From Research to Reality: Applying Research in Your Practice
Is research is relevant to your daily practice? Does it help you serve your massage clients more effectively? In this class, you’ll be presented with three client cases. Then you’ll join us on a mission. We’ll use online resources to find relevant research articles for each case, pick the strongest research articles, and then explore how these research findings might be immediately applied to your three clients. Then you get to return a verdict: Did your exploration of the research help improve your treatment and get a better client result or not?
