FAQs: Massage Classes

Curiouser and Curiouser

We love curiosity and want to be able to answer all your questions about massage classes. Here are questions that we often hear about our massage classes. We’ve also prepared a World School General FAQs page (Frequently Asked Questions) that we encourage you to check out as well.

This is one of the most important and most ignored topics in the healing arts. We’re so glad you’re curious. This topic deserves an article and we’ve written a short one for you which you can access through this link.

In our best attempt to summarize an answer for you, here goes: World School has dozens of courses on self-healing for some very important reasons, both therapeutic and personal. It is well known in clinical circles of all helping professions that at one level, virtually everyone who enters the healing arts does so because, at least in part, they want to facilitate healing and growth for others because they themselves at unconscious levels are trying to heal themselves by dealing with their own pain.

If the therapist/coach fails to recognize and deal with this, it often leads to unnecessary and painful consequences for both the therapist and client. For the client, therapist ignorance can lead to the deepening of client unconsciousness as well as reactivation of painful and self-limiting patterns of thought, emotion and behavior. For the therapist his/herself, it can lead to career burn out, loss of self-esteem, poor emotional boundaries and deeply unfulfilled relationships.

Conversely, when these issues are addressed with the advanced therapeutic techniques available today, ones that we provide you at our school, therapists and coaches and counselors can not only access self-healing but literally fulfill their personal destiny as an authentic and powerful contributor in their own life and the lives of everyone they meet.

The key to success in the healing arts depends on your openness and willingness to do your own personal growth work. The basis for healing is the work you do on yourself. Learn more…

If the day of class that you miss is part of a larger program, you are allowed to miss a certain number of massage classes within each program and still complete your program. The amount you can miss varies based on the program and is covered in orientation and our catalog.
