Massage School Beyond Certification

By: David T.

When you attend a North Carolina Massage school for the first time, getting your certification is the first thing on your mind. You study for endless hours, turn all of your friends into guinea pigs for the massage techniques you are learning, bring your anatomy flash cards with you whenever there is a chance that you'll have to stand in line, etc. The experience of learning how the body works on a physical level, and how that translates into the whole body is something that can really open one's eyes to the way that everything is interconnected. Bodyworkers know that emotions can be stored in muscles, and that relieving stress in the body can do amazing things for mental and emotional stresses. This is a far cry different from the fix-it-when-it-breaks approach that so many healthcare practitioners in western society learn and practice. Healing the body can be preventative- nothing needs to be broken or in pain for therapeutic touch to be a beneficial thing.

Massage school can open your eyes to all of that and more, which is partly why massage continuing education classes are so popular. Being able to learn more modalities of healing that can be added on to an existing massage practice really just seems like the most logical next step. After all, if there was more you could do to make your clients leave their session feeling like they had experienced a physical transformation and were refreshed and renewed, ready to take on their lives, wouldn't you want to do it? Some of the techniques that can be learned through massage continuing education can actually increase the effectiveness of massage. Best of all, going back to massage school to take these courses isn't going to pull you away from your practice or take up all you time (unlike getting your certification that first time around).

Some of the most popular techniques studied in one North Carolina massage school as part of their continuing education program are cranial sacral therapy, Asian bodywork, reflexology, and massage cupping. Each of these techniques is healing in its own right, and when combined with massage, the two can work together to help create a more balanced, healthy body. If you are a bodyworker who is wondering what the next step is in your career, why not add on some of the modalities listed above. On a professional level, you will be increasing your marketable skills as well as being able to increase your revenue by having these add-on options available to your clients.
