New Deep-Tissue Massage Webinar from Eric Stephenson with Free CE

"Intelligent Deep-Tissue Massage, Part 1: Body Mechanics" with Eric Stephenson is the newest webinar in the ABMP Education Center at www.abmp.com/members/continuing-education/online-learning/courses/webinar-intelligent-deep-tissue-massage-part-1-body-mechanics.

This course is our first webinar with Eric Stephenson, who creates continuing education focused on career longevity for massage schools, spas, and professional organizations, and specializes in teaching deep-tissue massage that doesn't harm the therapist or the client.  

“Intelligent Deep-Tissue Massage, Part 1: Body Mechanics” teaches therapists of all experience levels a safe and effective approach for optimal body mechanics when performing Intelligent Deep-Tissue Massage. It will enable the therapist to work comfortably using standing and seated postures to perform a therapeutic massage without using unnecessary resources and potentially injuring themselves.

The purpose of the class is to introduce simple postures, movements, and approaches a therapist may employ to extend their career and avoid injury and burnout.

There are 125+ on-demand massage and bodywork webinars in the ABMP Education Center at www.abmp.com/ce, and ABMP members can earn free CE by completing a short quiz.
