Every Ten Weeks The Headmaster of The Healing Arts Center Offers a Full-length Massage Training Class To Those Considering Massage Therapy Education. The Next Massage Essentials is November 18, 2017 From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Massage Essentials is a free workshop for those people considering massage therapy education so that they can "test-drive" the Healing Arts Center's highly unique Massage Therapy Training Program. HAC is the oldest, largest and most comprehensive massage therapy training program in the region. The school is known for blending top-shelf training in massage technique with holistic healing modalities such as Reiki, Pranic Healing and Transformational Breathwork. This multifaceted approach gives its graduates a much larger tool kit with which to create a successful professional career. Every HAC graduate is taught an entire term of Myofascial Release, an advanced massage technique, that can treat a wide spectrum of health issues from sports injuries to relieving the pain of mastectomy scars.

About The School:
HAC is committed to training massage therapists as healers and wellness professionals rather than low-pay workers for the pamper massage industry. The school is an outspoken advocate for the entire massage therapy profession as a bona fide healing art. As discount massage providers attempt to coax students into flash-in-the-pan 20 week programs only to direct them to low-paying jobs after graduation, HAC prepares its students for careers in higher-end clinics, alternative and complimentary medical facilities and, ultimately, to become independent massage providers.
While state law requires all massage therapy training to include some business and ethics, HAC's business class is taught by an instructor who actually wrote the textbook on ethics. This business class also features an entrepreneurial track designed to help massage therapists through the many legal and business issues involved in starting your own business and making it profitable.
While every school is required to have a student clinic, HAC is the only school with a Free Cancer Clinic that treats patients who are being treated for cancer by oncologists. Student cancer clinicians are selected for this honors status clinic after their third term and are given special training in providing care for cancer patients.
In addition to having a robust and diverse curriculum, HAC graduates are the happiest graduates anywhere. This is a testament to the deep personal transformation that occurs for everyone in this extraordinary training program. Students are taught how to heal others by first healing themselves. They are taught to meditate and how to control their own being before the connect with clients and patients. This exploration of the the true factors that create wellness extends beyond mere physical health is life-changing. Ask any HAC graduate. Really. Any HAC graduate.
The class begins at 10 a.m. and will last 4 hours, the same length as the classes offered in HAC's program. HAC does not do ten and twelve hour "cram days" like the short-format programs because a real professional massage therapist needs time to absorb lessons, practice and evolve their talent. For this reason our program is twelve (12) hours a week for fifty (50) weeks. This schedule allows for complete absorption training while leaving plenty of time for a full-time job so that students do not have overload themselves with student loans. Down-and-dirty training might be appropriate if all one wants to do is give back rubs, but to be a real massage therapist, it takes proper training by masters of the respective healing arts and this kind of training takes time.
HAC also has approximately 1,200 clients in its student clinic. Students start clinical training after their first one hundred hours of classes. Unlike, other schools, HAC believes that students learn by doing and our students spend forty (40) weeks in clinical training learning how to care for every possible body type. Furthermore, HAC has classes with as many as twenty-four students (we limit the size). This means instead of learning on the same two people in class, at HAC you are exposed to a broader and more diverse training experience from the first day.
