Course Description

The core competencies of a massage therapist call for the integration of systemic disorders, conditions and treatments into client care and our assessments offer the ideal opportunity to screen for seemingly unrelated health conditions.

As therapists it is entirely possible that we are the first professional that a woman will disclose potential menopausal symptoms to. Therapists spend time with clients, the time so often lacking within a medical consultation.

The British Menopause Society Survey of womens’ experience of Menopause (2016) suggests more needs to be done to educate women about their menopause symptoms and the treatments available.  The BMS vision for Menopause care states that “All healthcare professionals should have a basic understanding of the menopause and where to signpost women for advice support and treatment whenever appropriate.” (Dr H Currie, K Abernethie & Mr H Hamoda, 2021).

Better still, our therapeutic interventions can legitimately incorporate appropriate exercises and pain and stress management techniques that are integral to a holistic approach into client care.

The course video tutorials and 160 page illustrated text and comprehensive 300 page workbook provide Pilates Practitioners; Massage and Manual Therapists with a comprehensive understanding of how the core functions, and how stabilization helps promote health and proper movement patterns through the development of balanced muscles, joint alignment, and core control. It discusses the menopause in detail, the symptoms,  the long term health consequences and how Pilates can help to alleviate them.
