2017 Goals and Talks

Richard Lebert, RMT

Wanting to move past my fear of public speaking, I booked five speaking engagements for 2017.

The first talk of the year was recorded at Western University and will be used as part of a continuing education program for Canadian Pedorthists. The central theme of all of my talks will be to provide an overview of how massage therapy can be utilized as a frontline intervention for aches and pain.

Another presentation that I just wrapped up was at the 2017 RMTAO Education Conference: Excellence in Practice. This presentations covered current research as it relates to triggerpoints, pain science, massage therapy and acupuncture.

I had a number of people who asked for a copy of the powerpoint document, so please click on the link below if you would like a copy.
