This session is inspired by five common myths about massage therapy by Tracey Walton. Understanding the public’s use of misinformation, massage therapists have an ethical obligation to only share truthful and complete information. We look at what constitutes research and how can we let go of the hueristics that hold us back from gathering the right data to give to the public. 


When you finish this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the dangers of misinformation;
  • Explain the different levels of evidence in research;
  • Construct the proper vernacular for speaking with the public about massage therapy topics;
  • Discuss the different types of hueristics;
  • Apply the learned applications with clients and peers.
