Personal Space & Personal Boundaries in an Ethical Massage Practice
A Continuing Education Course by Anne Williams and Eric Brown
These days, everywhere you look, people are talking about boundaries. Oprah is talking about boundaries. Brene Brown is talking about boundaries, and so are a lot of psychologists. Why?
Because healthy boundaries are at the heart of healthy relationships with friends, family, and work colleagues. In therapeutic relationships between massage professionals and clients, healthy boundaries are essential for practicing ethical massage therapy.
Most of us want to take charge of our lives, master our emotional responses, and stop people-pleasing. Most of us want to respond effectively to challenging people. Most of us want to be mentally strong, free ourselves from self-doubt, and open ourselves to the right people to form meaningful personal and professional relationships.
Owning our lives and practicing the highest standard of ethical massage begins at the same place – with healthy personal boundaries. In this course, we’ll take our first steps. No limits! Only boundaries!
This four-hour CE course features thirteen 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.
