Massage therapy helping relationship – level 3
This course is an opportunity for the massage therapist to continue to reflect on the conduct of his helping work in a massage therapy context and to assess the progress of his field of action and the understanding of its boundaries. The student will be introduced to the influence of touch and neuropsychology, as well as the links between proprioception and emotions.
In addition, he will learn how to adapt his work in the case of specific diagnoses in place (anxiety, depression, suicidal state, etc.) and to recognize the attitudes to adopt in these circumstances. Finally, considering that the massage therapist will have to work more and more in an interdisciplinary framework, he will have to evaluate the basic helping relationship to adopt within the framework of massage therapy, to use a language common to all health professionals and finally to know when to refer his client to a healthcare professional. Different readings, case studies, real-life situations and discussions will enhance the course to broaden the emotional and technical skills of the massage therapist.
