Webinar: Bodywork Techniques for Parkinson's

Margie Schaeffer

This webinar was filmed on location at the 2016 World Massage Festival.

This webinar will familiarize the massage therapist with the medical condition of Parkinson’s disease, which is becoming more and more common as baby boomers become the largest segment of the American population. You’ll learn about the pathophysiology of the condition, learn about treatment modifications and adaptations, and see a demonstration of a massage done on a Parkinson’s client.
