ETHICS – CREATING EMOTIONAL BOUNDARIES THRU TOUCH - 3 CEU $95.00 4 CEU $110.00

Touch is a powerful and intimate form of connection. When touch is a positive experience it creates a deeper level of trust and open communication between the (massage) practitioner and the client. Issues may arise in the client/practitioner relationship precisely because of the closeness and trust required in this work. The boundary between private and professional life can become grey. Clients may share personal experiences. When a client talks about personal issues, a practitioner who is unclear about his/her role can get caught up in the drama of the client’s life. A practitioner may get drawn into providing the kind of support that a friend or professional counselor would offer. How can a practitioner redirect the client so the work can proceed without blurred boundaries, upset and drama? How can practitioners navigate through this difficult and confusing situation common in professional practice? There are set boundaries to help practitioners manage their feelings and emotions as well as the feelings and emotions of their clients. Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions and redirect the emotions of one’s clients. This workshop examines how to use one’s emotional intelligence to navigate through these common, everyday issues.

ETHICS - DRAPING : COVERS MORE TERRITORY THAN YOU THINK 2 CEU $65.00

In the certified massage schools we attended, learning how to drape clients appropriately was a basic part of our initial training.

Due to draping clients all day long in our practices as massage therapists, it has become second nature to most of us. We know the importance of appropriately draping a client when giving a massage.
The focus of this workshop is to hone draping skills as a medium for managing and resolving the uncomfortable and unpredictable situations that can occur during a massage.

In addition to reviewing and sharing draping tips with one another, this workshop demonstrates how combining draping with verbal communication can effectively address some of the difficult issues that show up in our practices.
