Instructor: Randa K. Stanford, LMT
This course emphasizes Postural Integration for individuals with postural formations that the massage therapist observes on the patient’s/client’s body. These postural formations occur in the spine, pelvis, upper extremities and lower extremities and if corrected, can alleviate pain as well as improve functioning. Therapists will discover that some of the postural deviations are from habitual ways of resting or using the body. This class will provide guidance on how the therapist can assess and provide treatment to address and correct the posture. You will also be able to provide patients/clients suggestions for home programs to assist with correcting their postural deviations.
Part 1- Spine — The 10 spinal postures include increased cervical lordosis, lateral flexion of the head and neck, forward head posture, rotation of the head, kyphosis, flat back, rotated thorax, hyperlordois, hypolordois, and scoliosis.
