The gift is in your hands; learn to use it at Oregon School of Massage!

We offer massage and bodywork courses for aspiring massage therapists, licensed professionals and the general public. We believe what a therapist communicates through their touch, combined with knowledge of the body and presence, can make the difference between a basic massage and a truly healing experience.

Myofascial Massage Introduction

Myofascial Massage Introduction Sep 30-Oct 1, $260, 12CEs - NCBTMB Approved

Myofascial Massage (MFM) aims to achieve muscle, organ and nerve relaxation via the release of the connective tissue. MFM is comprised of two separate and unique bodywork approaches known as Direct and Indirect. This class provides an overview to both approaches and a sampling of a variety of direct and indirect techniques (including demonstration and practice time with jostling, rocking, skin rolling, compression, and myofascial stretching). Massage therapists who practice myofascial massage report improved body mechanics, awareness, an increased sense of joy about bodywork and rave reviews from clients. (NCBTMB Approved)
