  • UCT16MAdvanced massage therapy for the complementary therapist

    In this unit, you will build upon previous knowledge, skills and experience of massage therapy, with particular focus on using additional assessment techniques and advanced massage skills to address dysfunctional tissue, derived from lifestyle, posture and the general aging process.

    This unit will introduce the relevant skills, knowledge and understanding needed to gather and analyse information elicited during subjective and objective client assessments. This will include exploration of the factors that may predispose clients to imbalance and dysfunction and how factors may influence the clients ability or willingness to rebalance and reasons for referral/deferral. A number of objective assessment techniques are introduced to include detailed assessment of soft tissue and muscle testing. To underpin the new range of objective tests, the bony and soft structures of the major joints of the body are revisited to give you a greater anatomical understanding and to facilitate practical application.

    You will also evaluate the range of objective testing as to the appropriateness and value of the information they elicit. You will be able to utilise your new toolbox of skills and understanding to tailor your massage treatments to your individual client needs to promote restoration of dysfunctional tissue, health, balance and wellbeing.

    Assessed observations should not be carried out on the same day for the same learning outcome. There should be sufficient time between assessments for reflection and personal development. You need to meet the same standard on a regular and consistent basis. Separating the assessments by a period of at least two weeks is recommended as competence must be demonstrated on a consistent and regular basis.

    4. Range All ranges must be practically demonstrated or other forms of evidence produced to show they have been covered.

    5. Prerequisites You should hold a Level 3 massage and Level 3 antomy and physiology qualification. Your centre will have ensured that you have the required knowledge, understanding and skills to enrol and successfully achieve this qualification.

    6. Case studies You must carry out and document a minimum of 30 treatments on 15 clients, with a minimum of two treatments per client.

    7. Knowledge outcomes There must be evidence that you possess all the knowledge and understanding listed in the Knowledge section of this unit. In most cases this can be done by professional discussion and/or oral questioning. Other methods, such as projects, assignments and/or reflective accounts may also be used.

    8. Tutor/Assessor guidance You will be guided by your tutor/assessor on how to achieve learning outcomes and cover ranges in this unit. All outcomes and ranges must be achieved.

    UCT16M 3

    Evidence requirements

    1. Environment Evidence for this unit may be gathered within the workplace or realistic working environment (RWE).

    2. Simulation Simulation is not allowed in this unit.

    3. Observation outcomes Competent performance of Observation outcomes must be demonstrated on at least two occasions. Assessor observations, witness testimonies and products of work are likely to be the most appropriate sources of performance evidence. Professional discussion may be used as supplementary evidence for those criteria that do not naturally occur.

    Achieving observations and range

    UCT16M

    Achieving range

    The range section indicates what must be covered. Ranges should be practically demonstrated as part of an observation. Where this is not possible other forms of evidence may be produced. All ranges must be covered.

    Your assessor will document the portfolio reference once a range has been competently achieved.

    Your assessor will observe your performance of practical tasks. The minimum number of competent observations required is indicated in the Evidence requirements section of this unit.

    Criteria may not always naturally occur during a practical observation. In such instances you will be asked questions to demonstrate your competence in this area. Your assessor will document the criteria that have been achieved through professional discussion and/or oral questioning. This evidence will be recorded by your assessor in written form or by other appropriate means.

    Your assessor will sign off a learning outcome when all criteria have been competently achieved.
