Holistic Massage Therapy Program
Our philosophical foundation is one of holism, the sense that we are greater than the sum of our parts. We are body, mind and spirit and in this way we engage from and connect with our whole being to the whole being of others. The design of our curriculum reflects the premise that the inner wisdom of the practitioner is key to success in Massage Therapy.

Our goal is to train the student to perform Body-Work skills with excellence, grace, sensitivity and ease based on in depth knowledge of the human body and understanding the role and importance of the body-mind connection. We believe this distinguishes outstanding quality therapists from routine technicians.

The key to our effective quality training is a relaxed, supportive environment that is conducive to learning and the development of the individual. This is the atmosphere that we provide. An Educating Hands graduate is more than adequately prepared to successfully pass any of the Florida State approved exams and become a Licensed Massage Therapist in the State of Florida. We are proud to announce that Educating Hands currently has a 100% pass rate of the state board exam!

The elements of our program are presented in an integrated and logically sequential fashion. This promotes continuity and easier understanding of the material. Curriculum design, emphasis on personal growth and small class size (no more than 18 students per teacher) promote a sense of community and support a dynamic, interactive learning environment. Each group journeys together through the entire program from start to graduation.

Our program strongly focuses on Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology & Palpation, as well as providing student clinic and covering over 10 different massage techniques including:

Swedish massage
Chair Massage

Our students are better prepared to meet the needs of their future clientele and the demands of the professional environment through classes focused on the holistic integration of the mind, body, emotion and spirit.

The learning environment is professional and academically rich socially and spiritually. I would recommend Educating Hands to anyone interested in acquiring knowledge, true love, and passion for the Healing Arts.”


My life has changed because of the things I learned at Educating Hands. I am still going strong 15 years later!


Even if you’re clueless (like I was) you’ll be cultivated into being a therapist by some of the most intelligent, interesting and beautiful beings one could encounter today. I extend my deepest thanks and appreciation to my instructors and classmates for my remarkable experience at Educating Hands.


Educating Hands is not just a school, it is a journey not only of becoming a massage therapist but one of personal growth and self discovery. Deciding to attend has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.


This is the greatest school I have ever been in, from a teaching and humanity point of view.
