“As of January 1st, 2015, California law requires Massage Therapists to obtain licensure after graduating from an accredited massage training program and before beginning work as a Massage Therapist”, said Harmony Curtiss, Branch Manager for the Laguna Hills Campus of Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (HH). “That law also requires students to complete a minimum of 500 hours of study, up from 250, and pass the standardized MBLEX Exam. As expected, the new law has sent many Massage Therapists scrambling to find a qualified school to help them meet the new requirements. We want to spread the word that HH can help”, she added.
Founded in 1992 with campus locations in Escondido and Laguna Hills, HH’s school has met the stringent criteria necessary to qualify as an Accredited Educational Provider by the NCBTMB. That means, all courses offered through HH are transferable and worthy of Continuing Education Credits. In addition, HH has been offering a Standardized Test Practice Review for years. Initially designed to prepare students for National Certification, the review class has since been updated and expanded to ensure a passing grade on the current MBLEX Exam.
HH’s Standardized Test Practice Review class provides students with a comprehensive plan of study. This includes, a review of Anatomy and important anatomical terms, system functions, modality specific information and plenty of practice tests. This review not only reinforces lessons learned, it helps students retain the information better, which boosts their self-confidence as well as their test scores.
According to Paula Curtiss, Director for HH, the Test Practice Review course has proven to be essential to helping students pass their state exam. The 16-hour course may be part of HH Nationally Accredited Programs, or taken “a-la-carte” at either the Escondido or Laguna Hills campus. The next class, offered at HH Laguna Hills Campus, begins on November 7th from 6-10pm and is now open for registration.
During the past 26 years, HH’s top-notch Instructors have prepared more than 6,600 students for successful careers as Massage Therapists and can do the same for you. Offering two Programs and over 80 Massage and Holistic Health classes, HH students can train for a rewarding career in less than a year!
