The Power of Touch is not exclusive to massage therapists.  It is a basic human need existing within each of us.  A massage therapist is trained in the Art of Touch; how to identify and effectively treat the numerous indications for massage therapy while adhering to high standards of professional ethics and boundaries.

In today’s busy society the element of touch is getting lost amongst responsibilities, skepticism, and fear; and yet massage therapy is viewed as a “safe touch” that can bridge the gap between our reservations and the requisite for human contact.

Some of the most frequently sought-after treatments address fatigue, stress, tension, muscle aches, pains, & dysfunction and soft tissue injuries, all of which can in many cases be reduced and eliminated through the proper use of professional massage techniques. Statistics outlining the trend in massage therapy have shown a consistent increase in the awareness and acceptance of massage therapy.

Is A Medical Massage Therapy Career Viable Today?

The field of massage continues to grow and strengthen to an increasingly effective and sought-after form of therapy and an ever-increasing alternative to Western medicine. In fact, it’s been a very effective and efficient way to heal many musculo-skeletal, neuro-muscular, and musculo-fascial issues for many decades. Yet it is just now becoming more recognized for that capacity to reduce or resolve so many “Soft Tissue Issues.”

That recognition is coming from both Grass-Roots Consumers — the Clients & Patients — as well as the medical professions.

A career in massage therapy affords a flexible schedule as well as a wide range of avenues in which to practice.  The standards by which all licensed massage and bodywork therapists adhere promote continual advancements within the field of massage therapy.

Now is a great time to jump into the field of massage therapy; class sizes are small, the program can be completed in just six months, and it is a very reasonable investment for your future.

Our highly specialized, medically therapeutic curriculum focuses on giving you the full range of clinical tools you need to be among the best, Leading Edge Therapists in the industry, able to work effectively and efficiently with the most challenging clients.

Students Graduating from NCSAB - Your Clinical Therapy, Medical Massage CareerWith a track record of 100% pass rates on national exams, we will, in six or twelve months, prepare you for a highly rewarding, life-long career helping people resolve their musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, restoring them to a better life in the process.

Your Primary Focus In Medical Massage Will Be On …

The Soft Tissues of the Human Body — directly on the muscles, fascia, tendons & ligaments, and to a lesser degree and indirectly the organs, nerves, & vessels — comprise a vast portion of the Myo-Structural Body.

And, the muscular components — with their ability to produce a substantial degree of contraction, shortening, hardening, dehydration & irritation of nerves — can exert many forces upon other soft tissues and joints & bones, producing many tensions, stresses, and pathologies in the body.

Learn about Muscle, Fascia Structure for medical massage - structural bodywork

We find relaxation & reduction of C.E.M.&.N.T. (Chronic, Excess Muscle & Nerve Tension & Stress) to be a valuable key to reducing or eliminating many of the tensions and stresses producing so many conditions and pathologies in the body. Relaxation of muscle cells reduces tensions and stresses on a wide range of tissues in the body.

You’ll become an expert at facilitating your clients in learning to Feel, Relax, Lengthen & Balance those overly tense musculo-fascial units causing so many problems for so many people.

Clinical / Medical Massage Therapy is seen by many clients, patients, and physicians as an ever-expanding alternative to Western medicine. Increasing numbers of Western-trained physicians are turning to various forms of massage therapy to help their patients with a wide range of “soft tissue issues.”

Your Clinical / Medical Massage – Bodywork Career in Charlotte NC

What, Exactly, Will You Be Able To
Do When You’ve Graduated?

Well, it’s a wide-open field, ripe for innovation and creativity. Your medical massage therapy career has a wide range of possibilities, limited only by your imagination. And of course, you don’t have to go the Clinical / Medical route if you prefer the Relaxation / Spa end of the market.

Yet having that clinical / medical knowledge & skill will enhance your value wherever you work.

Physicians and Clinical / Medical Massage
& Structural Bodywork

Another opportunity is working with physicians who understand the value of soft tissue therapy treatments for many of their patients’ painful afflictions difficult to treat by other means. Many physicians hire massage / bodywork therapists to work in their clinics or hospitals.

Others refer to therapists in private practice or at the many specialized therapy clinics featuring massage & bodywork.

You’ll become an expert at understanding and working with such soft tissue issues, helping your clients achieve the results they’re looking for. Physicians very much appreciate the relief and improvement you provide their patients.

Your ability to work “Think & Work Structurally” with clients & patients, revealing to them our insights, strategies, and techniques, will give that “edge” you need to be a highly valued practitioner by all.

Of course, you’ll be free to work with Private Clients without a physician’s referral or supervision, yet the more relationships you build with medical and health care professionals, the greater your referral base will be.

It is our job to make you so knowledgeable, skilled, and conversant about soft tissue issues and their causes that physicians will quickly realize you truly are an expert in our field of health care.

Anti-Aging or Elegant Aging Therapy

One huge market rapidly opening up is the Baby-Boomers who have started retiring in large numbers. They are one of the most health-conscious groups of people we’ve ever seen. And many of them have sufficient funds to invest in their health care.

As we age, our muscles accumulate what we call C.E.M.&.N.T. (chronic, excess muscle & nerve tension & stress) also known as “tight muscles,” usually including hardening of the surrounding fascia and “tightening” of the tendons. As muscles, fascia, and tendons tighten, harden, and shorten, various aches & pains, reduced function, and pathologies very often result.

We have found many of the symptoms people experience are, basically, little more than “tight muscles.” Yet their negative effects can profoundly influence the function and comfort of the human body. Eventually, this negatively affects their Quality of Life, as well.

Although it is of course, ideally, best for them to work with you preventively before they have too many problems and soft tissue issues to deal with, in many cases it will be when their quality of life is diminished, or suffering, they’ll be far more motivated to seek your services.

deep relxation from medical massage & structural decompression

Radically Relaxed Kitty

Your newfound ability will be to help clients Feel, Relax, Lengthen & Balance their soft tissues; their muscles, fascia, and tendons. This, in turn, with Radical Relaxation, DE-compresses tendons, joints, ligaments, and other tissues and structures of their body. That, in turn, reduces or relieves many of the problems arising from such “tight muscles and fascia.”

Your training allows you to provide, via deep neuro-musculo-fascial relaxation, in turn providing “Anti-Aging” or “Elegant Aging” therapy for Clients who want to proactively reduce the tensions and stresses in their bodies, keeping them feeling younger and more vital. YOU will help them prevent many of the afflictions affecting so many people as they get older.

We call it “Myo-Structural De-Compression & Balancing.” And you’ll know how to do this when you complete your training at the FLSASB. … (“MYO-” means “musculo-.”)

This decompression and balancing process can take a few weeks to a few months. Then they often switch to a “maintenance mode” where they come in, for example, on a monthly basis for “tune-up” sessions.

An entire practice can be built on that approach alone. After a few years, many forward-thinking and well-trained therapists can be booked up for the entire year just on their maintenance appointments.

Sports & Athletics (Sports Massage)

Athletes & Sports Enthusiasts who use their bodies a lot can benefit in many ways. For example, golfers need specialized therapy to maximize their follow-through on their golf swing, not to mention relieving the stresses and tensions that naturally build up while playing golf.

Working with professional athletes and or sports teams can be a very rewarding career path.

The NCSAB does not teach the “standard” sports massage methods. Many Sports Massage methods have a standard “routine” for performing a more generic sports massage service. We at NCSAB have our own approach, where we directly target an athlete’s or musician’s specific challenges and address them with tailor-made sessions.

And, our manual technique, with our No Pain, More Gain method, provides a unique experience most experienced Clients say they’ve never experienced before. You’ll learn how to do this style of therapy at NCSAB.

Maternity & Infant Massage & Bodywork

For those of you with an affinity for young families and the child-bearing years, maternity & infant work can be a way to channel your career — with your unique insights, knowledge & skills — into a very rewarding niche.

A mother’s body goes through many changes during pregnancy, and many of them produce pain & dysfunction patterns due to increased tension in the musculo-fascial & neuro-muscular systems.

Understanding changing gravitational pulls and how they change as the child grows in the womb helps you understand what muscles get overly tense and stressed. You can provide relief for the many mothers who suffer discomfort, restricted range-of-motion or even pain as a result of these body changes.

It is also known that very young children, from infancy on, respond VERY well to proper tactile stimulation to the skin of the body. This stimulation, in turn, accelerates the growth of nerve tissues.

One interesting aspect of the health aspects of the more general style of Swedish Massage is the proven effect it has on the improved development of infants. It’s been shown children are far more well adjusted and healthy when they’ve had sufficient touch from an early age. Infant Massage has been demonstrated to improve the growth of nerve tissue and other body systems.

By virtue of the skin’s close association with the central nervous system, this cutaneous [skin] stimulation is literally awakening organic functions in the newborns’ internal organs, and without it their chances of survival are markedly diminished.

Even those who had been previously retarded showed dramatic increases in their weight, height, energy, and mental acuity. In institution after institution, the mystery of infant merasmus* was cleared up: The tactile stimulation associated with tender, loving care was absolutely crucial to a baby’s development. Without it, no amount of food and no kind of medicine could produce a healthy individual.

(* Marasmus is a form of severe malnutrition characterized by energy deficiency.)

Infant Massage might well be an excellent career opportunity for therapists with an affinity for families and children. If you have an ability to teach, teaching infant massage, and / or couples massage can be a  great and rewarding adjunct to your practice. It also gets your name out there to a wider range of potential clients.

Corporate Wellness & Stress Management

The value to businesses and corporations to keep their employees happier and healthier is growing by the day. And it is getting more recognized, as well. Much research is being done demonstrating the value of such wellness & stress management and ergonomic programs.

Your insights into posture and structure, and C.E.M.&.N.T. (Chronic, Excess Muscle & Nerve Tension & Stress) can make you very valuable to a company that recognizes the value of providing their employees’ ways to make them happier and healthier, and with less stress and tension.

One way to get known and build a therapy practice is to develop a routine you can perform on employees while they’re sitting right in their chairs at work. Or you can bring a massage chair.

The principles and techniques you’ll learn from us are directly applicable to such environments.
