Video Course: The World Skin Project

Annie Powell

How many times have you been in a session and spotted something that didn’t look quite right? Were you able to explain your concerns in an educated and confident manner while staying within your scope of practice? In the United States, the most common form of cancer is skin cancer and the survival rate for patients whose melanoma is detected early is over 97 percent. This workshop will teach the massage therapist to scan the skin, educate your client, and refer to a qualified dermatologist.
