Facial Massage CEU Course – Outline and Learning Outcomes
As a professional licensed massage therapist, your job is to provide your clients with a therapeutic approach that relieves pain, calms the mind, and increases overall wellness. While enrolled in a course of study, you learned a wide range of techniques and therapeutic approaches to provide clients with the highest quality care possible. This course is designed to teach you about topics in Facial Massage that include anti-aging, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction and the sinuses.
The largest part of the United States population consists of the “Baby Boomer” generation which were born between 1946 and 1964 and “Generation X” which were born between 1965 and 1980.
These two generations make up most of the population seeking alternatives towards aging gracefully without heavily leaning towards invasive procedures to look younger.
Facial massage accomplishes a non-invasive and natural alternative solution for the effects of aging. Its efficacy is positive in nature as massage provides relief from muscular and fascia tension, allowing connective tissues to become more pliable; creating a natural healing environment which also reduces sinus related issues, TMJ dysfunction, and tense jaw syndrome.
What if there were a form of massage therapy that could circumvent these myriad problems? A technique that could treat patients on an energetic level, supporting them in a grounding and fundamental way, while also providing deep, penetrating therapeutic results without the need for the practitioner to expend an intense amount of physical energy? This technique would be simple, aesthetically pleasing, effective, and appealing to clients.
This technique exists. And with our Facial Massage CEU course, it’s readily available to practitioners like you.
This modality can enhance any form of massage therapy or other healing modality that you might currently employ in your daily practice. If you’ve been in search of facial massage training, look no further than this comprehensive online course from Panda Massage CEU™.
Learning Objectives for Our Facial Massage CEU Course
So, you’re ready to get started with this course. Why, you ask, should you take the time to read through a list of learning outcomes? There are a couple of important reasons.
First, by examining a list of this class’s learning objectives, you’ll understand what you can expect to gain from participating in this course. And, secondly–and perhaps even more importantly–you stand to gain as an adult learner. When taking on new information as an adult, there are both disadvantages to be overcome (maybe it’s been awhile since you’ve been in school) as well as advantages to be harnessed (you’re motivated, focused, and probably more interested in the content than the average college student). As a result of preparing you for what the course will cover, reading through the learning objectives will help to increase your level of retention throughout the course and aid in making your learning more effective and efficient.
In layman’s terms, our continuing education course will cover the history of the technique, its benefits, various contraindications, and an effective sequence of techniques for you to use in your massage practice.
That said, let’s go into more detail. After completing this course, you’ll be able to accomplish the following:
Identify the Benefits of Facial, Sinus, and TMJ Massage
A facial massage will rejuvenate the client as well has help ease symptoms of TMJ dysfunction, muscle fatigue, headaches, and sinus or upper respiratory related conditions. These skills assist the licensed bodyworker in learning how to use add-on services to a full body massage or market a stand-alone service while offering an alternative for those who would otherwise be generally contraindicated for a full body massage
Recognize the Structural Components of the Facial Region
In order to be able to do a proper facial massage, pinning tissue to the bone in order to create maximum benefits, the practitioner must clearly understand all cranial and facial structures. Once you know these important structure locations, you can either avoid them as endangerment sites or use them to your advantage.
Identify Contraindications and Cautions
Every technique has contraindications. While facial massage can be incredibly effective and highly therapeutic, the nature of this technique means that it’s contraindicated for certain conditions. In this course, you’ll learn about the various conditions for which this form of therapy is contraindicated.
Employ the Lymphatic System Patterns
According to Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, the “Lymphatic System is made up of very complex network of ducts and vessels. These ducts and vessels help transfer white blood cells and antibodies throughout your body and to your organs. This can help strengthen your immune system and combat infections. Using lymphatic facial massage helps give your Lymph System a tune-up”.
Step-by -Step Sequence Protocol of Facial Massage
Learning a new massage technique can sometimes be overwhelming. There are so many possibilities with the new approach: where do you start? As part of this course, you’ll learn a complete therapeutic sequence of techniques. After completing the course, you’ll be able to incorporate that sequence into your practice, and use it as a framework for developing your own approach and modality. Please note: before you do incorporate hot stones into your practice, be sure to check your states certification requirements in case further in-person training is needed.
What are CEUs, and Why are They Important?
Your continuing education as a massage professional involves two important components. On the one hand, your daily experience in the clinic provides you with a practical education that’s an absolute necessity to your professional growth. At the same time, however, it’s equally essential to continue your education in a more traditional way. If you’re wondering how you can do that, we’re here to help. Massage CEUs, or Continuing Education Units (GUIDE TO LMT CONTINUING EDUCATION), are an excellent way to keep learning long after you’ve graduated from a massage program.
And while massage CEUs are a huge part of professional development, they’re also often a legal requirement. In most states, all licensed practitioners are required to take a certain number of CEU hours (NCBTMB GUIDE) each year (or sometimes every two to three years) in order to keep their license current.
As an NCBTMB Approved Provider of CEUs, Panda Massage CEU can provide you with quality education that fulfills state and national requirements.
