However, after 11 years of private practice as an LMT, one thing I know for sure is that my massage therapy training did not prepare me to work with clients who have trauma.
Before writing this article I took a poll Skils LMT colleagues to ask what they learned about trauma during their massage school experience and this quote captures the essence of what so many shared:. An introduction would have been great. What follows is an overview of trauma and the role of massage therapy mawsage addressing it, in an article that includes information about practitioner presence, consent and scope of practice.

Here are four important elements of practice that can begin to support creating a trauma-informed practice for your clients: My massage school taught me how to give a thorough massage, but did not emphasize what it means and takes to stay present during that massage. Presence is the embodied and dynamic capacity to be attentive to our clients and their treatment goals, and attuned to what they say and what their body is telling us.
