There have been many exciting announcements coming from the massage therapy program here at Globe University-Eau Claire in recent months. From the new offering of a Friday/Saturday program, which allows working students more flexibility when earning their degree, to numerous on campus events aimed at promoting self-care and wellness, there is certainly a lot to talk about.
Adding to all the buzz is now a series of continuing education courses here on campus for existing licensed massage therapists.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services, “Beginning with the renewal period commencing on March 1, 2015, each Massage Therapist/Bodywork Therapist must complete 24 hours of continuing education, including two (2) hours of ethics, to renew a license.”
The series offered here at Globe University-Eau Claire, includes a wide variety of topics such as ethics, aromatherapy and also self-care. Program Chair, Joan Hamilton, is excited to be able to offer continuing education classes here on campus, which have been approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
Joan says, “The classes are a great way to expand the offerings here on campus and help massage therapists in need of continuing education. They also allow us to increase our interaction with the massage therapy community and create a strong partnership among all therapists as the profession continues to grow.”
