Requirements

Our course offers an in-depth exploration of Russian classical massage techniques, designed to equip aspiring therapists with both theoretical knowledge and practical proficiency. Beginning with a rigorous module on anatomy, participants transition to practical applications, delving into fundamental massage techniques inherent to the Russian classical school.

The course meticulously covers five primary massage techniques:

  1. Stroking: The foundational technique primarily applied to the skin and subcutaneous fat, often commencing and concluding massage blocks. Emphasis is placed on gentle movements, necessitating the use of oil for optimal efficacy.
  2. Rubbing: A deeper technique targeting subcutaneous fat and surface muscles, facilitating muscle warmth and enhanced elasticity. Intensive yet controlled movements form a core aspect of this method.
  3. Kneading: Focused on muscle work, this technique requires adept use of fingers, the base of the palm, or knuckles to engage large skeletal muscles. The intensity is notably higher, contributing to comprehensive muscle engagement.
  4. Pressure on Trigger Points: Also known as myofascial release, this technique involves penetrating deeply into muscles to release tension. By applying static pressure to specific zones, therapists can facilitate profound muscle release.
  5. Vibration or Percussion: Concluding many massage blocks, vibrational actions serve to calm clients post-intense exposure. Vital for relaxing the nervous system, these actions are carefully integrated into the massage sequence.

Beyond technique mastery, the course delves into critical considerations such as the duration and intensity of each technique. The optimal exposure time, supported by research on glycogen utilization in muscles, ranges from 30 to 60 seconds, ensuring efficacy without compromising client comfort.

A substantial segment is dedicated to aftercare, an integral component of a therapist’s responsibility. Participants learn to communicate effectively with clients, explaining potential post-massage reactions and providing detailed aftercare advice. This section covers hydration, dietary adjustments, lifestyle modifications, and strategies for a smooth recovery, enhancing the client’s overall experience.

Furthermore, the course emphasizes the importance of ongoing wellness discussions. Therapists are guided on recommending treatment programs tailored to individual needs, addressing stress, lifestyle changes, and additional professional support. Sensitivity and tact are underscored in these conversations, ensuring a holistic approach to client well-being.

By the course’s conclusion, participants emerge as proficient Russian classical massage therapists, adept not only in technique execution but also in client communication, aftercare, and wellness recommendations. The holistic training prepares them to deliver exceptional massage experiences and contribute to clients’ long-term health and relaxation.
