Specialty Certificate in Military Veteran Massage
NCBTMB is proud to partner with Crouse Hospital in Syracuse, NY to empower practicing massage therapists with the opportunity to achieve a Specialty Certificate in Military Veteran Massage—an exclusive certificate available to graduates of Crouse Hospital’s 80-hour CE Program. This program is currently only available to New York Licensed Massage Therapists.
A Specialty Certificate in Military Veteran Massage provides you with the education and experience necessary to offer safe, effective, and nurturing massage for those that experienced physical and/or psychological trauma while serving in the United States military during conflict and war. Such credentials empower you with access to rewarding career opportunities, increased compensation, and career longevity.
Using a clinical-based education model, Crouse Hospital uses a curriculum based on New York State Guidelines for Practice to guide students through group and self-directed learning, accompanied with guidance and modeling provided by experienced trainers. Students will explore the Guidelines applying six separate training modules focusing on Communication & Respect, Consent & Psychological Pressure, Competency & Scope of Practice, Boundaries & Power Differential, Discrimination, and Therapist Self Care. The program culminates with the NCBTMB Specialty Exam.
