I'm new to this forum, and I hope this reaches a broad audience of ABMP members. I wanted to post information about a workshop coming up in April. It's a 14-CEU workshop in Hanover, NH, called “Cancer, Trauma, Presence, Touch,” scheduled for Friday-Sunday, April 10-12. It will take place at The Center for Integrative Health in Hanover, NH (hometown of Dartmouth College).

I will be leading the workshop with Erica Zinter, a psychotherapist who specializes in treating people with trauma histories.

This program will be a wide-ranging exploration of the nature of trauma, including emerging neuroscience regarding trauma and relationship; of how cancer and other life-threatening illness can be seen from the perspective of trauma; of the nature and practice of compassionate presence; and of the ways in which touch can make presence even more powerful. The program includes a three-hour segment on ethics that satisfies half of the ethics requirement for board certification by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. (We are NCBTMB approved providers.)

I am Steve Gordon, a massage therapist at the Center for Integrative Health in Hanover and founder and executive director of The Hand to Heart Project, a nonprofit that has been providing free in-home massage since 2007 to people with advanced cancer. Erica Zinter is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and co-director of the Center for Integrative Health. She specializes in treating complex trauma and has a particular interest in the role of creativity in healing and recovery.

The workshop will run Friday evening, all day Saturday, and Sunday morning. The cost is $280. For more information or to sign up, please contact me at or (603) 477-4700.

San Francisco area massage therapists: see for information about upcoming classes in San Bruno (March and September). Both classes teach very relaxing, stress-relieving techniques. Check payment conditions for early payment discount info.

Chances are, you know a massage therapist who has suffered from an injury that has kept them from working, if you haven't experienced an injury yet yourself. It's a scary thing to think about, since we love our careers and our clients so much. Most LMTs are also independent contractors, therefore unable to make a Workers' Compensation claim if/when an injury does occur, so the safety and protection of our hands truly lies in our OWN hands.

Please join me as I teach a 6-CEU workshop in historic Oregon City, Oregon (the end of the Oregon Trail!) based on the 2nd Edition Save Your Hands! book written by Lauriann Greene & Rick Goggins. Learn a multitude of ways to protect your most valuable assets--your hands and body! Space is limited, so please sign up to save your spot and get your book soon. If you aren't able to join us in the next few months, you may want to purchase the book now and begin to read through it, then sign up for a workshop at a later date.

Visit for more information and workshop dates. You can register through the website, or directly at

Time: 9am-4pm, including a break for lunch

Location: 707 Madison Street, Oregon City, 97045--Subject to change based on number of participants.

CEUs: 6 NCBTMB Approved CEUs

Cost: $150--includes a copy of the 2nd edition Save Your Hands! book (required for the workshop, please read through prior to hands-on workshop) and cost of workshop.

Proven methods exist to lower the incidence of work-related injury. Many of them involve making simple but important changes to your activities, both at work and elsewhere; others will take more thought and practice to apply. But taking the necessary steps to prevent injury is much easier and less disruptive to your career than dealing with an injury once it has occurred. Ideally, all students should learn effective injury prevention and ergonomics techniques during their training, to prepare them for the challenges of their future careers.

Space is limited--sign up now to guarantee your spot!

LMTs! I'm in the market to teach you all about protecting your bodies from the strenuous work YOU do while taking care of your clients' needs. Many LMTs are self-employed or independent contractors, so there's no PTO or Worker's Comp "safety net" to fall into should you become injured. That leaves you to choose between working through the pain, or NOT working and taking an income loss. Ouch or...ouch! Learn how to prevent injuries in my CE class Sunday, November 23 instead! 

Because I want the dry-spell since teaching my last class to be over, I'm even offering the required 2nd edition Save Your Hands! book free--a $39.95 savings--for the workshop on Sunday, November 23--yahoo!! Check out or call 503-318-9626 for more information and to register.

Indian Champissage workshops carry 21 CE hours, the next two workshops will be in Lakewood, Southern California, and in San Bruno, CA, near San Francisco International Airport, both in October.  If you want to learn a wonderful 'Stress Buster' modality which is extremely portable and easy on your hands, see for details. Maximum ten participants per workshop. This is the original Indian Champissage, a 30-minute head massage technique originating in India. which was developed and perfected at the London Centre of Indian Champissage. Let me know if you are interested in either one of these dates or a future workshop!

In the Save Your Hands! Injury Prevention Workshop, you will develop an awareness of injuries and how they're caused, learn strategies for injury prevention, recognize symptoms, develop a customized self-care plan, and spend ample hands-on time finding alternatives to stressful techniques. A worthwhile investment in your career, you'll benefit no matter your experience or employment status.

Because I have just recently revived the content of the workshop, and because I'm hoping you can drop your existing plans to join us, I'm offering a $20 discount for the Sept 28 workshop date in Oregon City, Oregon. for more information. You can register through the site, or just call me--503-318-9626. I'd love to talk with you and arrange getting your book to you prior to the workshop if possible.

Can't make it to this one? "Like" my page to keep informed of future workshop dates:
