Why Massage Therapists are Heading to the Dissection LabDec 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? 🤔
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. 👍👍
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! 🎉💪
