Do you hate the diaper draping but have never learned a better way?
I hate it when therapists do this to me and it makes me cringe when I see people doing it in the classes I teach. If you have a heavy leg this is not nice on your body to do. And besides most clients hate it.
I will teach you alternate ways to drape the whole body than most therapists have been taught in the past 12-15 years.
Easy, fast and still provide lots of secure coverage.
What to expect
If you have been in any of my classes you will know that I practice what I preach and that while you are working I will tweak your posture repeatedly so that it sinks in and starts to change.
You are going to be shown some tricks for working that make it easier on your body, and you will be massaging each other to put that into practice.
As always, any questions around marketing and general practice are also welcome during the class. You are welcome to pick my brain.

When you purchase the course you will get access to the video recording from the May 2016 class. I recommend that you set aside some time to go over the video with someone to practice on at the same time so that you can feel the techniques in your body.
All CEU’s are calculated the same way. You will log the time you spend watching, practicing and reviewing the material. Then you record 1 CEU for every 2 hours you spend.
For example if you spend a total of 8 hours with this material then you will log 4 CEU’s in Category A – Massage Therapy Application.
