  • Long Healthy Careers: The average time length for a staff instructor at Healing Hands School is 10 YEARS! Take a look at any spa, any facility, how many of that staff have been on-board for 10 or more years?  How much experience do they have helping students grow, learn and flourish?  We have instructors who have been with Healing Hands for TWENTY years!  They love the school, love to educate, and love to participate in a strong community of healers.  When you take courses at Healing Hands, you know you can expect a fun, energizing and inspiring classroom experience.

  • Inspiration: “That was the best Instructor I’ve ever had in my life!” – is a quote we often receive from students. Instructors here are dynamic.  If you do not understand a subject matter – just ask! And the Instructor will find a different way to explain the curriculum to you.  When a course is over, students often have a happy/sad feeling.  Happy to have received such an amazing instruction, sad that it’s over.  When you are done with a course, we hope you feel inspired to bring Massage and Holistic Health into the world around you.
