Massage Therapy


Our wellness instructors value the importance of understanding all types of salon & spa care. This includes the healing art of massage therapy. As a result, our massage course prepares students to take the state licensing exam and go on to a career in massage therapy.

Aveda’s goal is overall wellness for our guests and students. Therefore, A part of entire wellness is feeling good on the outside as well as the inside. Massage is one way to achieve inner wellness that emanates outward. With our use of the Aveda body care line, students can become well versed in the connectedness of mind and body.

More importantly, our goal is to help students achieve their aspirations of becoming a professional massage therapist. In addition, students have the opportunity to work with quality Aveda products that are made to keep not only the environment safe, but skin healthy. 


Our student’s kits are updated to match better quality materials that are released on a case-by-case basis so that students are always working with new and improved equipment. Also, so that the curriculum is up to date on current trends, and new techniques.
