The Therapeutic Spa Certification Training offers the opportunity to promote wellbeing and balanced health by incorporating Spa Treatments into your massage therapy practice.

In the past two decades, massage therapy has gained mainstream recognition as a highly valuable therapeutic modality for pain relief, relaxation, and rehabilitation. Complementary therapies such as aromatherapy, hydrotherapy, and several other spa treatments also offer numerous applications and benefits. Due to the increased popularity of these modalities, they are now in great demand and are widely promoted and practiced in the spa industry business.

While we see continued increases in personal and societal stress levels, as well as a rise in chronic illness, we find more and more people turning to holistic integrative healing methods to assist them in regaining their health. The physical demand that therapeutic massage places on the massage therapist also calls us as professionals to diversify our practices and add services that benefit our clients and add longevity to our careers. With these points in mind, the Potomac Massage Training Institute is now offering a new and unique advanced training in Spa Therapies.

PMTI’s Therapeutic Spa Certification Series offers the opportunity to promote wellbeing and balanced health by incorporating Spa Therapies into our massage practices. This 75-hour certification training is presented in four course modules each being held over a weekend for

Frequently Asked Questions…. What is a Certification Series?

PMTI’s advanced training is more comprehensive and detailed than your usual continuing education class. Building on the successful methods of PMTI’s Professional Training Program, these courses will include homework and assessments/exams – both academic and practical. If you complete the hours, pass the required assignments and are paid in full, you will be awarded a “Certificate of Achievement”* at the end of Module IV.** You will be able to add “PMTI-Certified in Therapeutic Spa Therapies” to your credentials. In addition, eachsec tion of the series is approved by the NCBTMB for continuing education hours. If you do not complete all sections of the series, students agree not to claim this “Certification.”

*NCBTMB guidelines state that a Certificate of Achievement is awarded in a course where a final examination is passed by the student. ** Students who havepreviously taken Hot Stone Massage with Shoshanna DiBetta at the Potomac Massage Training Institute may waive this Module from the Certification Series.
