When Chris first brought this class to me, I was blown away. He has combined his experience as a veteran of the US Military serving in war zones, his experience as a disaster responder, and his experience as a massage therapist to create his career and this class. It truly is one of the best classes I’ve ever been introduced to in the 20 years I’ve been a massage therapist. ~ Laura Allen

Massage therapy continuing education courses are more than a hurdle to jump for license renewal. Massage therapists today are presented with an incredible array of opportunities to hone their craft, learn new techniques, and expand their practice into new areas. With topics ranging from new modalities to how to build a business, massage CE workshops offer something for every bodyworker.

For NCBTMB recertification, massage therapists must complete 24 credit hours of massage CE classes every two years. Three of those hours must be in research, three must be in ethics, and no more than four can be in self-care. Hands-on CE workshops, seminars, and distance learning offer plenty of ways to fulfill the 24-hour requirement.
