Massage Therapy Schools Protecting Student Assets

Massage therapy schools teach their students the most important and valuable lessons they can with the understanding that some things cannot be learned in a classroom.

One thing that can (and should) be taught at massage therapy school however, is that each student needs to focus on protecting their biggest asset: their own body.

In massage therapy schools around the world, plenty of students tire of being reprimanded by their instructors because of poor posture and body control issues. However, this could be one of the most important things one can learn because without a good back and dexterous control of the hands a massage therapist we cannot be. It is important to prevent injury on the job so this is a core component of good massage therapy school programs.

There are programs available to teachers at massage therapy schools who wish to learn the latest and greatest in injury prevention and protection. As with all things health related, new discoveries and methods are published each year and it is important for schools to stay on top of the newest information and industry trends. Not doing so could put the massage therapy school at a disadvantage in this highly competitive injury.

Students should ask their prospective massage therapy schools about injury prevention and protection training and inquire into whether or not faculty members are up to date on the latest information.  Some organizations estimate that more than 75% of professional massage therapists report injuries received during the course of their work.

Proper body handling, posture, and technique can prevent most injuries in the profession, so students should verify that the massage therapy school is ready to teach techniques that are approved and work. Massage therapy schools that employ a certified injury prevention instructor are always preferred.
