Students of Healing Spirits who have successfully completed the Healing Spirits massage training program by meeting all of the above graduation requirements will receive a Certification of Completion and be considered Certified Massage Therapists.


Healing Spirits meets the requirements needed for graduates to take the Massage and Bodywork Licensure Examination (MBLEX) and/or the equivalent National Certification Exam (NCE).  Students are prepared for both exams via practice tests throughout the school year.

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."

-Pernille Scherer

 "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."
