Why Integrative Clinical Massage?
Integrative Clinical Massage is a unified combination of the best evidence-based, medically-focused, manual therapy from both the Eastern and Western massage and bodywork traditions.
At Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, we combine and unite modern, Western clinical massage techniques such as trigger point work & neuromuscular techniques, fascial techniques, and joint mobilizations with thousands-year-old, Eastern medical massage modalities such as clinically-focused shiatsu, Thai bodywork, and tui na (medical massage).
Learn to evaluate, assess and specifically address each client’s unique complaints. Go beyond simple pain relief and musculoskeletal complaints through the integration of our various holistic, Eastern medical modalities. Deepen your clinical practice and effectively balance all the various systems of the clients’ body and chief complaints through our clinical manual therapy programs.
The certificate program is ideal for students looking to prepare quickly for employment in massage therapy, providing the student with the massage therapy and Asian bodywork training required to achieve national and state certification in a little more than half the time of the AS or AAS program.
