PODCAST Episode 7: Responsibilities, Communication Skills and Interpersonal Challenges for RMTs
“We connect with our clients physiologically, yet our touch is interpreted psychologically.” Talking Body, Listening Hands: A Guide to the Massage Therapeutic Relationships prompts a discussion of communication and ethical challenges associated with massage therapy practice. In this podcast we explore professional responsibilities, communication skills, and interpersonal challenges that massage therapists face day to day. How does the Code of Ethics frame Scope of Practice in assisting the practitioner in complicated decision making? How do we build a “working alliance” with clients? What is a “touch-triggered” response? How can we effectively set boundaries? This and more as we consider all that happens in the therapeutic encounter.
