30 Skills in 30 Days

Earle teaching

To mark MTI's 30th anniversary year in 2018, we are setting our members a challenge this November: learn 30 skills in 30 days.

As an organisation that has always placed a high value on applied knowledge, we are inviting our members to learn and use a series of techniques and methods.

The bite sized tips cover all aspects of massage practice: from treating frozen shoulder to completing a tax return, from how to do a home visit to marketing yourself to groups.

We will email out and post on our member Facebook group a new tip each day in November. Members can get together to practise the tips, work through them individually, or keep them as a reference book for future use. We welcome feedback, reviews, photos and videos throughout the 30 days.

Members can unsubscribe from the challenge if they don't wish to take part, an email will be sent out in October offering the chance to opt out.

Good luck and enjoy!

4 September update: for every skill you complete and send in to MTI Central, you'll receive 30 minutes of CPD. That's a total of 15 hours on offer, nearly your yearly total! It can either be under the individual study category or in a shared learning environment, if you work with other members. For each task, detail what you discovered and what you will do differently in your practice as a result. Email your write ups to the marketing office between 30 November and 30 December to be eligible for the CPD.

Hi Kate,

Sure thing, each skill will be emailed to you, so you can dip into them whenever you want.

Love Jenny x

Thanks Jenny and Anna, looking forward to this. Can we do this in retrospect on the days we are super busy and don't have time to look at the FB page? xKate

Wow a bite-size coverall, sounds great. Look forward to picking up some new skills :)

Thanks for your enthusiasm guys, looking forward to sending this out. Michelle, all current members will be emailed in October and asked if they want to opt out of the challenge. As long as you don't ask to be unsubscribed from the list, you'll be sent the info. Any more questions, let me know. Love Jenny x
