About your Instructor:
Hugh Bofenkamp, MS, MTI, CEP, LMT, CIPI

 

My goal as an Instructor is to help massage therapists understand that pain is not a part of our work. We need to understand how to safely and effectively work with clients and not put ourselves in harm’s way. I have dedicated my continuing education to understanding and developing ways to work safely and efficiently while meeting client’s expectations for massage that includes excessive pressure.

Mr. Bofenkamp an instructor at the Texas School of Massage in Clear Lake, TX since 2005.  His primary class load is on Health and Hygiene emphasizing Body Mechanics and Injury Prevention. Hands on classes focused on the safe delivery of massage with pressure (deep tissue) to satisfy clientele expecting pressure during massage and Fascial Therapies.

Hugh continues to see clients with a practice focused on pain relief, acute injuries and orthopedic injuries.
