This comprehensive 768-hour program prepares students to become successful practicing bodyworkers by giving them a broad knowledge of both Eastern and Western theories and techniques. The program exceeds standards set by most state and municipal governments for licensing. Students learn basic massage theory and technique. They are also taught an Eastern paradigm of bodywork therapy that includes shiatsu and acupressure, along with contemporary Western modalities such as structural bodywork, trigger point therapy & rehabilitation massage, sports massage, and cranial sacral therapy.
The program includes extensive coverage of anatomy and physiology in order to give students a solid, technical, scientific understanding of the body – so that they can serve their clients well and be able to communicate with other health care professionals. Business and career development classes, along with training in laws and regulations, are also offered.
