Preventing work-related injury is an important subject for massage therapists’ career longevity. With 77% of therapists experiencing symptoms or injury during their careers, therapists need accurate information to help them stay healthy while working. Much good information is available on self-care, but there are also some myths that can mislead therapists and keep them from applying the effective methods they need to protect their health and careers. In this Webinar, Richard W. Goggins, CPE, LMP and Lauriann Greene, CEAS present the most common myths about self-care and refute them using up-to-date, evidence-based information that therapists can rely on to save their hands, backs, necks and shoulders throughout a long, healthy career.
