This course is part of our Clinical Massage Therapy Series
Clinical Massage Therapy: Torso Pain 24 CEUs
(Anterior Muscles 12 CEUs and Posterior Muscles 12 CEUs)
In this section of our Clinical Massage Therapy series, we address muscles that cause pain to the Torso, in particular we focus on abdominal pain. Abdominal pain can manifest as many symptoms, such as digestive distress, urinary urgency, menstrual/menopausal symptoms, and just plain tummy aches. For a longer list, of symptoms, see below.
When it comes to massaging away a whole host of symptoms, we find that some of the involved muscles are found on the front of the body and some are found on the back. We have divided the course into two sections. You may take either section or both, and you may take them in any order.
Torso Pain -Abdominal Massage – Anterior Muscles is a 12 CEU that addresses the muscles and trigger points residing in the abdomen that cause abdominal pain.
Torso Pain- Posterior Muscles – is a 12 CEU that addresses the muscles and trigger points on the posterior body that cause pain to the abdomen.
You can begin you study of Torso Pain with either the anterior muscles or the posterior muscles.

Abdominal Trigger Points can cause:
- Menstrual pain
- False appendicitis
- Food intolerance
- Groin pain
- And more!
“Symptoms from trigger points in the chest and abdomen muscles may be subject to more misdiagnosis and misdirected treatment than those in any other part of the body.” (Clair Davies, author of Trigger Point Therapy Workbook)
In this hands-on, teacher in the classroom class, you will learn the science and theory of trigger points in the flat muscles of the abdomen. You will also learn to palpate and release these trigger points. Be prepared to learn and practice the abdominal work that can release a whole host of client symptoms of discomfort.
What to Bring:
Bring pen and paper, massage sheets, hand towels, and lubricant. You should wear comfortable clothes. Women should wear athletic bras to make working the belly and getting on and off of the tables easier.
Participants will be working on each other’s abdomens during class.
Although we will review the anatomy of the abdominal muscles, to get the most out of this class, you should have a basic understanding the origin and insertions, and actions of the abdominal muscles. A basic understanding of Trigger Points is helpful but not necessary.
Class size is limited in order to assure ample instructor feedback for each participant.
