For any bodyworker, massage schools are both the start of your journey and way stations on the road to self-improvement. Massage schools provide more than just basic training and fulfillment of credit hour requirements. Each has a unique approach to education, offers different modalities, and approaches massage from a unique perspective. Some massage schools are stand-alone while others are connected to a spa school, holistic healing school or even a local community college. Take your time exploring your options. The massage school you choose will help shape you as a massage therapist.
Massage schools are also a key player in continuing education (CE). Nearby schools are a great place to ask for information on continuing education opportunities, and some even offer their own massage CE courses. Schools that specialize in one type of massage or a targeted approach, like holistic massage, are an excellent place to look.
