EDU-TALK Series: Breath, COVID and Massage hosted by BIOTONE and presented by Ruth Werner. Anxiety causes shortness of breath. People recovering from COVID-19 also have shortness of breath. Shortness of breath causes anxiety—which exacerbates shortness of breath. All of this has a profound impact on quality of life and the ability to function. Into this maelstrom of fear, anxiety, and problems with breathing, massage therapy may have a profoundly positive impact. Ruth Werner explores breath, COVID, and massage—and how we may be able to apply our skills to bring our best to clients.
