Sport Massage Course with Ryan Young, BHSc, RMT, PTS, SMT(cc) This is a two-day course introducing the theory and application of Sport Massage. This course will review key concepts of Musculoskeletal Anatomy and Exercise Physiology as they pertain to Massage Therapy and Athletic Performance. The focus will be to build on these concepts so as to ensure participants are able to safely and effectively provide Sport Massage treatment for athletes at all levels of competition. The course will combine Lecture, Discussions, Demonstrations, and Practice. Both Swedish and non-Swedish techniques pertinent to Sport Massage will be reviewed in the context of Pre, Inter, and Post Event situations. Participants will discuss appropriate application of techniques based upon the timing of application with respect to the athlete's competition/training schedule. This knowledge will then be combined with a review of soft tissue presentations and how we determine which techniques are appropriate for those tissues.
