Recently, Jennifer Youngs, massage therapy executive program chair for Minnesota School of Business and Globe University campuses in Minnesota and South Dakota, attended Northwestern Health Sciences University’s Winter Massage Symposium. This year’s theme was “East Meets West.” The two-day seminar is filled with continuing education opportunities, networking, massage vendors and fun! This event includes 13.5 hours of continuing education comprised of both lecture and hands-on classes. Additionally there is a cadaver lab available which is an incredible experience.

This year the hands-on instructor and keynote speaker was Shinzo Fujimaki, one of the most sought-after shiatsu instructors in the world.”
