Welcome to the Home Study Courses Resource Center

The Home-Study Courses Resource Center, sponsored by the Freedom From Pain Institute, is designed to provide the latest news, information, articles and tools related to home-study continuing education courses for massage and bodywork therapists.

Home-study courses provide working massage therapists and bodyworkers with the ability to expand their repertoire and earn continuing education credits at a time and place that is convenient and affordable for them. Home study, or distance learning, has gained popularity within the past few years, as massage professionals seek more ways to receive higher education in a timely and cost-effective manner.

The Freedom From Pain Institute is dedicated to the research and treatment of chronic pain conditions. In his duty as executive director, Erik Dalton, Ph.D., shares his broad therapeutic background in massage, Rolfing and osteopathy in his entertaining and informative pain-management continuing education workshops, books and videos.
