Teaching Massage – Adult Education for Massage Program Instructors
Teaching massage is a skill and a gift. Massage teachers display talents in many areas and must be adept at lecturing, demonstrations, and group facilitation. Teaching calls for a knowledge of adult learners, of the principles of massage practice, of the sciences related to the body, of curriculum content, and of specific methods. All of this knowledge is supported by a teacher’s self-knowledge and ability to explore strengths and weaknesses in their delivery of program materials.
If it has always been your dream to be a Massage Instructor, but you lack the experience of actually working with students in a structured classroom setting, this is the course for you. I hope you will be inspired and pass that on to the next generation of massage students.
In this course we will explore;

Your personal education philosophy
Professional boundaries and ethics for instructors
General Characteristics of Massage Therapy Students
Curriculum Design for Body Centered Learning
Practical Application in Hands-on Courses
