Personal Space & Personal Boundaries in an Ethical Massage Practice
A Continuing Education Course by Anne Williams and Eric Brown
In this course, we meet Kayla who is struggling to maintain a healthy therapeutic relationship with her client, Alice. Kayla has difficulty establishing and maintaining her boundaries and her clients often take advantage of this fact.
With an in-depth look at the natural human instincts, needs, wants and expectations that drive our desire for personal space, we’ll come to understand our boundaries better and identify why people cross into our personal space. Understanding our own boundaries, helps us attuned to client boundaries and untangle the complex dynamics that often cause us to feel confused or drained at the end of the massage workday.
Video presentations, interactive features, learning activities, and a discussion with seasoned massage professionals keeps this content fresh, fun, and engaging. What we learn about ourselves, will positively shift both our personal and professional relationships.
