There are many points of difference between other courses and those offered by Discover Massage Australia, although the following aspects are of particular importance:
A comprehensive massage system, not just strokes
Discover Massage Australia is committed to ensuring that students learn a complete and thorough massage system for effective therapy or relaxation, rather than simply acquiring a set of technically-disjointed massage strokes.
Inherent within this approach to learning an entire thorough massage system is the conviction that Discover Massage Australia will ensure that you, the student, are equipped with the necessary knowledge to confidently start a career as a properly-trained therapist.
Thorough and highly effective
Rigorous planning and care underpins all instruction to ensure that the massage therapy being taught is extremely thorough and effective.
Our unique teaching method assists you to learn and memorise the strokes being taught. We don’t just simply demonstrate a stroke and then ‘move on’ like many comparable courses. We present and explain each stroke, you practice the massage technique before us, we revise the sequence, and then we reveal how to organically add this new technique to your massage repertoire. Only then do we collectively progress once everyone has absorbed the lesson.
Discover Massage Australia techniques are exclusive to DMA. Developed by the founding owner of ARMS which was acquired by DMA. They work directly on releasing tendons, ligaments, muscle fibres and fascia, rather than just focusing on the muscle groups. To achieve this singular approach, he developed two forms of massage therapy which have now been practiced by hundreds of our successful graduate therapists since 1987. These two techniques are referred to as:
# CTR CONTRACTUAL TENDON RELEASE TM.
# CLR CONTRACTUAL LIGAMENT RELEASE TM.
These techniques are also known as a Cross Fibre Release Technique.
NOTE: Before we explore these two specialised techniques pioneered by the founding owner in 1987, it is vital to first understand the significance of tendons and ligaments.
