So you want to learn more about the needs of trans and gender diverse folks? You've come to the right place.
This is a course designed by a trans person (me!) to introduce and deepen LMT’s understanding of the needs in our transgender and gender diverse communities. This course is for current LMT’s, students who are learning advanced techniques, and educators of future massage therapists. Through didactic presentation, discussion, and hands on practice, this course will enhance one’s ability to work with this population and to guide instructors on the needs of trans students.
