As massage therapists, we spend a lot of time working on our clients’ backs. And yet because we are so focused on all the big, beautiful muscles that spread across the back, we often forget what is underneath–the ribs. These small bones, and the even smaller muscles that run in between them, are essential to nearly everything we do each day. They protect and support every breath we take, and they provide the foundation that enables every movement we make with our arms and our head. This is a neglected part of the body. It shouldn’t be.

This instructor was very informative but I was hoping for a speed up button. he talked very slow and I felt like the videos could have been not as long. I also feel like the course should be more than 4 credits as there are lots of videos, many of them being half hour long!

I love the institute classes. I found the courses to be easy to learn from and take test simply from the comfort of my office.
