Massage Therapy and the Transgender Client
Everyone deserves the same quality of health care. Massage Therapists have a chance to make a difference. Not only can we help to reduce some of the physical and emotional stress that many transgender people face, we can also work together to create an environment that is comfortable, welcoming, and nurturing to all people. Awareness of transgender issues is coming to the forefront every day, in pop culture and in media, in real life, and in health care, too. The New York Times recently reported that the transgender population has doubled (to nearly 1.4 million adults) since 2011. Greater numbers of people identifying as transgender are seeking out health care, yet healthcare providers are challenged to provide equal and unbiased care to their transgender patients. It is the goal of this workshop to provide Massage Therapists and Integrative Bodywork professionals the training to meet the needs of transgender clients and to create a practice that is LGBTQ/Transgender friendly and safe.

Class will be held from 10.00 am-5.00 pm
Cupping is a technique traditionally used in Eastern modalities (like acupuncture) to produce more effective circulation in areas of the body where there is pain and stiffness. The practitioner creates a vacuum in a cup and then places the cup on the skin of the client. The vacuum makes the cup stay in place on the skin and thereby improves local circulation. With new technology we as massage therapists have adapted this technique by using silicone cups and combining the suction with massage strokes. The end result is increased circulation, increased ROM and less pain. In short, an extra tool for the therapist, and relief for our clients. In this 2 day course we will learn how to use the cups in general, focus on some injuries, and do a facial cupping massage.

You will return to your practice with new, easy-on-your-hands skills, and an excellent background for further craniosacral training. One of the great things about CST is that it is non-invasive and works with the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
