There Are Many Reasons Why We Are The Oldest,
Largest and Strongest
Therapeutic Massage Training Program Around
The Healing Arts Center has been training professional massage therapists since 1990. We were in the forefront of the lobbying movement in the 1990's to bring the massage therapy profession under state licensure. For nearly 25 years, HAC has educated more successful licensed massage therapists than any other school around. While other schools have been closing their doors and putting their students on the street, HAC is expanding its programs.
This fall, The Healing Arts Center will start the first anywhere Free Cancer Clinic. Honor students who are near the end of their education along with volunteer graduates of HAC will come together to expel pain and anxiety from the bodies of those undergoing treatment for cancer. Students and graduates selected for Cancer Clinic will undergo special training to by a host of massage and medical professionals to learn how to safely treat various kinds of cancer patients.
The Healing Arts Center is preparing to offer a new series of advanced technique programs called Master Tracks. These ten week, 100 hour tracks will allow students who have already completed the 600 Massage Therapy Training Program (MTTP) at HAC or are received licenses through training at other schools to develop master level knowledge and skill in specific areas of practice. Master Tracks will cover single topics like sports massage, advanced energy work, medical massage and spa specialties. The Master Track series is due to begin in late 2015.
Why Size Matters
Students start out practicing on their class mates. When you have a lot of them, you learn about different body types and preferences. Also no two students see massage therapy in the same way. More classmates means a richer learning experience.
What's In A Name?
Most schools cannot talk about their "decades of experience" because they not been around that long - and may not be here much longer. Over the past 25 years, HAC has produced more licensed massage therapists than any other school in the region and has been the voice of the massage therapy profession for decades.
Learn How The Body Heals Itself
Our curriculum is broken up into five ten-week "level sessions" (our words for "terms" or semesters"). Each Level Session builds on the ones before it. During this time, students learn not only about massage technique, but anatomy, physiology, energy work, ethics, business and more.
