Applications of Pain Science in Massage Therapy

You know what it’s like to feel pain. But you may not know the science behind why you hurt.


Pain science—the study of the complex interaction between nerves, the spinal cord, and the brain as well as social and psychological factors—has evolved along with research into the mind-body connection. New scientific perspectives and fundamental shifts in our understanding of how pain occurs have dramatically affected medical care.


Massage therapists see many people seeking relief from pain or discomfort and are uniquely positioned to benefit from current information about pain. This course will teach you how to integrate pain science and the biophsychosocial model into your practice to help clients increase relaxation, reduce stress, and feel less pain.


Participants must have completed some massage therapy training prior to taking this course. Completion of The Heart Touch Method is also recommended.
