SportsMassage 1 & 2
Chuck LaFrano’s SportsMassage course is the result of his 7 seasons as head of the massage team for the Chicago Bears as well as his many client-athletes, plus over 18 years of teaching Sports Massage. You will learn: the critical role for athletes of the sacro-iliac joints and the tibia-fibula relationship, injury-solving and -preventing theories and techniques, pre-event techniques that improve cardio-pulmonary efficiency with clear contraindications, detailed approaches to rotator cuff and anterior cruciate ligament problems, simple, easy to implement proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation techniques, and more. Plus, Sports Massage techniques work very well on most physical problems and tissue conditions with non-athletes, giving them broad applications beyond the realm of sports.
