New Training Center offers affordable CEUs and More

So, this bit of information just floated into my email that I thought was great stuff and must be shared with all the dedicated massage therapists in the Northwest.

There is this new organization called Therapeutic Training Center, Inc. that is dedicated to bringing high quality additional training opportunities to us manual therapy workers. Check them out at http://www.theratraining.com/

Notable are the instructors themselves. These are heavyweights from the Seattle massage scene including, Pat Archer, Brian Utting and Julie Bacon. And the pricing for the different classes is completely reasonable, ranging from $80 to $260.

I also couldn't help but notice, this organization also makes efforts on behalf of traveling therapists that come to the area to take classes, helping them find a place to stay during their visit.

Yes, it's nice to see an entity like this pop-up and I hope you all will take time to check out their website soon. Again it's at http://www.theratraining.com/

Be well!

Learn the secrets of building a successful massage practice and get 4 CEUs

As part of our commitment to the massage community, Find Touch has developed the Nuts and Bolts Class for a Successful Massage Practice.

We recognize that to be a successful massage therapist, in addition to professional massage technique you also need a good personal presence and effective communication with your clients.

Based on ‘best-practices’ gathered from the most successful LMPs and massage businesses, the Nuts and Bolts class teaches you must-know skills of how to present yourself and how to communicate during a massage session so as to ensure consistently satisfied clients that become repeat customers.

The next class will be held on Saturday, January 17 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Dreamclinic, 902 NE 65th St., Seattle. The class costs $95, and upon completion of the 4-hour class you'll receive a certificate for 4 CEUs.

The class is strongly recommended for anyone interested in obtaining Find Touch Certification.
