Orthopedic/Medical Massage II

(Masters Level)

Take your medical massage practice to the next level with this interactive course.  We will cover assessments and treatment skills commonly taught in four year physical medicine degree programs.  In addition, we will share marketing strategies to help you increase your physician referrals.  The information that will be shared with you is based on our personal success building Orthopedic/Medical Massage Clinics.

The Orthopedic/Medical Massage II (Masters Level) series includes the following courses:

Postural Assessment
When postural distortions occur, excessive pulling from overworked and shortened muscles cause the vertebrae to misalign and entrap nerves, which results in acute and chronic pain and discomfort. We will teach you the first steps in Postural Assessment in order to properly assess your client, before moving into the proper treatment.


Upper Extremity                                                                                                                                                       We will continue to teach you specific protocols to treat the pain and dysfunction of Upper Extremity Musculoskeletal issues. The protocols will teach you how to resolve and rehabilitate conditions such as frozen shoulder, Rotator Cuff Strain, Tennis Elbow, Golfers Elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Wrist and hand pain. We have incorporated these protocols in our own clinic and helped our client’s resolve pain without surgery, which has created a steady “stream” of repeat and referral business.

Lower Extremity                                                                                                                                                     We will teach you protocols to treat the pain and dysfunction associated with musculoskeletal issues of the Lower Extremities. These protocols will teach you how to resolve and rehabilitate conditions such as, Hamstring strain, frozen hip, groin pain, knee pain, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and Morton’s neuroma and many more. Once again, all of the protocols have been designed to help the client resolve the issues as quickly as possible and grow the Orthopedic/Medical Massage of your dreams!!! We did it! So can you!!

"I always enjoy my visits and leave feeling better both physically and mentally.  All of the therapists employ their own style of massage in order to make each session a unique, positive, healing experience.  TC, Derrick, Matt, and Tonya have all provided me not only with excellent massages, but also knowledge on self-care in order to alleviate pain between visits."


"I have been receiving treatment from ABW for several years and for several months from Derrick to treat chronic neck and back pain that is aggravated by my job.  Derrick has helped me maintain flexibility and reduced pain at work and has helped me through an acute period of back spasms by being sensitive to my needs, aware of my history, and using a variety of techniques to address my specific problems."


"I've been suffering for several months with no relief.  After the first visit with Derrick, my pain was less and I felt so much better.  Now I've had three visits and I can move without pain again."


"I rely on massage and manual therapy to give me relief from my spinal stenosis.  The therapy I receive at ABW allows me to work and travel with minimal pain."


"I am extremely satisfied by the care I receive from Matt and Tonya.  They provide excellent treatments that help me with my pain."

Dr. C.

"I appreciate the time each therapist takes to explain things. The work feels tailored to my needs each time."


"The therapist worked on my shoulder and neck, eliminating the pain and tightness.  The discomfort in my lower back that I thought was chronic has also gone away!"


"Matt is professional and attentive.  I've seen him for many years now and he always helps me with aches and pains.  He surprises me every time."


"I was adamantly opposed to massages, but T.C. has done a wonderful job of teaching me why they are needed.  I highly recommend it." 


"My sweet 82-year-old mom has had two sessions with Joël Romig.  The results are nothing short of amazing.  Mom has scoliosis and arthritis and was really bent over.  This morning I noticed on our daily walk that Mom was standing almost completely straight--a noticeably significant difference!  What a wonderful Mother's Day gift.  Joël, you're the best!  I've been singing your praises to everyone that will listen.  Expect a lot of referrals.  We are super impressed with you and Advanced Bodywork!"


"I have been receiving manual lymphatic drainage treatment from ABW for about a year now.  I have seen constant improvement with every session.  The therapy I have received from Tonya Cary has been remarkable and the explanation on the lymphatic system has given me knowledge on the treatment I am receiving.  This has given me relief from chronic swelling and has allowed me to live a more comfortable life."
