Our staff tend to favor clinical, results-oriented procedures, over traditional “feel good” treatments. Our program is specially designed to offer extensive hands-on experience. Providing our students opportunities to work on different people and skin types, while practicing with multiple highend product lines

Experienced Massage Professionals

The Advanced 750-hour Massage Therapy Program requires that instructional staff be experienced in a very broad spectrum of modalities, from Contemporary Massage and Bodywork to Spa Therapies and Sports Massage. Although this program is very popular among estheticians and skincare professionals, the instructors and curriculum lean more towards wellness and health benefits of massage over spa therapies.
