Balancing the Art & Science of Massage (Webinar) – Part 2


We recommend that you to view “The Balance” Part 1 before part-2, to give you the basic principals.

In part-2, Aran will expand on the concept of Pain Science. He explains that “touch improves health” and breaks down how the nervous system responds to massage. He reveals that trigger points are not necessarily the most important focus in clinical treatment and how a holistic approach is not only beneficial to the client, but it is significantly backed up by science.


Balancing the Art & Science of Massage is a two-part webinar series for massage therapists, discussing how science is changing the way we should be practicing massage. By exploring first what we can learn from science and looking at what science can tell us about people in pain, this opens the door to a new understanding about how massage can help those in need.

If you have ever been baffled about how to navigate the wonderful world of science and how this applies to massage, these webinars will guide you in the right direction. You will discover the importance of understanding and aligning knowledge with the intuitive approach that is intrinsic to massage therapists. These webinars are created to inspire you to think outside of the square!

Balancing the Art & Science of Massage (Webinar) – Part 2

The second webinar brings the balancing act into play, as we learn that interpreting science and translating this knowledge becomes an art, that we can use in a practical sense. We take a look at some relevant research and factors that drive pain, encouraging practitioners to adopt a new perspective.

In the role of the massage therapist, we recognise that different approaches are necessary to meet the needs of each individual client and there is no “one size fits all.” Here we will challenge what we know and discuss research-based models of care that are effective in providing the best outcomes for our clients.

What is covered in Part 2:

  • Factors Driving Pain
  • Non-specific Low Back Pain Research
  • What is Fear Avoidance?
  • Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
