Everything about massage in water is different to massage on a table. Get faster and more profound results. Highly indicated for clients with arthritis and reduced mobility, edema, muscle tension, holding patterns and stress!

You don't need a swimming pool to benefit from taking this course. You'll be amazed at how much your treatments change once you've experienced massage therapy in a reduced gravity environment. And a swimming pool in Vegas is a lot closer and warmer than the space station.

Change the way you touch your clients!

Treatment Tutorials

A series of independent 1-day workshops reviewing treatment of the knee, shoulder, neck and pelvis. Use the full range of tools at the disposal of an RMT to get the best results from your treatments: assessment, fascial technique, joint play, stretches and remedial exercise. Make the most of these skills to supplement your Swedish technique and getter better results while reducing wear and tear on your body.

Learn how to read to visual clues that tell you where to treat - other than where the client's pain is. And how to make that treatment all about what the problem really is.

Fact: clients who feel better faster will refer more new clients to you.

Please Note: I teach my practical workshops in small groups which ensures lots of 1-on-1 attention, but also means they sell out fast.

ALSO: there is some overlap of material between my Assessment Review course and the Treatment Tutorials. The reason to take both Assessment and any of the Tutorials would be greater detail of the Assessment portions.

HIV & the RMT (5 CEUs Cat. A)
What to ask, and what the answers mean.

Sooner or later (if it hasn't happened already) a client is going to tick the HIV box on your case history form. It might be a tough subject for both the client and the RMT, but it needn't be.

HIV is simple to understand and address, so wouldn't you like to be comfortable with the material? Learn terminology, and explore the issues, both from a treatment perspective and an empathetic one.

A 1-day Q&A workshop that will help you talk professionally and intelligently to your clients about HIV and AIDS.

Due to the specialized nature of this subject matter, I hold this workshop when I get sufficient interest and requests, rather than scheduling specific dates. Please let me know if you and/or colleagues would like to create a learning tutorial on this topic.
