How long will it take me to complete my program?

How long a given program takes depends mainly upon how much time you want to dedicate to the program and the length of the program. You can attend part-time or full time. Any of our program comparison tables or program summaries will tell you how long the program is expected to take on a part-time, 12-20 hour per week basis.

How will I pay for my program?

The fact is, very, very few students have the ability to pay for their education on their own when they first have the desire to start healing massage school. Yet they find a way based in one part on the ways that we’ve found to support you and in another part on the depth of their desire–which has a way of moving mountains.

We are committed that you find a way to graduate debt-free even if you cannot yet pay for your education at the start.

Please visit us and meet with one of our magical financial wizards (we call them our admissions advisors) to learn how our students have found a way to graduate debt-free. We think you will be surprised at how easy and possible it is for you to afford a career you love.

What’s the difference between a program and a brief massage therapy intensive?

Intensives are either a course held over a very short period of time such as a weekend or a series of courses held over one or a few weeks. A program involves multiple courses typically held over a longer period of time and usually involves more hours.

Intensives are a great way to get started in a career more quickly or to test your level of interest and enjoyment of massage as a career. Additionally, many people do attend our intensives for personal development–this is a great use of an intensive. Massage training moves us out of our analytical left-brain orientation into an integrated left-and right brain lifestyle. Many people take an intensive to get started earning money and then take more hours by adding on individual courses over time.

If your goal is a career in massage therapy, you will want to eventually complete a full program of at least 500 hours to ensure you possess the skills and training necessary to have a sustainable massage practice and satisfy requirements for practice in many states.
