You can now add techniques such as kinesiology taping, craniosacral therapy and animal neuro-myofascial release (AMNR) technique to your practice without having to travel! Dr. Angelique Barbara offers these online continuing education courses to animal bodyworkers through a web course host that allows the student to start the course whenever it is convenient to them and to complete it at their own pace. “Our courses never expire”, Dr. Barbara says, “allowing our students to take as much time as needed to complete them”. “The other great benefit”, continues Dr. Barbara, “is that students can log back in to the course at any point in the future to review the material and see what new material has been added”.
You may be wondering how one can adequately learn these techniques through an online format? Dr. Barbara explains that she has developed a system of learning that is highly effective. This system consists of watching lectures, reading information, watching step by step demonstrative videos, practicing the techniques and then re-watching the demo videos. Students have their technique applications assessed through video submissions and case studies. “The great thing about taking one of our online courses is that you can watch the videos as many times as you need to and can practice the techniques while watching the videos off a tablet or your phone”, says Dr. Barbara. “I have had students who have attended one of my in person seminars and then later took one of my online courses, state that they learned more through the online course because they were able to review the material, while they had a tendency to forget things from the in person course”.
Dr. Barbara has been teaching animal bodywork courses for over ten years, but just launched her online courses several years ago. Since that time she has acquired students in over 30 countries and continues to receive positive feedback. Maria Sorgie, an equine sports massage therapist who took Dr. Barbara’s equine kinesiology taping certification course claims that it was the best thing she ever invested in. Dr. Barbara says that the thing she loves the most about teaching online courses is that she is able to spread her knowledge vast distances and has the opportunity to interact with people who would not have been able to travel to her for a seminar.
