Injury is common among manual therapists, but it can be prevented. You will learn hands-on, practical techniques and tips to reduce fatigue and discomfort, prevent musculoskeletal injury, and extend your career. Attendees learn to reduce the physical demands of their work on their own bodies while still providing a thorough hands-on treatment to their clients. These innovative workshops are available for professionals and students. Combining lecture and discussion with fun, innovative activities and plenty of hands-on practice, the workshops are taught in an informal style that encourages active participation. Attendees come away from the workshop with an excellent overview of ergonomics and injury prevention principles, and a self-care action plan including changes they will make to their practice based on what they have learned.
*Each participant will receive a copy of our 300+ page Save Your Hands! 2nd Edition textbook, retail $62CAD.

She opened her first core educational facility in 2003 and noticed the high rate of injury and burnout among bodyworkers in the fast-growing massage therapy profession. She trained as a certified injury prevention instructor in 2010 and immediately began implementing the injury prevention techniques for new student therapists as a part of their core training at her Academy. Becky provides consultations to private facilities and schools, as well as personally conducting the CIPI program at Save Your Hands. She received thorough training from both Lauriann Greene and Rick Goggins (authors of the 2nd Edition Save Your Hands textbook) and continues to uphold the mission that her mentors started many decades ago. Becky is a member of both the ABMP and the AMTA, an allied member with Alliance for Massage Therapy Education and a supporter of the Massage Therapy Foundation.
