Whitney Lowe’s core training is the Orthopedic Massage program. This remarkable and innovative training has created exemplary therapists across the United States and abroad for over a decade.
Lowe started his advanced training program over 30 years ago in the workshop format. However, both he and his students felt that they wanted a more comprehensive training – one that gave practitioners understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics, and critical thinking that goes into providing pain and injury treatment with massage. Practitioners also wanted more time with Lowe, to learn from him, to ask questions, and get deeper into the content than can be done in a workshop.
Lowe spent over 10 years perfecting the online program before initiating it. He spent significant time studying and training in online education and technology in order to offer his students the very best education possible. After consulting and surveying his students, he came up with the core content and the Online Orthopedic Massage Program was founded.
Today, this program is at the core of the Clinical Rehabilitative Massage (CRM) Specialty Certificate. This certificate offers a national credential to those working in pain and injury or medical massage.
If you have chosen to complete either the CRM Specialty Certificate or the Orthopedic Massage Online Certificate, you will be taking this core curriculum.
The CRM Specialty Certificate also requires 2 hands-on workshops.
