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:
|Hot & Cold Stone Massage|
|Music & Massage|
|Survey of Energy Therapies|
|Hydrotherapy & Heliotherapy|
|Student Clinical Practice Hours|
3 Nights per week from 6:00PM – 10:45PM + student clinical hours
“This is the greatest school I have ever been in, from a teaching and humanity point of view.“
