New Freedom, PA (PRWEB) April 30, 2012. OAKWORKS Inc., the premier U.S. manufacturer of spa, massage and medical equipment, has reported on the success of its Oakworks Educational Series of massage therapy online continuing education video shorts.
“We are very pleased with the response to our initiative. Our goal is to build a large free library of massage therapy training knowledge that will help therapists understand the wide range of options available for helping their clients,” said Jeff Riach, CEO of Oakworks.
Over the last year, 130 videos have been created by more than 20 leading massage therapy continuing education providers. The videos can be found on Oakworks website, www.massagetables.com, and its YouTube site, www.youtube.com/oakworksinc. Each video is basically a mini massage workshop, typically lasting a few minutes and covering one area of a larger body of knowledge in depth. Viewers get a good idea of the massage technique and how it is done, along with the benefits for their clients. The educators are all approved CEU providers trained in advanced massage therapy education, so viewers are able to see them in action and decide if they want to attend a more detailed hands-on workshop offered by the educator. Oakworks plans to double the number of licensed massage therapist training instructors and massage workshop videos in the next year along with securing more outlets for distribution of this free resource.
Riach went on to say, “Oakworks has been serving the massage therapy profession for 35 years, and it has been good to us. We wanted to give something back and I am a strong supporter of education in every facet of life. Being a lifelong learner, always finding new ways to do things and new things to do, is key to personal success and happiness. It is very gratifying to see we can make a difference.”
