The goal of this course is to educate the massage therapist on the important role that cultural conditioning plays in the acceptance of massage therapy as a health discipline. The views on massage therapy held by different ethnic cultures in the United States will be presented here for the massage practitioner to study and use as a marketing tool and as a means of providing more sensitive treatment.
Upon completion of this home study continuing education course, the massage practitioner should be able to:
- Describe how culture can influence a client’s acceptance of massage therapy.
- Relate strategies for conducting culturally sensitive advertising.
