  • Assess upper trapezius, scalene, and sternocleidomastoid for trigger points
  • Biceps Belly Technique
  • Acromioclavicular joint technique
  • Deep tissue trigger points: posterior and anterior of lateral upper extremity
  • Assess scapula and glenohumeral junction trigger points
  • Work in between the long head biceps and the short head biceps looking for bumps in the road

    • Massage to relieve tension and improve function.
  • Extensor Digitorum
    • Can contribute to lateral epicondylitis.
    • Address muscle tightness and adhesions.
  • Supinator
    • Involved in forearm supination.
    • Release tightness to improve forearm mobility.


Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)

  • Flexor Carpi Radialis
    • Major muscle involved in golfer’s elbow.
    • Target for deep tissue massage and trigger point release.

  • Infraspinatus
    • Common site of trigger points and tension.

    • Address to improve shoulder mechanics.
  • Biceps Brachii (long head)
    • Can contribute to shoulder impingement.
    • Release tension to improve shoulder function.

Student Comments

“The Mastering Advanced Massage class was very informative. It focused on neck,TMJD and shoulder.

I myself have terrible shoulder pains. Mark used me as a model to demonstrate his technique on relieving shoulder pains. I had limited range of motion in my right shoulder. After he worked on my shoulder my range of motion improved dramatically.
