Do you want to change your career and become a soft tissue therapist with NLSSM? 

But don't have the necessary background?

Are you a visual learner? Do you learn best by repetition? 


NLSSM has designed this course for students who have no prior learning in anatomy & physiology but would like to embark on a course at the highest level without having to do unnecessary courses to start in a new career.  Our focus is to deliver in depth information that supports your learning needs as a soft tissue therapist, making it real, relevant and suitable to the job at hand.  We will be discussing the potential impact of soft tissue work and its' relationship to the healing cycle using specific diseases or soft tissue conditions to evaluate these effects. We will also consider the interrelated effects of one system to another and compare how dysfunction within one system can affect other systems. We will take your hands on a visual journey, palpating the digestive system, landmarking where you will find relevant structures making it a real life experience.  This course is for students who plan to work at the highest level.
