Massage Professionals Update

Earn credits through articles you've already read in our Massage Professionals Update e-newsletter.

Learn the role that massage can play in easing arthritic pain. Combining four articles written especially for the Institute's Massage Professionals Update E-newsletter, this brief program will provide insights into:

  • Typical symptoms of osteoarthritis and the role massage plays in addressing this condition.
  • The five most common pathologies that cause joint pain.
  • Most common cause of arthritis in the hands with two common therapies to ease pain.
  • Five forms of psoriatic arthritis and factors contributing to it.

In the Arthritic Conditions & Massage program we've combined four articles written especially for the Institute's Massage Professionals Update. These four articles include:

  • Massage Therapy Provides Pain Relief From Osteoarthritis - Caused by the breakdown and eventual loss of cartilage of one or more joints, osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, affecting over 20 million people in the United States. Whether performed in an office or spa, discover what bodywork methods can effectively relieve the pain and discomfort of osteoarthritis.
  • When Clients Present With Joint Pain - Despite seeming to be a simple, straightforward complaint, joint pain can have several different origins. Bodyworkers who are familiar with the five most common causes of joint pain and their respective implications on massage therapy can be especially useful to joint pain riddled clients.
  • Two Treatments to Relieve Hand Arthritis - The onset of arthritis will become increasingly common as the "baby boomer" generation continues to age. Discover two methods for treating the pain, swelling and loss of movement associated with this condition.
  • Using Massage Therapy to Help Psoriatic Arthritis - Before a client with psoriatic arthritis comes to you seeking relief, make sure you know about this condition and understand when massage might aggravate it.

You can either read the articles by clicking on any of the titles above or upon enrollment you'll be able to access these articles and your online test through your online course account.

Course Reviews

Rebecca Crouse, NCTMB

Thank you for this fun and informative course. I look forward to using my knowledge with my clients :) I feel a huge boost of confidence now when dealing with those who suffer from arthritis and similar conditions discussed in this course.

Janet Ruckrigl, LMT, NCTMB

The pictures added visual knowledge about arthritis, making the topic easy to understand. I will use this knowledge in my massage therapy practice.

Kathleen Warm, LMT

The reading material was great. I had already know about paraffin treatment. I knew a little about Balneotherapy. I thought it was a good idea that one still had to read the informationto find "the answers".

Carolyn Stubbs, LMT

This course is magnificent. So many people that I know have some form of arthritis; including myself from a car accident. I have been using some of these techniques on myself and have been reaping the benefits. Now I will be able to help my clients more efficiently. Thank you.

Natalie Beversluis, NCTMB

Very clear & concise - I enjoyed the presentation of the material, and the website; the test questions were well written and relevant. I'm looking forward to receiving the Massage Professionals Update newsletter for more information.
