Deepen your gift of healing as you learn to specialize in the techniques of massage with a ‘special touch’ that serve populations of massage clients requiring a light pressure massage. Emphasis is placed on the therapeutic and relaxation values as well as the necessary specialization of the medical needs of these clients.
Special Touch can be taken as part of the massage therapy diploma programs or as a part of the Associates of Occupational Studies in Holistic Healthcare. Students who complete this program receive a Certificate of Excellence in Special Touch.
This massage specialization is designed to combine the physical, emotional and spiritual healing of clients such as those who are pregnant or elderly, or clients with fibromyalgia, arthritis, nerve and muscle damage or other conditions.
