The Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy, which offers classes in Samara, Nicoya, Costa Rica, is proud to announce that they have launched their Asian Modalities Certificate Program. This 18­ day course will be offered twice this year, once in May and once in November. Those who are interested in the course are encouraged to visit the school's website at crsmt.com.

Tammy McGee, Director of Admissions for the Cost Rica School of Massage Therapy, says: "Students of the Asian Modalities Certificate Program will learn how to perform two types of Asian bodywork, shiatsu from Japan and Thai massage from Thailand, which are based on balancing energetic systems of the body. To give students a solid foundation of knowledge to support the hands­on skills learned, the history of these modalities will be presented, along with traditional Chinese medicine, including Qi, Yin Yang theory, Five Element theory, channels (meridians), tsubo, as well as principles of traditional Thai medicine."

During the course, students learn about indications and contraindications, benefits and assessments for Thai and shiatsu massage. Furthermore, they learn how to properly apply thumbing, finger and palming techniques, as well as forearm and elbow techniques, joint mobilization, stretching and food techniques. These will focus on efficient and effective body mechanics. An emphasis is placed on focusing, centering and warm­up methods, including postural awareness.

Those who complete the course will be able to perform an hour long Thai massage and traditional shiatsu massage on floor mats. This enables massage professionals to offer more versatile treatment options to their own clients. For the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy, the goal is to make sure students become the best practitioners that they can be.

The course information highlights the fact that students may be more interested in certain specific areas of Thai or shiatsu massages. They are both very versatile treatment options and most practitioners develop certain preferences over the course of providing massages.

The 18 ­day course is also an excellent option for massage therapists who are looking for continuing education units (CEU's). The 100 hour program is already drawing a lot of attention. While it is offered twice this year, spaces are limited. As such, people are encouraged to book as soon as possible.
