Continuing Education

Keep your massage skills and techniques up to date with advanced Continuing Education classes.

As a licensed massage therapist staying current on new massage skills and techniques is essential to allow you to better help your clients more and help you grow your practice. As one of the only in-state providers of massage continuing education you can find a variety of classes offered through LHAA without having to make the large expenses of travel to get great classes! Our classes are small and focused and taught by experienced LMT’s both nationally and locally. It is hard to capture the experience of a hands-on CE class online so we hope you will take advantage of the exceptional classes we have to offer! Our classes are designed to help professionals stay on top of the industry when it comes to growing demands or specific, technical needs.

Classes are generally offered on weekends with instruction from LHAA faculty or from nationally recognized continuing education providers.
