Public Speaking for Massage @ NHI Santa Ana

Event Summary
The pandemic has changed how massage therapists need to reconnect with their clients–the spoken word is more important than ever. The need is great to provide safety education, verbal reassurance or to educate your clients about changes you have made in your practice. In this NCBTMB-Approved 10-hour class, we will cover a variety of scenarios for public speaking skills online or in person. We will address fears of public speaking; receive feedback on technique and learn marketing strategies for your massage practice.
