Dear Prospective Student,
Thank you for your interest in learning massage at Wellness Massage
Institute. Ours is the most established and comprehensive program in
the area with over 25 years of students graduated and working in
spas, chiropractic offices, physical therapy businesses, and private
practices. The school’s former 500-hour curriculum included
training in anatomy and physiology as well as effective manual
techniques that build solid, comprehensive skills. In keeping
consistent with the National Board Standards, we are moving to a
750-hour program only offered once a year from January to November.
We will be adding more clinical and practice hours to fine tune
skills with clients. We are excited to be able to bring in people
with structural issues who really need skilled hands to help them.
We will also be adding more Kinesiology to our deep-tissue work.
Our focus is on therapeutic massage, so our training includes two
forms of Deep-Tissue Therapy as well as Swedish, Shiatsu, Prenatal
Massage, Reiki I, Cupping, Thai Massage, Hydrotherapy, and some
Reflexology techniques. Massage benefits the structure and
physiology of the whole body, not just the muscles. As clients
become more aware of how stress shows up in their physical body,
massage therapists become catalysts for holistic improvements in
their lives. It is incredibly rewarding work.
We look forward to providing you with a tour of our building on Main
Street and answering any questions as you decide if massage training
is in your future. We understand that you have a choice of schools
and are confident that our professional and compassionate approach
will make our course your gateway to a rewarding new career.
