Video Course: From Research to Reality: Applying Research in Your Practice

Douglas Nelson

Is research relevant to your daily practice? Does it help you serve your massage clients more effectively? In this presentation, you’ll be presented with three client cases. Then, you’ll join us on a mission. We’ll use online resources to find relevant research articles for each case, pick the strongest research articles, and then explore how these research findings may be immediately applied to your three clients. Then, you get to return a verdict: did your exploration of the research help improve your treatment and get a better client result or not?
