A Pain in the Butt: How to treat hip and thigh pain

The pelvis involves 45 muscles, numerous nerves, bursae, ligaments, bones and more! The interaction of these structures impacts movement, health and well-being for all of our clients, yet the structures of the hip remain mysterious and elusive for most of us.  This course will give you a clearer picture of the functional anatomy of the hip and the Thai massage moves that address it.  We will also explore some common conditions and imbalances of the hip and consider ways to overcome them.

This course will introduce students to:

 

  • the structures and anatomy of the hip, thigh and low back
  • specific conditions of the hip and thigh
  • how to understand various kinds of hip pain
  • principles of injury assessment and treatment
  • how to use and modify Thai massage techniques to specific hip problems

This 1-day hands-on course is designed to provide students with the foundation of Thai Herbal massage. This form of Thai Massage blends the profound benefits of heat, aroma, herbs and acupressure.
