Research Science

Clinical research helps bodyworkers make techniques more effective and gain traction in the medical community. Because research can be used to fulfill NCBTMB work experience requirements, pursuing continuing education in research science can be useful path for therapists looking to take their skills beyond performing massage.

Many courses are centered on specific research areas, such as the cultural history of massage or clinical studies on fascia. Practical courses emphasize the importance of building an evidence-based practice and how to both find, interpret, evaluate and apply existing research. If you are interested in doing your own research, you can learn how to develop a thesis, write up case studies for publication and perform scientifically and ethically sound research.
