Are There Any Free Massage Courses?

Published / by wellsking / Leave a Comment

Have you ever considered doing a massage course? Are you looking for something to help your career or just a little something to do in your spare time? Most people will look at free massage courses when they consider doing this. The real problem comes with finding quality courses for free.

What to look for in massage courses

If you are going to do massage courses you need to know what they should cover. You will first have to find out which part of the body they will be focussing on. Some courses focus on the head while others will be more general. It is important that the course educates you on when the massage techniques should be used. The best courses you can get will teach you more than one technique to use. The reason for this is that one technique might not be appropriate for the person you are massaging. It is ideal that you course covers both practical and theoretical aspects of massage. While it is fine to know how to do something it is better to know why you are doing it and how it is affecting the body.

Where to look for free massage courses

Once you have decided that a massage course is what you want to do you may consider free ones? The only problem is where do you find these free courses?

* Most towns will have a community college that may offer these courses for free. However, you may find that the schedule for any free course has them few and far between. Additionally, you may find that there is a small rate being charged at the college for certain courses.

* Very rarely you will be able to get vouchers for a course. This will generally be a very basic course which may be designed to leave you wanting more.

* Massage instructors who are just starting out may offer a free course. It is much harder to find these courses as they will not be largely advertised. Looking in your local paper or at notice boards in town can lead you to these rare finds.

Some warnings to keep in mind

It is best that you approach free courses carefully. If you just take the first free course you find you may have a number of problems afterwards.

* Free courses often don’t cover the same material as paid ones. The idea behind most free courses is to have you go on to buy the next course. This means that they will give you just enough to get you interested but you have to pay to know more.

* Free courses are not recognised the same as paid ones. Very few employers will hire a massage therapist on the basis that they have completed a free course. If this is what you want to do then it would be better to go with a paid course.

It is possible to find free massage courses even if it is harder to find them than paid ones. Of course you have to be aware of some of the problems that can come from doing these courses.

Learn at Home Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a wonderful art that uses both hand works and scientific methods in improving the condition of the human body to achieve a healthy mind and body. This method of natural healing is done by licensed massage therapists who are trained and skilled in performing various massage strokes and techniques without injuring the patient.

There are many ways on how to become a licensed massage therapist although learning the art is the first thing to consider if you are planning on becoming one. There are many options when it comes to learning the trade. Studying at a massage school is probably the best thing to do if you want a complete and updated course on massage therapy. Interaction is also a great addition to the wonderful experience and knowledge you will attain from having your lessons at school. However, if you don’t have the time to go to school, or you just don’t want to learn it at school, you can search for online accredited massage schools that offer such course on the internet. Make sure that the online school you are enrolling is accredited and has good standards in massage therapy.

It is also a good idea to contact your state’s board of massage and bodywork therapy for you to have information regarding what are the requirements and needed to be learned to be a licensed massage therapist. You can either see them personally at their office or drop a call for your inquiries. Make sure that you ask all of the necessary questions and information you need as you will be studying and practicing massage therapy for a long time that is why it is important to know that what you are getting into is the real deal.

When you have your online school, check out which massage therapy methods you would like to take and specialize. Always remember that this course takes about two to four years time before you can complete it, which is why choosing what you want is important. It is also vital that the massage therapy program you have chosen includes kinesiology, anatomy, and physiology in its course as these are covered in the licensure exam of massage therapists.

You can also purchase books regarding your chosen massage therapy method as these materials have contents that are not available online. These can also be handy as they can be used as a quick reference and can be taken with you anywhere you want to go.

Practice is the key to success in learning massage therapy at homes. Unlike when taking the course in school where the school provides an instructor and a test subject, the home school requires you to do it on your own which means you will have to pay for a test subject. However, you don’t need to do that as you can always practice with your family or friends. Before you can take the licensure exam, a minimum of 1,000 hours should be completed to pass the requirements and become a certified massage therapist.
