Balancing the Art & Science of Massage is a two-part webinar series for massage therapists, discussing how science is changing the way we should be practicing massage.

We start by exploring what we can learn from science and looking at what science can tell us about people in pain, this opens the door to a new understanding about how massage can help those in need.

If you have ever been baffled about how to navigate the wonderful world of science and how this applies to massage, these webinars will guide you in the right direction. You will discover the importance of understanding and aligning knowledge with the intuitive approach that is intrinsic to massage therapists. These webinars are created to inspire you to think outside of the square!
