08 Oct Director of Ed, Bev Giroud, Talks Professionalism in Massage on “How’s the Pressure?” Podcast
Last week, Beverley Giroud, Director of Education, at the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy was featured on the massage therapy themed podcast: How’s the Pressure?
Here’s what the show’s host, Haley Winter, had to say:
“This week I am bringing in Beverley Giroud to talk about Professionalism in the world of Bodywork. Beverley is the director of education at the costa rica school of massage, where among many other responsibilities she provides leadership, academic counseling, mentorship to support academic achievement for all students. She is also the author of a book called “Ethics and Professionalism for Massage Therapists and Bodyworkers”.
I thought it would be useful to bring someone in to talk about professionalism, because it can feel like both a catch-all phase, and quite subjective at the same time. So this conversation is designed to bring a little clarity to the issue. I ask questions about common ways massage professionalism gets ignored and about how sexual misconduct plays into that topic.”
Beverley serves as the Director of Education for CRSMT. Beverley discovered a love of teaching and a passion for the industry while earning her massage therapy certificate in 1998. She became an instructor in 1999 and has been volunteering on a national level throughout her career. She served on and chaired the NCBTMB’s Exam Development Committee for 10 years and has been serving as a COMTA Commissioner since 2012. Beverley’s extensive experience in private practice as well as many hours of interaction with other professionals in and out of the classroom provides a wealth of learning experiences to share. She is also the author of “Ethics and Professionalism for Massage Therapists and Bodyworkers”.
