About This Class

When we massage, we move the toxins from the tissues. That is of course why we recommend that people should drink water after a massage. That is why there are thousands of websites stating that we should do it. Except there is only one problem. It is a complete myth.

What if I was to tell you that there was a study done where they did arthroscopic knee surgery on two groups of people with cartilage tears. Arthroscopic surgery on the meniscus is the most common orthopedic procedure in the United States, performed about 700,000 times a year at an estimated cost of $4 billion in the USA. Let's take a look at a fascinating study where both groups had cartilage tears and a year later, most patients in both groups said their knees felt better.  The only problems are, one group received FAKE surgery! 

Welcome to my course.

In this course, you will learn what the research says about treatments and common myths debunked.

What is the best thing to do for back pain?

Here you will learn fact from fiction.

Does alkaline water really do anything? And if so, what?

Is back surgery really effective? What does the research tell us about spinal fusion. What are orthopaedic surgeons recommending about spinal fusions after seeing the success rates?

Come on a fascinating journey and become more informed as a massage therapist and also for your own general knowledge.

Let's get started!
