy's effects on pain, inflammation, and perception?
  • Surprising findings on massage therapy's effectiveness in the treatment of anxiety, depression, chronic pain, visceral adhesions, and immune function
  • Cutting-edge science on fascia: its behavior, disease processes, and diagnostics
  • What does this mean for my massage practice?
  • Making better treatment decisions
  • Finding the best information quickly
  • Communicating more clearly with clients and colleagues
  • Improving how you take a medical history and monitor progress across sessions
  • Using research to boost your practice and referral base
  • Building a common language with physicians and other allied providers
