Healing Spirits is a well-rounded and thorough massage training program, offering a 625-hour certification. Our program is designed for people who are interested in studying the field of massage therapy without having to relocate or interrupt their current occupation and/or family life.
We are a small grass-roots program which aims to meet the unique needs of each group and each individual in the group.
The intimate size of this program promotes in-depth learning on both personal and professional levels. Our supervisor to student ratio never exceeds 4:1. Attention is placed on versatility and creativity.
We at Healing Spirits place a great emphasis on helping each student find and develop their own style of practicing therapeutic bodywork so that it comes from the heart.
This is complemented by improving the student’s quality of touch, and therefore the quality of treatment given.
We recognize that learning massage therapy is quite different from learning many other skills. For this reason, we employ an alternative and eclectic teaching style that appeals to the kinesthetic faculties while honoring other types of understanding. It is our emphasis on experiential learning that shapes this practice-oriented program. Students will learn the theory and application of many different types of massage, leaving them equipped with the necessary skills for a successful practice in any environment.
Balance is the key concept at Healing Spirits.
We will explore how to do specific and technical work while maintaining the integrity and spirit of both client and therapist. We believe that personal awareness through touch is invaluable to the field of hands-on therapy. It is through this awareness, along with practical training, that inspiration for a life long career in massage therapy can evolve.
I have enjoyed my time at Healing Spirits so much. The supportive and nurturing environment allowed me to make a smooth transition from a 16-year career in finance to one in the healing arts. The flexibility of the schedule allowed me to continue contract work and do bodywork and homework when my schedule allowed. I would highly recommend this program for any self-motivated individual seeking to make a mid-life career change.
I have found much more than an education in my experience. Healing Spirits offers an incredible journey of finding oneself all the while gaining an amazing education. The instructors are giving more than just an education, they give so much of themselves and share their knowledge in a beautiful way - the willingness to share with the students such precious gifts has given me more than I could have asked for or ever expected. I am forever grateful to all the instructors and TA's that have helped to shape my future as a knowledgeable Massage Therapist with many tools in my bag! The program also offers great flexibility in all aspects - it truly is the best choice I've ever made.
"Healing Spirits outstands itself by being a small school. What it does not have in size, it has in heart space, professionalism, and variety of learning opportunities. You will be able to laugh, cry, learn, and explore here. You might have to give a piece of your self but you will get a much bigger piece in return that will stick with you forever."
"Healing Spirits is a very warm, educational environment that was felt immediately by me. This has allowed me to open up and trust this tight knit group of wonderful beings in order to ask questions in a comfortable setting which has also enabled me to further my own spiritual healing."
"This program has been a sacred experience. It has transformed me from the inside out.
It has multiplied my understanding of what true compassionate, healing, loving light is,
through the touch of hands on skin, and the intentions in the heart."
