Becoming a massage therapist at Healing Hands means more than practicing bodywork and learning anatomy. We strive to make your time with us meaningful as you join our community of healers.
As a student here, you will be supported in every way possible on your journey towards getting your certification.
Our support reaches beyond the classroom and into the personal lives of our students. The holistic compassion each instructor possesses reflects our devotion to each student discovering their potential as professional healers.
CFO and Co-Director, Paula, explains what a student can expect as a result of beginning their journey with us:
“So when you become certified as a Massage Therapist, you go out into the field, and you make a living doing a job you love.”
“Waking up in the morning and thinking ‘I wonder who I’m going to work on today. I wonder if it’s going to be a day where I’m going to have a lot of bad left knees to work on. That pregnant woman I worked on last week- I wonder how she’s feeling today.”
Massage therapists experience something different every time they work. No days are ever the same, which is what makes the career so exciting. By implementing genuine care for each patient, the job holds great meaning and value for each person.
Paula adds, “And you have that care for the job you’re doing, but it’s because you actually care for the people that you’re working on. And that really starts here. It starts by the care that a person coming to Healing Hands who’s just looking at us for the first time- we always want to take care of you.”
By showing compassion to our students, we hope that they can provide that same care for their clients.
“You are our customer; you’re our student –but we’re going to be with you for a year. You’re going to be experiencing what it’s like for fellow students to work on your body, as well as listening to what’s going on in your challenges in your life. Your instructors have many, many years of experience guiding you through what it’s going to be like to be a student here at Healing Hands.”
Healing Hands offers a unique experience for students, a holistic approach to learning.
“And we hope that when you leave the school, you never really leave. You continue to come back.”
Our Healing Hands community does not just include our current students, but also alumni that have been involved as far back as when the school began 20+ years ago.
The support you receive from instructors and peers does not stop when you graduate. We are constantly helping one another by posting job openings and any other opportunities that someone could benefit from. It’s a lifelong relationship that is special to only our school.
