Susan Backman, LMT, CMLDT
I began my studies at Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in Westport, CT during the very beginning of 2001, where I was awarded a diploma from the Clinical Massage Therapy Program as well as a Certification of Excellence in recognition of Excellence in Community Service by the School administration.
The Clinical Massage Therapy Program is an intensive program, spanning 1040 hours of instruction over a 24 month period (well above state requirements). In addition to the massage therapy and science classes, the program also has extensive courses in Eastern modalities including Acupressure (shiatsu), Business Practices, and Ethics,
I have represented the school as a course tutor in; Anatomy and Physiology I, II & III, Palpation, Clinical Pathology, Kinesiology, East-West Pathology and Neurology. I have also officiated as a course assistant in numerous Discovery Workshops at the Westport, CT school, as well as a course assistant in Anatomy and Physiology I and II, as well as Discovery Workshop instructor on numerous occasions in Westport CT, Newington CT and Groton CT.
With hard work, determination, and the help of wonderful people,
Connecticut Therapeutic Massage was born during the dawn of 2003.
