Our veterinary massage courses teach you the science behind myofascial palpation and medical massage. As a veterinary practitioner, you need to be equipped on how to both diagnose and treat problems found in your patient’s soft tissues. With instruction from Dr. Narda Robinson, you will learn effective palpating to address issues like pain and myofascial dysfunction. Students come away with a greater knowledge of the scientific effectiveness provided by massage. We discuss how to employ medical massage to treat everything from pain and fatigue to digestive problems, immune dysfunction, and a number of other conditions. Are you a licensed veterinarian or someone holding an equivalent credential who is passionate about seeing non-pharmaceutical and non-surgical treatments like manual therapy hold a forefront position in our medical practices? We’d love for you to get started with one of CuraCore’s scientific courses or workshops on medical massage.

Our two-day hands-on workshop helps you develop “thinking fingers” to perform informed palpation of your patients, especially of the myofascial system. This will allow you to bolster your patients’ intrinsic self-healing capacity, involving neurologic, cardiovascular, digestive, immunologic and homeostatic physiologic networks.Read More
Medical Massage Program
Medical massage incorporates several methods of hands-on, low-force techniques that target restrictions and pain mostly in the soft tissues of the body. It improves quality of life, controls post-operative or post-procedural pain and stress, and supports mobility as well as functional recovery after injury, trauma, or surgery.
Research from many medical disciplines, including osteopathic medicine, affirm the scientific effectiveness of integrative approaches like myofascial palpation & massage. It has been proven to treat pain, digestive problems, immune dysfunction, fatigue, and a variety of other conditions.
CuraCore’s course teaches you about the ways in which structure and function interrelate and express their connection in both health and disease.
Prior to the workshop, reading the book Canine Medical Massage – Techniques and Clinical Applications and completing all of the online assessments, is a requirement.
