Buds to Blossoms Paediatric Massage Volunteer Program

Paediatric Massage Volunteer Program with AIDS orphans in Vietnam

Spend three weeks providing paediatric massage, infant massage and other forms of bodywork to AIDS orphans in Ho Chi Minh City.

Massage is of particular benefit to these children, because of its immune system- strengthening effect. It also promotes their general well-being by providing relief from pain and anxiety and helping meet their emotional and developmental needs through one-on-one nurturing attention and touch.

During the program, volunteers get a tremendous amount of hands-on experience of providing massage to children. Although the program's focus is primarily on caring for AIDS orphans, volunteers also spend some of their time offering massage to orphans with disabilities.

CPE points : 30

DISCOVER MASSAGE AUSTRALIA 

 

Discover Massage Australia is committed to ensuring that students learn a complete massage system for effective massage, rather than simply acquiring a set of massage strokes. Fundamental to this approach, we ensure that students are provided with all of the necessary knowledge to start a career as a massage therapist. Our range of courses offers students the ability to commence as a beginner and then advance their skills and capabilities, thereby developing into a skilful therapist, or, alternatively, to hone and improve the skill-set of therapists already at work in our industry.


We believe the massage treatment of any injury, muscular condition or relaxation session must be very thorough in nature in order to achieve maximum benefits. Thoroughness is taught and promoted in every aspect of our massage courses.


Importantly, our massage courses are endorsed by the Massage Association of Australia (MAA). At the successful completion of our Whole Body Massage Course, students are eligible for membership with the MAA, and may apply for Professional Indemnity Insurance.

Why Choose DMA?

  • Recognised Qualifications - Certificate Courses recognised by the MAA so you can start practicing immediately.
  • Our courses are 99% hands on learning. You start massaging within 15 minutes of the course commencement. We don’t sit around for half a day talking about the industry. We start you massaging.
  • Unique Techniques & Courses- DMA teaches you the best methods, systems, strokes and career/practice management skills developed by DMA.
  • Cost Effective - Our prices are among the best in the market
  • Convenience - DMA offers students a 'one stop shop' for all the other products and services required to be a therapist
  • Experience - The best teachers in the industry. Learn from highly experienced career therapists, not just academics.
  • Fun - Enjoy the vibrant, dynamic and friendly learning environment in first class facilities with accommodation in most locations. Massage therapy is a fun job so learning it should be to.

Our course pathway will enable you to begin your massage career by enrolling into our Certificate in Whole Body Massage Course. From there you can develop your skills further through our Deep Tissue and Advanced Deep Tissue training courses. Should you wish to further upgrade your knowledge and skills, we also offer the government accredited Certificate IV in Massage Therapy practice (HLT40312). The upgrade course is delivered in partnership with registered training organisational the Australian Learning Group 91165

What is taught at  DMA's Deep Tissue and Common Injuries?

We teach you how to fix injuries by using our thorough massage system and Unique Contractual Tendon release technique rather than teaching you just some remedial strokes with no sequence. If you want to be able to fix injuries and get that repeat customer then enrol into our Pathway courses. We look forward to teaching you.

What will our Pathway Courses teach you?

Each of the courses are designed to teach skills that can be applied immediately and developed further if desired. With each course we provide greater depths of understanding and technique and we support those practical skills with on-going advice and mentoring. We love to see our graduates do great things, so we do everything we can to help them.

Our massage therapy pathway will equip you with the practical skills you need to be able to offer quality, thorough and effective massage therapy to your clients.

At Discover Massage Australia we encourage and emphasise to all our students the need for continued learning, developing their skills and improving the standards of the massage industry.

Here at Discover Massage Australia we offer a 5 step practical guide to solving most muscular, tendon and ligament problems using our own proven Contractual Tendon Release & Contractual Ligament Release techniques.

We run our Massage courses in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane

MBA Pain Relief Seminars presents:  “MUSCLE BALANCE ANALYSIS”

 

MUSCLE BALANCE ANALYSIS

The Role of Structure and Posture in Pain

 

 

 

This is an excellent course for myotherapists, remedial massage therapists, and other health professionals interested in underlying structural and postural causes of persistent chronic and acute pain patterns that don't otherwise resolve.

Muscle Balance Analysis teaches skills to confidently discover and resolve pain-creating muscular imbalances in human posture and correct for (previously undetected) structural asymmetries. This highly practical 2-day seminar teaches participants a reliable clinical method to detect frequently overlooked perpetuating factors of soft tissue pain throughout the body, with special emphasis on leg length differentials and the very often missed or disregarded small hemipelvis. We will investigate how to determine and test for the presence of small but critical skeletal asymmetries in the legs and pelvis, combinations thereof, and the corrections required for both single and multiple asymmetries, whether ipsilateral or contralateral.

The balance of the weekend is spent in developing an understanding of how to interpret the results of these evaluations and successfully apply them in a clinical setting, as well as in refining the evaluation technique.

The participants will learn the MBA method of taking and charting a detailed structural and postural analysis using palpation of bony landmarks from an anterior, posterior, and lateral perspective, standing, supine and seated. We will teach a method of charting these measurements in a particular way that enables participants to easily interpret the findings and grasp their therapeutic implications.

Ample opportunity is provided to find out how the application of the MBA Approach to Pain Relief® will affect your practice in particular, to bring up for discussion complex cases/postural patterns that have been found in the class, and to discuss how these would be managed in clinical practice, the effect of structural and postural distortions on the viscera, how this affects specific sports, various occupations, the young, and the elderly.

Presenter Bio:  Al Skrobisch (C.N.M.T., B.A., Honours Graduate B.C.M.T., C.Hom., Paramedic Educator) is a Neuromuscular Therapist specialising in pain relief. He is the author of the fascinating and helpful book, Pain Relief for Life. A popular and enthusiastic teacher, Al has 45+ years of teaching experience, including many pain relief seminars throughout North America & Australasia. Students consistently praise his dynamic, focused teaching style, his sense of humour, and especially his ability to make complex anatomical concepts clear and easy to understand.
