Spread Wellness with an Education in Massage Therapy

Provide relaxation and stress-relief to clients with natural products and remedies as a massage therapist. Our program* teaches a traditional Ayurvedic approach using pure flower and plant essences to rejuvenate and help clients achieve a natural harmony. Ayurvedic medicine is a holistic healing system originating in India and practiced for hundreds of years. It’s based on the belief that health and wellness are created from a delicate balance among the mind, body and spirit. To help others achieve that blissful state, consider a career as a massage therapist!

Our 600-hour program includes a curriculum with:

  • Massage techniques
  • Business development
  • Wellness expertise
  • Retail knowledge

Due to the physical nature of our program, you can expect a balance between class time, live demonstrations, and practice on the clinic floor with real clients under the direct supervision of licensed educator professionals.

You’ll also receive a kit with all the tools and products needed to complete our massage program. The state licensing fees are included too!

*Not all programs available at all locations.
