Diane Kurtz LMT found her calling when she began teaching massage to students entering her profession in 2014! She soon realized this passion translated perfectly to continuing education and began offering her primary modality- Ashiatsu Massage in 2015. She expanded her CE offerings to include most of her other massage specialties and there are more to come… “When I find a technique or modality that enables me help so many of my own clients, I cannot wait to share it with other massage therapists!” 

Diane had been holding classes from various locations and knew that a centralized location offering a variety of classes from multiple instructors would be welcomed by many massage therapists and instructors! When the opportunity to open a facility like this came in the spring of 2019 she knew it was meant to be!

Diane knows that massage therapy education is a career investment and feels strongly students should get what they pay for! “As a CE student myself, I’ve experienced all of the frustrations. It is challenging to find relevant, practical classes in a convenient location. And practice time is key! I expect to leave a class prepared to use my new skills immediately and this is only possible when the majority of class time is spent on instructor supervised student practice.” All instructors offering classes at Massage CE Central structure their classes with this in mind- students will leave ready to begin practicing their new modality! We are constantly searching for the quality classes you want, taught by only the best instructors so look for more classes and instructors as we grow!
