Monday – 7 Live CE Hours
- 9AM – 1PM – Rhythm and Movement with Zan Valliant – 4 CE hours
Persuading clients to relax gets much easier when rhythm is incorporated into one’s technique. Zan Valliant has been practicing for 45 years during which time she has developed her own style of manipulating muscles and problem solving. This class focuses on becoming at ease using movement to gain the cooperation of the client. Attention will be on neck and shoulder techniques as well as hips.

- 2PM – 5PM – Ethics, Boundary Bloopers and Sticky Situations with Gael Wood – 3 CE hours
As massage therapists, we come across a variety of requests from clients, client behaviors, communication challenges, and sticky situations. In this class, we will discuss and role play handling a variety of ethical challenges using the NCBTMB code of ethics as a guide.
Next, we will check in on boundary issues using the survey “Discovering Your Boundary Issues” from The Ethics of Touch by Ben E. Benjamin, PhD and Cherie Shonen-Moe. We will discuss our findings and ways to improve our awareness of client/therapist boundaries to avoid inadvertent slips into unethical behavior.
