"COVID-19–Related Complications" by Ruth Werner

Because the SARS-CoV-2 virus affects so many tissues in so many ways, and because its effects can be long-lasting, massage and bodywork clients who have had this infection—even those with mild versions—may bring with them some health concerns that are relevant to our decision-making process.

"Prenatal and Postpartum Massage Therapy During a Pandemic" by Carole Osborne

As data emerges regarding the effects of COVID-19 on pregnant people, the implications for MTs when they become our clients is ambiguous and incomplete. Staying informed is an ethical imperative.

"The Client Is Always Right . . . Really?" by Cal Cates and Kerry Jordan

Educating misinformed massage clients takes finesse and curiosity. Listening to what’s being said and readying yourself with a clear communication strategy are valuable skill sets.
