STUART, FL. – On Nov. 20, 2011, Debbie Roberts, licensed massage therapist and owner of Massage & Fitness Professionals of the Treasure Coast, presented a six-hour seminar sponsored by BioFreeze during the National Winter Convention and Expo for the Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA), at the Naples Grande Resort & Club, in Naples, Florida. Roberts invited all local licensed massage therapists working in chiropractic offices to attend and/or any massage therapist looking to expand his or her knowledge in the field of golf-related injuries.
Roberts spoke about “Golf-ability,” which covers how massage therapists can be a part of a team approach to making the golfer more injury-free, building the relationship between massage therapist, chiropractic physicians and, ultimately, help the patient live pain-free. Additionally, Roberts covered some of the research reports presented by world-renowned golf specific medical experts and internationally recognized golf instructors.

Roberts is the innovator of the Assessment, Treatment, & Muscle Stabilization (ATM) Technique™. An international author and speaker, she is the founder of Debbie Roberts Seminars, a CEU program providing continuing education for massage therapists and personal trainers who want to reach their full potential in their chosen fields. Certified though the National Board of Massage and the Florida Board of Massage, Roberts is best known for her unparalleled understanding of the anatomy of an injury and her focus on assessment and treatment plans designed to facilitate a client’s form and function.
Because nationally certified massage therapists must earn CEUs every four years to retain certification status, massage seminars and workshops such as this provided ample training opportunities to both the professional massage therapist and the curious alike.
