Teaching massage is a deeply rewarding experience that can change your perspective on massage and bodywork. It also offers another avenue for fulfilling your hands-on work experience requirement for re-certification. Whether you are already a teacher or thinking about becoming one, continuing education can help you hone your teaching skills and find new ways of reaching your students.
Teaching courses are available for a wide range of modalities from qigong to orthopedic massage. Broader courses teach you how to assess students and build better lessons with exams, improve your leadership skills and keep students engaged during lectures. Some classes challenge conventions, such as whether or not textbooks are necessary, or help you modernize student outreach through social media.
