The Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy, based in Nicoya, Costa Rica, has announced that their 100 hour Asian Modalities certificate program will start on May 9. The course will go on through to May 26, 2016. Students can choose to take just sections of the course in order to obtain their continuing education credits. Full details are available through https://crsmt.com/asian-modalities-certificate-program/.
Tammy McGee from the Costa 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. In total, the course is 100 hours in length, and they count towards the continuous education requirements of the professional massage therapist."
For those who do want to break the course up to only obtain continuous education credits, the massage school has listed which courses will take place when. As such, the 60 hours of Shiatsu and Traditional Chinese Medicine will take place between May 9 and May 18, 2016. The 40 hours dedicated to Thai Massage will take place between May 18 and May 26, 2016.
During the course, students will learn about the assessments, benefits, indications, and contraindications for both Thai and Shiatsu massage. It will also provide students with knowledge on the proper ways of palming, elbow and forearm techniques, finger and thumbing techniques, joint mobilization, stretching, and food techniques. All of this is based on the most efficient and effective use of body mechanics.
"Warm-up, centering, and focusing methods are emphasized as well as postural awareness," adds Tammy McGee. "At the completion of the class, students are able to perform 60 minute traditional shiatsu and Thai massage treatments on a mat on the floor."
