About The Event

Bodywork to Support Chest Binding Clients is designed to teach MT's a basic understanding of chest binding, impact on musculoskeletal system, proper intake with clients experiencing binding pain and draping techniques to mitigate chronic pain from binding. This course includes a community clinic in which clients who bind will receive free massage and give students opportunity for real world practice. This training is a valuable skillset for therapists wanting to serve transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming clients.
