Every time JoAnn Kovaly teaches a class about treating pain in a specific area, she always hears “I wish you had a class for the ___ area too!” So that’s what she’s decided to do: offer a series on “Annihilating Pain” — starting with this class about pain in general, and following up with five subsequent classes addressing fascia, core, knees, cervical area, and shoulders (details below).

Part 1: What is Pain… Exactly?

Much of what we do as massage therapists focuses in the treatment of pain. But do we really understand what “pain” is, and how to explain it to our clients?

In this first part of a six part series focused on pain and pain treatment, JoAnn is going to share some fascinating facts about neurology, and how the brain determines what the pain experience is—information that is guaranteed to intrigue you. Come prepared to voice your questions about pain, and gain all sorts of new, hands-on ligament stimulation techniques that will enable you to gently treat your client’s painful areas.

Please Bring the Following to Class:

  • 1 set of sheets to be used while you are on the massage table
  • Face cradle cover
  • Blanket
  • Massage emollient
  • Paper and pen for note-taking
  • Wear clothes you can move easily in
