As the alternative health market continues to expand, health professionals and bodyworkers are looking for new modalities to help their clients. Pure Fascia recognized a need for high-quality online instruction in the field of structural integration. Pure Fascia approached o/e for help with a new business venture to create and distribute e-learning courses for massage therapists, physical therapists, and other bodyworkers wishing to enhance their practices with high-quality continuing education. Pure Fascia chose o/e largely because of their experience with creating, certifying, marketing, and administering education solutions to the public at large.
o/e proposed a solution that would not only allow for dissemination of the course to a large and interested learner population, but that would also award learners with credit towards professional licensing renewal. The Unlocking Structural Integration course was developed as an interactive continuing education offering. o/e’s design approach is for busy professionals looking to refresh their basic anatomy and physiology knowledge while introducing new topics to expand on that knowledge. The fully responsive course was developed with scenario-driven learning situations, video-based instruction, and interactive exercises to give learners a truly engaging and meaningful experience. o/e’s course has been approved and recognized by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) and the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) for continuing competence and continuing education credit for professionals in over thirty states across the U.S.
Student response to the course has been overwhelmingly positive. As one of the few truly interactive online continuing education courses currently approved and offered for bodyworker continuing education, Unlocking Structural Integration brings learner-centric design and performance-based learning to a new audience. While the challenges of creating instruction that satisfies the requirements of a diverse learning audience were present at the design phase, learners and certifying bodies have agreed that the course meets or exceeds learning requirements for all of these audiences. Six months after program launch, the Unlocking Structural Integration course has been completed by a unique learner mix across more than a dozen states.
“o/e has exceeded all expectations as a business partner. The o/e team has been instrumental in helping with the vision and execution of Pure Fascia’s course offerings, and I’m pleased to be able to bring this topic to a wider audience with the Unlocking Structural Integration course.”
