Training in Advanced Massage Therapy

In most massage therapy training courses, common types of massages.

such as Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, and sports massage are taught Some practitioners choose some advanced techniques to use with their clients.

Hot Stone Massage

This massage is simple in the therapist performing long strokes of Swedish massage holding smooth, heated stones. Chakra work may also be incorporated.

Proper training is necessary to ensure that the therapist does not accidentally burn the client or apply too much pressure.

Most massage therapy training schools offer hot stone massage at the weekend workshops and online courses are also available.

Craniosacral Therapy/SomatoEmotional Release

Craniosacral therapy, developed by Dr. John Upledger, of the Upledger Institute, may help to alleviate migraines, fatigue, nervous disorders, neck pain, etc.

It involves gentle touch to the head and neck with the goal of bringing the fluids that cradle the brain and spine into balance.

For craniosacral therapy, it is better to choose classes offered through the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators (IAHE). These classes have been developed in conjunction with the Upledger Institute.

Before you start to obtain your CST/SER certification, make sure you have a strong client base, since you’ll need to take several four-day courses, and each one will cost you over $700.


Referred to as myofascial structures, Rolfing involves the manipulation of connective tissue to bring them into alignment with gravity.

When this Rolfing came in to existence, it was a painful experience, but increasingly gentle techniques make pain during Rolfing a thing of the past.

The best way to become a certified Rolfer is to attend the Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colorado. It takes one and a half to two years for certification.


. Like acupuncture or acupressure, Shiatsu involves using stretching and pressure to manipulate the body’s energy flow.

Shiatsu reduces stress, improve circulation, regulate blood pressure, and will increase overall energy flow.

Many massage therapy-training programs offer a brief introduction to Shiatsu, but to get the certification, you need to attend 700 hours’ worth of classes.
