Would you like to complete a high quality massage therapy training with minimal investment allowing you professional access to a healthy, fulfilling, flexible career?
The spa industry in the United States is a multi-billion dollar ($12.8 billion in 2010) industry and growing, according to statistics from the American Bodywork and Massage Professional organization.
The 2013, U.S. Bureau of Labor expects the massage therapy profession to grow by 20% in the coming years.
All US states, except 4, have laws and regulations requiring minimally 500 hours of professional massage therapy training.
This training combines online learning and hands-on learning to give you an excellent start as a professional massage therapist.
Study with Christine Tinner, a highly experienced world-class massage therapist who has 20 years of teaching experience plus doctoral level training. Lotus Education Institute, approved and regulated by the Colorado Division of Private Occupational Schools, offers state-of-the art professional massage therapy training utilizing a combination of online massage therapy classes and hands-on classes, also known as a hybrid educational format. It is unrealistic to think that learning a three-dimensional hands-on profession can be learned solely online. However, the online massage therapy classes at Lotus Education Institute are designed to be as interactive and as engaging as possible utilizing sight, sound, and touch. Some online massage therapy classes offer correspondence courses plus some hands-on training. Some online massage therapy programs are 100% virtual with no personal guidance or supervision. Lotus Education Institute’s hybrid massage therapy classes provide the best possible learning experience for a distance massage therapy student.

At Lotus Education Institute, online classes use Canvas, a premier software for online learning. Canvas allows students to read, chat, discuss, take quizzes, build interactive pages, view, listen, record videos, and many other amazing activities which create a uniquely engaging online massage therapy learning experience. Canvas operates efficiently with minimal technological or internet speed requirements. Canvas is used increasingly by public schools and colleges nationwide.
Online massage therapy classes allow students to study at convenient times, learn in a comfortable familiar environment, learn at an individual speed and pace, and have access to simulating interactive learning materials. In the Lotus Education Institute massage therapy training, students can study 7 of the 10 courses at home, in the library, on their smart phone, or anywhere they wish at convenient times. Three massage therapy training courses, each 50 hour week-long intensives, are taught in person in Basalt, Colorado. It is easy to create an efficient schedule, maintaining current employment, not having to move, and studying at times that work for your schedule. Online massage therapy classes also allow students to read and study at their own pace but students are given specific deadlines. The classes have weekly due dates, which help students make progress and finish courses. Finally, attending online massage therapy classes provides students with many opportunities to utilize the internet, videos, and interactive virtual textbook activities which stimulate and enhance learning. Some people find a hybrid massage therapy training more fun and more convenient than attending a physical massage therapy training in person.
Students of Lotus Education Institute's online 500 hour professional massage therapy program can expect to make up the cost of their education after offering approximately 50 hours of massage. The total program can be done in as little as two months or students can take up to one year. For minimal time and financial investment, students can be professional massage therapists earning money and enjoying a rewarding career.
