Are you causing client's pain in an effort to relieve their soreness? Clients can feel discomfort not only during deep tissue massage, but also soreness afterward - and it isn't always a "good pain.".

Brad Drummer's Pulse Wave Massage, is a profoundly deep massage that does not cause pain or bruising. This technique is based upon his theories on Delta Wave relaxation, which is the state in which nearly all physical, emotional, and nervous system healing takes place. Pulse Wave Massage allows for deep work that actually penetrates deeper than traditional techniques without causing pain and triggering the client's defensive reflex.

Pulse Wave massage uses pulsating pressure in place of held pressure or deep fiber friction, with the intent of bringing pleasure to the tissue. In creating this new approach to deep tissue massage, you can achieve profound depths without pain/contraindications/damage to either yourself or your client.

Reach greater depths - A pulse wave penetrates deeper than held pressure as it continues into the tissue far beyond the last point of therapist contact – often throughout the entire body.

Reduce stress levels and enhance pain management - The Pulse Wave doesn't create a pattern of fear triggering the body's defensive response . The trust inducing pulse reduces stress and allows for the possibility of achieving the Delta Wave threshold and all the healing benefits associated with this state of relaxation.

Collateral tissue relaxation - Even deep techniques that cause low to moderate pain create tension that accumulates in the surrounding tissue, building with each occurrence of pain. With Pulse Wave technique, not only is the collateral tension eliminated, but there is also a beneficial collateral massaging effect to the surrounding tissue as the waves of force travel far beyond the pulsating point of pressure.

Through this video and text-based course, we will:

  • Explain the history behind the Pulse Wave Massage and why this methodology is important
  • Be introduced to the Delta Wave philosophy to understand the healing aspects it provides
  • Define specific terms and concepts important to Pulse Wave success 
  • Approach and interact with clients through massage via universal physical components
  • Compare pain/fear vs. pleasure/trust approaches, understanding how each impacts the client
  • Observe and perform Pulse Wave Massage strokes using proper body mechanics and structure your own Pulse Wave Massage therapy session
  • Explore how one might incorporate the Pulse Wave approach into existing techniques to make them safer and more effective

If you could create a massage that doesn't cause pain, but instead relieves the pain your client is experiencing and providing relaxation while achieving greater depths than traditional deep techniques, wouldn't you want to use it?
