Healthy Professional Boundaries in an Ethical Massage Practice
A 4-Hour NCBTMB-Approved Continuing Education Course by Anne Williams and Eric Brown
Have you ever ended a workday at your massage business and felt so drained you wondered if this is the right profession for you? Have you ever said goodbye to a client and wished they never booked with you again?
This feeling of chronic exhaustion is not a symptom of poor hands-on skills. Your massage skills are solid. Instead of signing up for another technique workshop, pay more attention to how you establish your professional boundaries, respond to boundary violations, and maintain professional boundaries as your relationships with clients evolve.
In this course, we’ll unravel complex client-therapist scenarios and use behaviors and language that keep sessions on track, even when clients misbehave. Dispiriting workdays will be a thing of the past as we again derive satisfaction from the excellent work we do in a profession we love.
This four-hour CE course features ten video presentations, text enhanced with pictures, diagrams, tables, listen-along audio, learning games, interviews with professional therapists, and downloadable resources. You can translate the material with a click into any language and access your course on a computer, laptop, tablet, or phone for on-the-go study.
Participants must complete Course 01: Personal Space & Personal Boundaries in an Ethical Massage Practice and Course 02: Essential Boundary Skills in an Ethical Massage Practice before they begin this course.
