This course offered basic and pertinent information about PTSD, which will be very useful in my practice. I will be using what I learned and I feel more confident and equipped to respond positively to clients who respond to touch with symptoms that could indicate PTSD. Good information!
Vickie Sweeney, LMT, CA
As a Licensed Massage Therapist who also suffers from PTSD I found this material to be not only helpful to my clients but also for myself. Highly recommend this course for anyone who not only wants to help their clients but also their own personal journey.
Carroll Ruiz, LMT
This course has been especially rewarding considering the high occurrence of events resulting in PTSD to date. I feel I have more resources to help heal those suffering from PTSD after taking this course. Thank you for offering it!
Jenae Kelly, LMT, NCTMB
Great course I learned more about ptsd and ways to better the massage session with clients who may suffer from it. I also learned of other methods that are non-intrusive bodywork. i would like more information on ptsd.
Kimberly Shaw, LMBT
I really enjoyed this class. I had wanted to take it for quite some time and am glad I finally did. I learned a lot of information regarding PTSD that I didn't know before. I know this information will help me to serve this special population with better skills now that I have taken this class. I am also a massage therapy instructor. One of the classes I teach is Pathology. We touch on PTSD as one of the mental diseases/disorders that students can encounter, but this information is paramount to what I teach in class. I have told all of my students about that class. Thank you for putting out quality continuing education material!
