Concerned about presenting trainings that will contribute to the professional development of its members, the Professional Association of Specialized Massage therapist of Quebec, Mon Reseau Plus, has developed the Training meetings, continuous training days. With this project, the Association desires to offer its member the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the massage therapy practice and to increase their training hours.
These training days are only available to members of Mon Reseau Plus and are not eligible to grants from the Skills development fund. All the places for the 2016 Training meetings in Brossard, Quebec and Laval were filled. New dates and training could be announced for 2017.
In 2016, the training offered focused on muscle decongestion techniques. This training allowed the participant to discover why and how tensions and defensive muscle contractions occur. The training aimed at showing how to detect and recognize hardened and tensed fascia nodules. It has also demonstrated a simple method to stem them. At last, some decongestion tools to ease the therapist’s work and avoid injuries were presented.
In more details, here are the notions that were discussed during these Training meetings days:
theory on the tension and muscular contracture physiology;
demonstrations on how to use the decongestion tools;
upper limb muscular decongestion techniques;
adaptation of seated practice on clothing and skin;
lower limbs muscular decongestion techniques;
back decongestion techniques.
The training content, presented by the Académie de Massage Scientifique, was the same in the three visited cities and was aimed for therapist with 400 training hours. An illustrated professional training manual was also handed out to participants during these days.
