Do your hands or wrists hurt after a deep tissue massage? Do you find yourself exhausted at the end of a long day of massage? Do you love being a massage therapist but worry you will have to quit soon because your body just can’t handle it anymore? If you answered “YES!” to one or more of these questions, then this class is for you.
When we have finished you will have a solid understanding of how to safely and productively use your body as a tool to deliver deep tissue massage; you will have practiced palpation skills with your fists, forearms and elbows and have more confidence in using these tools regularly in your work setting; and you will be able to deliver more pressure with less effort.
Therapists who have taken this course say they no longer hurt and they feel like they could practice forever.
I used more pressure in the 2 days with Melissa in her Easy Deep Tissue class than I have in the past 2 years. The best part is that I didn’t feel any pain anywhere in my body afterwards. I feel so empowered after taking Melissa’s class!

I took Melissa’s easy deep tissue class a few weeks back. I was already a strong deep tissue therapist, but I always like learning new ways to use my body more efficiently. I learned several new techniques that felt great to my body as a therapist. I asked a few of my regulars what their thoughts were and they loved the new techniques! The neck work was, “the best you’ve done on me!” said one client. I will definitely use these new tools I’ve learned in my continued practice.
