The Shoulder is an hybrid course (2 live online classes + a full 1-day practical workshop) where we explore what a Modern hands on approach for Shoulder Pain looks like in clinic. We will learn an evidence-informed approach to the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of shoulder pain which reflects the enormous paradigm shift that is taking place in the field of manual therapy, where evidence is telling us that what we ‘knew’ just a decade ago is no longer useful and, in fact, in some instances it may be considered dangerous.

Course format

  • Two live online evening classes
  • 1-day practical workshop

The online sessions will provide the underpinning knowledge of current understanding of shoulder pain, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation. These sessions will be fully interactive to facilitate learning which can then be implemented  when we come together for a full day, in-person, hands-on workshop.

Course content will include:

  • An introduction to pain science
  • An overview of current evidence around shoulder pain diagnosis
  • An exploration of different shoulder-specific tests and their reliability
  • A step-by-step approach to assessing shoulder pain
  • Soft tissue approaches for shoulder treatment, including Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
  • Mobilisation and manual therapy techniques to improve shoulder range of motion (ROM)
  • Rehabilitation programmes covering all the stages of injury, including how to facilitate
    adherence

Anna Maria Mazzieri

Anna Maria identifies herself as a Soft Tissue Therapist as she feels that title best represents
the wider approach to care provided by a Modern Massage Therapist.
Professionally trained in Massage Therapy in 2002, continued through a vocational qualifications pathway to the Diploma in Clinical Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy but also obtained a a degree in BSc (Hons) in Sports Therapy which further reinforced her beliefs in supporting vocational qualifications in the field of Massage, Manual and Movement approaches for client care. As a result she has established and still is the lead tutor for The ST School which is a well-
regarded training provider delivering the Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy (BTEC level 5) in Exeter, Bristol and Birmingham, as well as hosting a rich program of CPDs.

Through her clinics, schools and wider involvement in the industry she is driving a change in Massage and Soft Tissue Therapy by pushing for better understanding and inclusion of Evidence Based Practice in vocational qualifications and champions the role of Touch and Manual Therapy as part of modern healthcare.

To that end she is also a voice behind The Massage Matters podcast which she co-founded to help Massage and Manual Therapists of all levels to better understand, celebrate and apply a more evidence informed, holistic and modern approach to client care.

Widely recognised as an expert in her field, Anna Maria has the privilege to be part of ForceNet, an international group of highly respected researchers,  academics and clinicians aimed at bridging the knowledge gap between research findings and clinical practice.

Very much committed to clinical practice still, she draws from that knowledge spanning two decades to translate theory and research into clinically applicable strategies.

Well known for her italian flair, Anna Maria’s delivery is fun, expressive, and passionate, facilitating interaction and discussion of ideas while providing a solid focus on what that knowledge may look like when in front of the client.

Why teaching The Shoulder?

As a practitioner Anna Maria has been particularly interested in the complexities of shoulder pain and over the years has extensively researched the topic and attended many courses run by specialists in the subjects. Her approach to treatment sees the integration of massage and movement approaches with psychologically informed concepts.
