Native American Back Massage

Course Goals:

Native American medicine refers to the combined practices of over 500 individual tribes. Although specific practices varied amongst individual tribes all Native American medicine is based on the understanding that health is a matter of balance.

Native Americans have used heat and massage with herbs to treat many problems. Tribes such as the Cherokee used massage to treat their warriors before and after expeditions, as well as, using massage to help with labour pains and colic in children.

Native American Back Massage can be easily integrated into an existing massage routine or performed as a treatment in it’s own right.
