In addition to our diploma program the school offers individual classes, continuing education, a wellness collective for student professional development, a herb lab, and a resource room. Some Instructors offer CONTINUING EDUCATION WITH CERTIFICATION AND DOCUMENTATION OF CE HOURS.
We welcome and encouraged school visits. Prospective students may visit once, or several times. A standard 1 Hour “sit in on a class” visit is free and may be scheduled (by appointment) from 11 am - noon when classes are in session.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 734-769-7794 to schedule your visit.
We strongly feel that education thrives in a supportive, inspiring setting, with structure, and the opportunity to seriously academically explore. The enjoyment and laughter we have experienced in our classes over the past 10+ years contributes to a healthy learning experience and an avenue for personal and professional healing.

Our students live the work of PROGRESSIVE AND CURRENT PROFESSIONAL BODYWORK/MASSAGE THERAPY PRACTICES throughout the class structure, while engaging with a portfolio of experiential academic assignments which are completed in their own time outside of class and under staff mentorship. As effective massage therapists, students also learn to heal their own ills, and graduate able to confidently help others through assessment, evaluation, treatment, and guidance.
Our classes do not meet every week. They typically meet in scheduled 3 day modules (Th/F/Sat from 10 am - 4:30 pm) approximately every other week, with a holiday and a short summer break scheduled. Complete schedules are found on the individual program's page.
