19 Feb Continuing Education Requirements for Massage Therapists in Colorado
Most massage therapists complete their program with a solid foundation and the necessary skills to begin and develop their practice. They may find that they are competent in what they do and may even have a steady flow of clients. After a while, there will come a time, when as a massage therapist, there is a need to branch out and explore other modalities and approaches to the healing process. It becomes necessary to take your career to the next level. That is where continuing education classes come in.
Denver Integrative Massage School offers a wide variety of Continuing Education courses throughout the year. These are all designed to provide current massage therapists a chance to explore new techniques that will enhance their practice. Some of our offerings include Thai Massage for the Table, Traditional Thai Massage, Sound Healing, Art of Compressing and Plant Brushings and Prayers.
Currently, the state of Colorado does not require continuing education hours to renew certification. However, it’s always good to keep yourself fresh and knowledgeable as more and more people turn to massage for all kinds of reasons. In addition, the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) does require that massage therapists complete 48 hours every 4 years to maintain national certification.
