HEMME APPROACH – Massage Educational Programs

HEMME Approach


Why not complete your continuing-education requirements by taking HEMME Approach home-study courses for massage therapists?

  • HEMME Approach from the very beginning, has specialized in state-of-the-art medical massage, and we have thousands of testimonials from massage therapists that indicate we are moving in the right direction.
  • HEMME Approach believes that providing high-quality education to massage therapists  is the best way to guarantee that the massage therapy profession will continue to evolve and prosper..
  • Dave Leflet holds a master of science degree from Michigan State University and is the author of HEMME Approach Publications, one of the largest and oldest producers of health-related home-study courses in the world. HEMME Approach Publications has been producing high-quality products for massage therapists at fair prices for more than 30 years.
  • The HEMME Approach series of courses is based on the principles and concepts Dave has learned through trial and error and research over countless years. Two of the main principles that have made HEMME Approach successful are (1) give people what they want or need, (2) make it easy for people to learn the steps necessary to provide quality professional care.
The HEMME Approach is state-of-the-art and cutting-edge soft-tissue therapy for massage therapists who practice clinical massage. The letters in HEMME stand for history, evaluation, modalities, manipulation, and exercise.
The key to the HEMME Approach is learning principles, not memorizing routines. By learning the basic principles behind soft-tissue therapy, competent massage therapists can develop their own methods and routines.
The principles in the HEMME Approach are taken from physical medicine, osteopathy, chiropractic, physical therapy, massage therapy, and years of clinical experience.
The HEMME Approach is by far the most powerful and comprehensive approach to soft-tissue therapy ever developed because of its ability to incorporate and use the best techniques found in other approaches to soft-tissue therapy. The HEMME Approach is dramatically effective and easy to learn.
Based on thousands of evaluations, this is what people like most about our home-study courses: The courses are easy to read, cost-effective, and filled with practical information. You can keep the manuals for reference after you finish the courses, and you can work at your own pace in the privacy of your own home. What people like most about our therapy courses is that we cover all four basic types of manipulation (trigger point therapy, neuromuscular therapy, connective tissue therapy, and range-of-motion stretching), not just one or two methods. We also provide outstanding service, Priority-Mail shipping, and a toll-free number.

The HEMME Approach to managing low back problems is the most intelligent and definitive text that I have had the privilege to review on patient management, evaluation, and follow-up care for those health care providers, including physicians, who treat common back pain. The acronym HEMME , referring to history, evaluation, modalities, manipulation, and exercise, is superior to the commonly used medical acronym SOAP (Subjective; Objective; Assessment; Plan). The documentation and bibliography are outstanding. Most important, HEMME , and the treatment outlined, are an exciting paradigm that works. As a clinical professor of human mechanics, it is an invaluable addition to my library as a reference source and as a method of teaching new physicians and therapists, evaluation, treatment, prevention, and patient management.”
