Advanced Massage Therapy
Clinical Assessment and Correction Specialization
The Advanced Massage Program: Clinical Assessment and Correction Specialization is designed for those students with the ability and intent to provide therapeutic (corrective) treatments for their clients.
At NIMT Inc. we believe that this area of training has been substandard in the industry for many years and results in graduates that use relaxation techniques for therapeutic treatments. The intent of our second year course is to correct this situation by the teaching proper assessment and correction techniques used specifically for therapeutic applications. All concepts taught in first year are reinforced and expanded upon, but the emphasis is now on assessment and corrective techniques for acute and chronic pain found in the soft tissues and associated structures of the body.
Exclusive Lensen™ training is now a major component of the Advanced Therapeutic Massage: Clinical Assessment and Correction curriculum. It provides our students with the most advanced therapeutic massage training available today.
ADVANCED MASSAGE THERAPY: CLINICAL ASSESSMENT AND CORRECTION
What is Lensen™?
The original version of Lensen™ is called Onsen. Onsen provides training in manual osteopathic techniques used to realign bones, joints and muscles. Traditionally Onsen has been taught by Len Balogh (school owner/ instructor) and others in three 2 day workshops. Len found that the workshop timeframe was inadequate for students to fully understand and utilize the techniques properly. With the permission of the Onsen originator Rich Phaigh, the material has been updated, revised and expanded. Lensen™ denotes the most current revision of the Onsen techniques.
Lensen™ is not offered in workshop format. It is provided exclusively to students attending the Advanced Therapeutic Massage program at the Northern Institute of Massage Therapy Inc. In Addition to receiving their Advanced Therapeutic Massage Program diploma, graduates also receive a Certified Lensen™ Therapist certificate.
