Stretching on the Table
In terms of continuing education, therapeutic massage is a catch-all term for any massage technique that does not fall under a broad modality. Courses in this area are often geared toward improving your overall massage sessions or teaching lesser-known modalities. You can pick up new techniques, learn to use new tools or take foundation courses in new modalities.
Practical anatomy lessons and treatment protocols for specific muscle groups, conditions, and areas of the body are the most common therapeutic massage CE courses. Interesting approaches like two massage therapists working in tandem and integrative massage, combining multiple modalities in a single session, are also taught. You may be able to find courses in resort massage and branded modalities as well.
