Massage has always been a healing art, meaning there is a wholeness and connection to the person on the different levels of mind, body, and spirit. Anatomy and Physiology is an integral part of massage study, however, the most optimal massage is when a therapist can integrate this clinical knowledge with a caring, nurturing connection to the client, working from the heart with good intention. Most massage therapist are usually hired in a more positive environment associated with, the holistic health industry where the focus is wellness through preventative health and stress reduction.
We accept up to 20 students. This allows the instructors to spend time and personally help the students understand the material. We spend time creating new and fun ways to remember the information. In addition the massage school coordinator is always accessible to the students by text or cell phone.
Michigan is now a licensed state for massage therapy. Look for a school that offers a minimum t least 500 contact hours in classroom, so you can be assured you will be prepared for taking and passing the required test. We make sure you are prepared for a Michigan license as well becoming board certified by the NCBTMB, a national organization, if you opt to want that.
Our weekend format allows you to be alert and able to comprehend much better than working all day and going to school at night. Our classes are Fri 6-10, and from 9-6 every other weekend.
Our instructors are extremely experienced, nationally certified and Michigan licensed. Their expertise not only lies in their teaching massage but by the busy clientele they have. They will be able to mentor you. By their experience, they learned all the special applications of massage that you can’t find written in a text book.
We know the desire most people have when they enter this field, and the challenges that lie ahead to build a full clientele. Most therapists work as independent contractors or their own business, so it’s imperative why a strong business curriculum is absolutely required. We prepare you for this. We have already built the successful model, Center for the Healing Arts. Charlotte Irwin is a successful entrepreneur and massage therapist and she shares her 20 year of business and massage knowledge with you.
Plus an added bonus! You receive two certifications, one in massage therapy and the other as a reflexologist. Most massage therapist leave school and then take an added program in reflexology. You get both for the cost of massage school. We hope you consider our school as the one for you.
