Teach Touch to Your Community
A Continuing Education Course by Eric Brown
Do massage workshops for additional income, to educate the public, to move people into your practice or just for fun. It couldn't be easier with the "Teach Touch to Your Community" online course and teaching package - a complete workshop presentation kit. NCBTMB -approved for 2 CE hours.
Unlike most introductory massage classes where participants need to undress or need to work on the floor (unless you go to the trouble of supplying everyone with tables), the Teach Touch to Your Community workshop program is super practical:
- All the techniques in this workshop are done over the clothing and are taught with the participants sitting in standard chairs. This makes it incredibly accessible to anyone.
- There is no discomfort associated with disrobing -people remain clothed
- You don't need to supply tables or other special equipment - a standard chair is all that's needed
- No messy oils are used
- You can do it practically anywhere - from your reception room or a client's home to a church basement or a trade show floor
- All techniques are easy to understand and teach
- Almost anyone can do these techniques - they've been taught to kids, seniors and even the wheelchair-bound
- It consists of 10 separate modules and can be taught in various formats from one-hour "lunch and learns" to weekend workshops
- All course materials are online and available for you to customize and download anytime at the touch of a button.
As part of this course, you'll get illustrated teaching notes that you can personalize at the touch of a button with your contact information and print for participants.
This package provides you with everything you need to teach your own massage workshops - everything, but the classroom. This package includes:
- Professionally produced video of the techniques for each region which you can use for your own reference or that you can play in class. These are average everyday folks, just like the people who will be attending your workshop.
- A detailed outline of how to conduct the class, from managing introductions and setting expectations, to discussing hygiene and body mechanics.
- Detailed teaching scripts. You don't need to figure out what to say or how to teach the techniques. I've scripted everything out for you. Use the scripts or adapt them to meet your needs.
- Teaching strategies and guidelines for managing your class effectively.
- Illustrated class handouts that can be personalized with your very own contact information at the click of a button and copied for your participants' reference.
This incredible collection of resources makes it super-easy for you to run and profit from your very own workshop, all while spreading a message of touch as a positive social value.
