These techniques may include Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and stretching. Emphasis will be placed on proper body mechanics and client positioning to optimize treatment outcomes while minimizing therapist strain.
  5. Treatment Protocols: Participants will learn comprehensive treatment protocols for each shoulder pathology discussed, integrating a combination of massage techniques to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, improve range of motion, and restore function.
