Continuing Education Classes
I am a NCBTMB approved provider of Continuing Education for licensed massage therapists and practitioners. My goal is to create workshops and classes that truly inform, challenge and inspire massage therapists to move beyond their current therapeutic skill sets and understandings. I also want to help develop, and participate in, a community that is continually evolving as therapists, healers and artists and that desires to be able to fully express that evolution through their massage and bodywork.
However, community is starting to look a little different with all of the distancing that is going on. So in 2021 I am going to, with a little sadness, close my physical school location and start focusing on doing distance learning webinars using the Zoom platform. These will be live, private and small group continuing education workshops of just about all of my NCBTMB certified courses. I will be setting up a full time video learning studio using a three camera set up so that you can see the work I am doing from several angles and the classes will be just as interactive as my in-person courses.
My normal rate for private video training for one individual is $125 per hour and includes what I pay to the person that I use for my demonstrations and teaching, which can make distance learning a bit of an investment. However, I can charge a lot less when more people take the same course. As you can see in the table below the cost can be as low as $20 an hour.
For Most Classes You WIll Need
Someone To Work On/With: You need to have someone to work on in order to take a course for CE credit. The way that this works the best is if every therapist who is taking the video workshop has another therapist with them that is taking the workshop as well. This minimizes the number of video feeds that I have to focus on and gives everybody more attention if they need it. In addition it gives both of you someone to work and practice after the class has ended. Once you have your partner you can both register for the class (if applicable)
Register: When you register for the class you will need to pay a deposit of $80 for a four-hour class or $160 for an eight-hour class. As long as we get 10 people for the class this will be your total payment. If we get less than 10 people the cost of the class will go up as indicated above; if you do not want to pay more for the class you can just ask for a full refund of your original $80.
Massage Equipment and Supplies: You will need the normal massage equipment and supplies needed for each class. The specific ones will be listed in the class information.
I will be posting my new class schedule on January 1st
