Why Massage Therapists are Heading to the Dissection Lab

Dec 16, 2023

Why are so many massage therapists heading to the dissection lab? The NY Times had the same question.

In a new article out this week, Danielle Friedman of The NY Times headed to the dissection lab with massage therapists and yoga teachers. What did she learn? ๐Ÿค”

The same thing that we learn at AnatomySCAPES: dissection lab experiences change how you touch and understand the tissues under your hands. This is why we do what we do. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

One massage therapist in the lab commented that she better understood "what is — and isn’t — in her hands when she works with clients."

Another developed a heightened sense of anatomy in 3D, re-assessing whether she could access her clients' psoas and quadratus lumborum with her hands.

We can learn so much from books, apps, and diagrams. Dissection is a much more complete way to understand the three-dimensional human body. We are so thankful that AnatomySCAPES gets to create similar dissection lab experiences for hands-on therapists.

And YOU can come join us! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ’ช

Check out our ๐Ÿ‘‰February 2024 Journey into the Matrix Dissection Lab workshop ๐Ÿ‘ˆ designed by and for hands-on therapists.
