This class will discuss five events which can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In this course you will learn the potential legal responsibilities of a licensed massage therapist (LMT) when providing a massage for someone with PTSD.

We will delve into the part a massage session can play in bringing the client with PTSD back to a wholeness in their mind and body.
