Continuing Education for Massage – Albany, NY

Continuing education is essential to help massage therapists provide clients with the best possible experience. Workshops allow therapists to train in other areas of the massage therapy field or in new techniques.

Another benefit of continuing education workshops is that they help therapists stay interested and perform their work with more enthusiasm, skill and quality technique, which attracts more clients and makes the therapist more valuable to an employer.

Instructor(s): Mike Catellier, LMT.

Mike is a New York State licensed massage therapist since 2013. He graduated from Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy. Like many massage therapist, his goal during bodywork treatment sessions are to incorporate deep tissue techniques into the massage that help relieve the clients’ pain or help clients feel more relaxed to alleviate stress. Deep tissue massage is something that clients will requests often. Sometimes clients are not aware of how deep tissue feels or they indicated that deep tissue massages may have hurt them before and tend to stay away from it. With this class, the goal is to teach clients that deep tissue should not be painful, it should be therapeutic.

Mike has had owned his own business for a few years and has worked in a spa setting. His time in the military along with my career outside of the military has also given me experience to work with multiple people and in multiple settings. He also has over 10 years’ experience as a computer/network technician.

He dedicates himself to massage and bodywork as this is where his passion lies. He knows from first-hand experience how therapeutic massage and bodywork can be, on many levels, and he deeply rewarding to be able to offer this service and now wants to share his experiences with you!
