Q. Why does continuing education matters to the massage therapy profession?

A. Continuing education is essential to a massage therapist because it will keep you current with the most innovative techniques, expand your tool box so you will be able to choose the most effective modality for the specific needs of your clients, and keep your regular clients happy by introducing new techniques to your sessions. I’ve been a massage therapist for over 30 years and feel like there is still SO much more to learn. My love of this profession grows through continuing education classes. In addition, working with another therapist in a class is the perfect opportunity to share feedback that you just don’t share with clients. We can fine-tune our skills in a safe and supportive environment.
