June's CE Highlights: Massage Therapist Self-Care and Client Activities

With the combination of many COVID-19 restrictions being lifted and the weather becoming warmer, clients are more likely to be participating in activities that may result in needing some extra care.

An increase in care for clients cannot come without an increase in care for ourselves. Last month during Mental Health Awareness Month, we focused on mental well-being and self-care. This month we want to emphasize the importance of physical self-care. June’s CE highlights will help you be prepared for your clients’ extra needs as well as your own!
