Approach

S.E.E.M was originally used in the ares of sports massage, but has moved into all areas of massage therapy. By learning how to “feel the body” the therapist then applies various stretching, facial and deep tissue releases which will remove adhesions, repair tissue and joint disfunctions, and will provide the client with increased range of motion, healing and decreased pain. An injury or blockage that may have taken months to heal can, many times, be removed in less than an hour. S.E.E.M. can be adapted to use on any clients and will be the new wave of success in medical massage therapy.
