Finding the Value in Online Education




In recent years,

massage education has become available via online courses. Many therapists, new to online education, have concerns that these classes aren't as valuable and effective as traditional onsite education. While nothing can replace the experience of an onsite class where we meet, touch and share directly, online education does offer benefits that on-site education cannot.

 Accessibility is one of the benefits of online courses. Traditionally, if a therapist wanted to study with a nationally known expert they would have to travel where the course was being offered, take days off work and possibly even take a career break depending on the length of the course. Online education offers the same quality education but in a more convenient setting. With online education, you can study with the masters on your schedule. All you need is a computer and an internet connection. If online education existed in the early days, massage therapists would have had the opportunity to receive education from massage therapy legends like Ida Rolf, Bonnie Prudden, Dr. John Upledger and Randolph Stone no matter where they lived and save hundreds of dollars in travel expenses in the process.

In addition to being more accessible, online education is also more flexible than traditional education, especially for therapists who work. With online education, you can study when you want. The flexibility of an online education allows you the ability to maintain your priorities and your work schedule while still taking time to learn. 

Finally, one of the best advantages of online education is the cost. Registration fees for online CEUs are less expensive than onsite programs. When you add in the potential savings associated with travel and loss of work hours, the savings is impressive.

Online continuing education for massage therapists is an effective, affordable way to gain additional knowledge conveniently. Online courses offer a consistent education and enable students to receive repetitive information, whereas attending an onsite continuing education seminar offers one-time access to the information.

As technology advances, we will see much more education offered online. If you have not taken a continuing education class online, try it out and see for yourself the knowledge you can gain. 

At Massage Envy, our massage therapists and estheticians can take advantage of a variety of online continuing education courses at a discounted rate.
