About Kathy Ginn – Ethics, Business Development, Effective Communication and Psychology of Touch Instructor
Thank you for visiting with me. I am glad you are here. Currently, I live in the beautiful city of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, a town half way between Madison and Milwaukee. Please follow me as I continue to share my professional experience with you along with my passion for ethics education.
I have been active in the profession of massage therapy and bodywork since 1991. I have completed advanced training in the Hakomi method of body-centered experiential therapy and I am forever grateful to have met Cedar Barstow, M. Ed., a certified Hakomi Therapist. I have completed her teacher’s training in Ethics as Right Use of Power, and currently belong to the Right Use of Power teacher’s guild, a group of passionate educators committed to the often fragile and dynamic area of ethics education. I am also blessed to serve on the advisory board for the Right Use of Power Institute.
My bodywork practice is balanced with teaching at the curriculum level along with offering continuing education both locally and nationally. I am on faculty at East West Healing Arts Institute located in Madison and Milwaukee, teaching courses in Ethics, Business Development, Effective Communication and Psychology of Touch. I served with the NCBTMB Ethics committee for 8 years, and have been an approved provider with NCBTMB since 2003. I am also a Proctor Gallagher Thinking Into Results consultant – guiding and mentoring individuals into the life they truly desire.
My deep passion for ethics education began the first day I entered massage therapy school, and knowing that the presence of the therapist and who we bring into the caring situation has the greatest impact on the therapeutic relationship. I love challenging people’s preconceived ideas regarding ethics education. I have attempted over the years to offer a unique and meaningful approach to ethics education and inspire others to explore the elements of healing that reach far beyond technique. Ethics education offers more than simply guiding others into what to do and how to do it. Rather it is an invitation to travel within, to discover and heal the self that shows up in the session room. Our work then becomes a spiritual practice that reflects our inner work.
My classes often draw from my personal journey of inner exploration, personal growth and over 25 years of professional experience in the field of massage therapy and bodywork. My commitment and passion is to make a positive difference in the lives of others. It is learning to trust and live from our magnificence and in return offering our inner light to everyone we touch! Ethics education can truly be inspiring, dynamic, nourishing and engaging!
