Since the early spring of 2000, Triangle area health care professionals, including students of massage and bodywork, have increasingly demanded more frequent and sophisticated levels of continuing education to advance their careers. With new research and a renewed spotlight on the sports and medical massage fields, our profession no longer lies under the shadow of obscurity.
Over the past 10 years, North Carolina has seen a steady increase of interest around the profession. In fact, North Carolina joined 40 other U.S. states, along with over 35 other countries, which regulate bodywork practitioners — thus contributing to the explosion of consumer confidence, service providers, and practices in the massage industry.
This regulation and industry growth has greatly benefited massage therapists in that there is much more variety in continuing education (CE) opportunities. Therapists no longer have to travel across the country to learn from industry experts, as these knowledge leaders are emerging all across the United States, especially here in North Carolina.
Today’s CE student demands a much more sophisticated and professionalized atmosphere where techniques and tools are readily available for them, and industry knowledge leaders are there and willing to assist students in grasping and mastering complex concepts which they can quickly put into play at their respective practices.
Bodywork Therapy Seminars is excited to announce that just in time for our Fall 2014 semester, we will be celebrating our continued success and professional evolution by opening the doors of our new school; custom designed for dedicated bodywork professionals. The school is 1.3 mile from I-40, located on Chapel Hill Road in Cary NC, and is just minutes from landmarks such as Crossroads Plaza, SAS institute, and the North Carolina Fairgrounds.
Bodywork Therapy Seminars is also excited that our new school will be adjacent to the brand new Hands On Health practice (coming September 2014), which will include six treatment rooms within the massage clinic. The unique partnership between Bodywork Therapy Seminars and Hands On Health, along with the ambiance and unique design of the building, will offer continuing education students exposure to both our teaching practice and our established and well-respected massage therapy practice. What better way is there to lead today’s advancing professionals than to show students the academic and practical execution of standards of care in action?
Hands On Health and Bodywork Therapy Seminars, with the support of our loyal clients and students, are excited to bring this Education-and-Practice-Based model to the Triangle community.
Watch our construction unfold! Follow www.handsonhealthnc.com/facebook for frequent updates.
We look forward to teaching and empowering all the fabulous massage therapy professionals that reside in North Carolina and from afar!
