An Introduction to working with Runners for Massage Practitioners

2 Hour Seminar with Susie Baker, Technique First
Running Technique Instructor and Alexander Technique practitioner

Runners love getting massages. It’s not just that it feels great. They swear by its benefits to speed recovery and reduce muscle soreness. The good news is that there are more and more runners out there and this seminar will give you practical knowledge to enhance your skills for working with runners.

We will look at how runners run, with reference to some of the common injuries and niggles which are likely to be caused by poor technique. The more you understand about what runners get up to, the more effectively you’ll be able to tailor your approach to their needs. It’s a great way to develop a loyal client base. And if you’re  already a runner yourself, you may discover some new insights.

In the first part there will be a presentation to highlight common problems which you are likely to encounter in your work. Questions are actively encouraged for shared learning.

In the second part, we’ll go outside to explore the elements of running. If you are unable or prefer not to take part, much can be learnt through observation. It won’t be a jog around the block. Just some simple demonstrations over a distance of no more than 20 metres. Ideally bring some running shoes with you. Barefoot is also an option for anyone who is keen to give it a go.
