8 - Injury & Clinical Assessment

Injury and clinical assessment is one of the most important subjects in your course. Although one can learn good massage hand skills, applying the correct skill to the right area according to the condition is what makes the treatment beneficial or not. Learning how to perform a clinical assessment will teach you how to identify the current body presentation including any injuries or ailments and formulate a remedial or sports massage routine specific to your client’s needs. Consider, how can you hit the right spot, without first assessing where that spot is?

9 - Strength & Conditioning 

Strengthening and conditioning is a new area for the massage industry. After years of treating clients with many different presentations, we came to realise the importance of supporting clients with ongoing maintenance and  the health of the area treated. We would often tell clients to work on their posture in order to not cause an issue to re-occur only to have the client presenting with the same issue again. Strengthening and conditioning addresses this factor. In this subject you will learn resisted movement training to help clients work on their strength and stability, supporting them to have the ability to actually maintain the new prescribed posture.

10 - Legal and Ethical

This subject focuses on the legal and ethical requirements of your practice. The legal requirements are those which are laws and regulations for you to follow. Ethical is the teaching of what is ethical (a right standard) for you to practice. This subject teaches you the most up to date legal and ethical information specific to your course.

11 - Client Health Information

This subject first teaches further anatomical information to develop the student’s understanding of the musculoskeletal body. It then looks at how the student can use the health information to determine health conditions and analyse body presentation. 

12 - Professional Healthcare

This subject educates your role as a healthcare provider. In this subject, you will learn the principles of the healthcare system and how you as remedial massage therapist play a part in the whole system. Included is learning on how to work with other healthcare professionals.

After you have learnt your clinical assessment and can identify key features of the client’s ailment and presentation you will, in this subject, learn how to use those details to determine factors including: area to be treated, pressure, speed, frequency, duration, contraindications and other factors relevant to the treatment approach.
