LMT Continuing Education

Besides offering high quality, professional massage, bodywork, and spa services, I offer continuing education courses for Texas licensed massage therapists (LMTs) who need CEUs as a part of our two-year re-certification requirement by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR).

For Texas, I am a massage therapy instructor (MTI) and a massage therapy CE provider, so I can teach massage therapy subject matter AND issue those all-important Certificates of Attendance which are required by TDLR as proof of CE hours earned. My courses are typically correspondence, blended, or face-to-face. Correspondence courses are taught remotely, whereas blended courses are those where students review foundational information about a subject on their own, then meet in person where hands-on instruction is offered. Face-to-face courses are 100% hands-on instruction.

If the demand requires, I am prepared to offer certain courses in an online format, but due to the cost involved to do this, I am compromising and offering my courses in a “correspondence” fashion. Correspondence courses are conducted long-distance vie email, text, phone, and video conferencing to cover foundational instruction and homework. Face-to-face meetings are typically, but not always, conducted at my practice here in Carrollton, Texas.
