Applying Research to Your Everyday Practice
The world of massage therapy research is exploding, and access to high quality research articles is easier than ever. But many massage therapists don't know where to find the evidence that can help them build their practice. And once they do find it, it can be challenging to figure out how to apply findings to build their skills. This webinar with Ruth Werner, president of the Massage Therapy Foundation, will discuss recent findings in massage therapy research – some funded by the Foundation, and some by other sources. We will discuss how to find the best information, and ways it can be applied to help your practice become more effective.
