$5 CE: “Taking the Danger Out of Endangerment Sites” with Ruth Werner

This month through November 30, anyone in the massage and bodywork profession can watch and earn CE for “Taking the Danger Out of Endangerment Sites” with Ruth Werner at a discounted rate of $5! ABMP members can watch the course and earn free CE any time.

An endangerment site doesn’t necessarily mean “don’t touch,” but it does mean “touch with special care and knowledge.” Unfortunately, although massage is generally safe, medical and legal records show many cases where clients have been injured, often by well-meaning, but under-educated massage therapists. We can minimize that risk by knowing where certain tissues are most vulnerable to damage, and how to accommodate our touch to be safe in those areas. Join award-winning educator Ruth Werner for a deep dive into this topic as she draws on her client’s body to illustrate the boundaries and structures of endangerment sites in eight areas of the body. Your clients will thank you!
