Continuing Education for Bodyworkers

Sarah has joined forces with Katie Roach of Alton, Illinois, and Naa-Dodoa Ankrah of St. Louis, Missouri to bring continuing education to bodyworkers and massage therapists. Together, these fabulous ladies are known as Tres Ochas.

Their mission is to spread the love of bodywork and massage to both professionals and the novice student. Tres Ochas has decided to not seek certification or credentialing from the powers that be. This is because they have noticed a particular way in which the students and teachers interact with one another based on the assumption that one must issue CEUs (Continuing Education Credits) in exchange for funds. The attitude too often becomes one of expectation and goal orientation of "finishing" or "completing" study of a particular topic.

Tres Ochas believes that study is never complete. They do not certify anyone to do anything. That is not their goal. Rather, they encourage learning for the sake of learning and fully support all institutions and regulations already in place. Basically, don't take their classes because you want to be certified in anything--take their classes because the subject matter and instructors are compelling and passionate about life long learning.

Classes range from Thai bodywork, sound healing, self care workshops, yoga, body mechanic classes, and meditation.  Please send us an email and let us know what continuing education classes you would like to see!
