Massage Therapy Training
Our mission is to prepare each student for a rewarding career as a massage therapist, but it is also much more than that. We believe in fostering the student as a whole, both their head and their heart. During enrollment at our massage therapy school, students learn about community and communication, about both self and selflessness. We encourage curiosity, compassion, and mindfulness in our environment at all times.
We train you to become a massage therapist. We inspire you to explore your potential.
We support our students from the moment they submit their application to long after they graduate. We foster a safe environment where curiosity and compassion are encouraged by our experienced and dedicated staff.
Our students feel secure exploring the boundaries of self knowledge due to the holistic and nurturing environment that has been carefully curated and meticulously maintained.
Did you know that more and more doctors are referring their patients to massage therapists?
And that more and more insurance companies are covering massage therapy treatment?
Increased awareness of the health benefits of massage therapy may be one of the reasons behind such rapid growth in opportunities. The United States Department of Labor estimates that between now and 2024, job opportunities for massage therapists are expected to increase 22 percent—a rate the Dept. of Labor calls "much faster than average" compared to the average job growth rate of 7 percent for all other careers.

Students who enroll in the full-time track complete the program in 7 months. Classes are held Monday through Friday and we offer both a day and evening track.
We know that not everyone has the flexibility to attend school full-time, which is why we offer a part-time program that can lead you to licensure in 14 months. Part-time classes are held Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., with every fourth weekend off. In addition to class, both full and part-time students participate in the Student Clinic to get hands-on training and meet licensure requirements. Student Clinic hours vary according to campus and program and can include morning, evening, and weekend sessions.
