The AMTA-CT Chapter is bringing in Steve Jurch to teach a one day, in-person sports massage class! This class is one of the required components of NCBTMB’s Sports Massage Certification program.

The class will be July 30 at CCMT in Newington from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break at noon. Keep your eyes open for an Eventbrite sign-up, coming soon.

Why be certified?  Read below.

Why Be Certified?
True, our clients don’t know what certification really means. However, NCBTMB is the first organization to begin to qualify and quantify the educational requirements to be certified in a massage specialty. The medical field has baselines like this for MDs that are specialists, and NCBTMB is helping to advance the massage field and bring it more in-line with the medical field. And we all know: Massage is Good Medicine!
