August 7, 2017: (Oro Valley) Massage Therapy for Clients who are diagnosed with Eating Disorders
Eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating are not a choice. They are serious mental illnesses which can have devastating impacts. Eating Disorders affect up to 30 million Americans and 70 million individuals worldwide. Did you know that 1 in 5 women struggle with an eating disorder or disordered eating? Also, middle-aged women are the fastest growing segment of the population being diagnosed with eating disorders. This course provides a clinical definition and diagnostics of this mental illness, along with what warning signs to be aware of. We will also look at benefits and contraindications when working with this special population. Last, we will refresh on scope of practice and boundaries so that you may provide therapeutic massage within your professional parameters. I am extremely grateful to have been able to work with, Dr. Cynthia Edwards-Hawver Psy.D, specialist in the eating disorders field whom I have had the pleasure in co-developing this advanced level course for the massage and bodywork field. Your tuition includes our co-authored manual; Working with Eating Disorders as a Massage Therapist.
