The ATM SYSTEM
What is the ATM System: A system created that helps bridge the gap between massage therapy, personal training, pre and post rehabilitation skills. It is a 3-part system to help the massage therapist, personal trainer, physical therapy assistant, and other medical professionals improve their skills in assessment, multiple treatment modalities and then the importance of Muscle Stabilization. Each seminar contains special Orthopedic Assessments, Manual Muscle Testing, Neuromuscular Therapy, Medical Massage, Myofascial Release and Stabilization Principles unique to the subject or region being addressed.

Learner Objectives Become an even better Clinical Massage Therapist!
During this seminar we will reveal how sports injuries occur. The students will be able to assess an injury by using a screening for functional movement. Participants will be able to apply muscle testing and assess joint range of motion for more objective findings.
In addition, students will be able to describe how eccentric, concentric, proprioception, and dynamic stability have effects on muscle tissue when overloaded during a sports injury. They will be able to understand which muscles play an important role in the mobility and stability of the joint being overloaded.
As a result of participation in this seminar, students will have an understanding of when to apply neuromuscular therapy, trigger point therapy, active isolated stretching, hot stones, massage cupping and isometric to help with the rehabilitation of an injury. The students will be able to describe the principles of rehabilitation and their role in the treatment of injuries.
The learning environment is limited to 20 students. This allows for plenty of personal questions and hands on time with the instructor.
