Massage Therapy School and Continued Education

A Chicago massage therapy business’ recent announcement to partner up with a continuing education producer spurs conversations about how massage therapy school is a career-long endeavor.

Massage therapy school doesn’t really end at graduation for those who are serious about their career; continued education is a “must” for staying at the top of the field.

Best Massage, a Chicago based equipment and service provider, recently announced its partnership with a continuing education provider to help its customers stay on top of their professional education. The Center for Massage Therapy Continuing Education Program will offer Best Massage customers up to 7 board approved continuing education courses. Massage therapy school and continuing education requirements vary by state, but the courses offered here are compliant with the National Certification board for Therapeutic Massage and Body Work.

Continuing education is an important aspect of a massage therapy career and is usually a state requirement for seeking to renew one’s massage therapy license. Continued massage therapy schooling throughout the career of a massage therapist is also critical to the success of their business. Massage techniques change almost every year and as new discoveries are made by medical researchers about how our bodies work, massage therapy techniques must change to accommodate the new information.

At the end of the day, massage therapy school is a basis for a lifelong education process. Just like any other health related field, massage therapy is an evolving and dynamic industry. Diseases and musculoskeletal conditions are sometimes best treated with massage therapy and learning as much as possible about them is an integral part of being relevant to clients.

Perhaps Amona Buechler, the owner of Best Massage, said it best in the release (available at SBWire) when she said, “Building on what we already know as well as learning something completely new makes us better massage therapists both in practice and in business.”
