Massage Continuing Education
classes you must take, courses you love!

Live massage continuing education (CE) classes for therapists are being offered all over the world, however, home study courses are growing in popularity due to their convenience and cost.

Home study courses give therapists the opportunity to expand their knowledge of massage techniques and earn their massage CE credits when it is convenient for them. They are easy to take and tests are often provided and taken on the same day.

Hands-on, live CE classes may be the best if you are a visual learner. You can read articles about CE classes, providers who teach the massage therapy classes, and learn how to understand which classes would be right for you and your practice.

Live classes also give you the opportunity to practice on a real person and immediately (and comfortably) add the technique to your massage service menu. 

If you are a massage therapist and you would like to read about how to bring a continuing education class or provider to your city or state, read our tips on choosing a CE class based on the CE provider.

Learn more about how you can get CE hours by taking massage continuing education webinars. Webinars are web-based seminars that allow therapists to learn in their own home, but through live classes where interactions and discussions are possible.

Massage therapy CE requirements vary from state to state. Make sure that you verify that the provider for the CE classes that you are interested in, whether home study, live classroom or webinar learning, is an approved provider for your state.

It is also important to verify how many CE hours are required by your liability/malpractice insurance provider. Read about AMTA requirements.

This is one of the massage videos that talk about choosing the best continuing education:

If you love the idea of teaching, you may want to take teacher certification courses that will allow you to be a massage therapy continuing education instructor.

Or, if you want to open your own massage therapy school, your massage continuing education could be a class to learn the step-by-step process of what is involved getting a license, certification, and leasing the building that will become your massage school.

Call your state massage board to find out what the requirements are for becoming a CE instructor.

You can also explore the possibility of becoming specialized in a modality that not many therapists are in your area.

Attending sports massage therapy schools is a popular choice for therapists who live or work near athletic training centers, fitness centers, or professional sports teams.

Equine massage therapy schools are popular with therapists who live near horse race tracks, horse farms, show-horse training facilities, or who just love working with horses.

Massage Continuing Education classes can be so much fun. Just being around others who do what you do for a living, share the same struggles as you and go through many of the same "ups-and-downs", which is all part of the profession, can be comforting.

So, search for your next CE class, and then look forward to learning and growing as a massage therapist.
