Research Literacy

Research Literacy is very important for professional massage and bodywork profession, it is what keeps the profession effective and gives up to date information in order to gain momentum to succeed as a valid complementary health practice.

How do we improve the efficiency of the professional massage and body work profession as a whole?

Well, one sure way is through valid research!  Case studies have also been proven to be a great way to gain insight into how effective massage therapy is.

Recently I wrote a case study about the effects of Paediatric Massage Therapy with A Child Experiencing Separation Anxiety.  There are literally hundreds of amazing articles available for reading online.  It is vital to the massage therapy profession to continue to add to the body of knowledge and to continue to regulate the profession so that ethics, policies and values are implemented and the profession continues to maintain and foster a high moral standard.
