New Software Program Helps with Massage Therapy Classes

A Tennessee massage therapy school is adding a new tool to massage therapy classes in the lineup of courses available to registered students this year.

The Tennessee School of Therapeutic Massage is adding a new kinesiology-based software program (muscle and motion) to the list of class offerings at the school in 2012.

The Muscle and Motion software program allows students and professionals to see how the body’s muscles move, rest, and become injured through visual illustrations that are not typically available to most massage therapy students. The software should make it much easier for students at the massage therapy school to understand and execute massage therapy techniques based on how the muscles naturally move and how the art of massage impacts muscle groups.

The program is provided as part of a special offer to professors and instructors of massage therapy schools and other education institutions. It is described as a “dynamic visual resource that makes musculoskeletal anatomy and kinesiology easier to learn, remember and understand” by the company that manufactures the program. Massage therapy students can see the human form as it moves through a full range of motions and includes instruction in how the brain processes muscle movement. Massage therapy schools interested in the program can visit the website and preview the program through a library of over 2,000 animations taken from the program.

The Tennessee School of Therapeutic Massage is located in Knoxville, TN and offers a full range of massage therapy classes in a 6,000 square foot facility. The school is dedicated to the art of massage and boasts a full state-of-the-art facility that utilizes the latest in technology to promote comprehensive understanding of the healing art of massage. Students at the massage therapy school can learn everything from massage therapy to reflexology and professionals can sign up for one of the school’s many continuing education classes.
