This webinar will explore the theme of death and what it means for massage therapists working with clients in end of life and palliative care scenarios. 
Some day all of us are going to be faced with our own mortality, and yet so many of us refuse to acknowledge or talk about it until we are either dealing with our own impending death or that of someone we love.  
Wouldn't it make sense, especially as massage therapists, to have some knowledge of this topic and to consider our own feelings towards death? 
In this one-hour webinar, we look at how we can come to terms with death and dying and how we can use this knowledge to help us live our best possible life, knowing that one day it will be over.
