We created this unique massage therapy approach to train conscious, intuitive, and versatile massage therapy practitioners. Massage therapy education has been our primary business for over 25 years. Every faculty and staff member at our school is passionately committed to supporting the personal growth and professional development of our students and each other. Our holistic massage therapy program is designed to provide you with the best education you can get for your body, mind, and spirit. We offer you comprehensive and challenging classes including Massage, Kinesiology & Palpation, Anatomy & Physiology, Hydrotherapy, and Business for the Licensed Massage Therapist. You will be exposed to at least 10 popular modalities with an emphasis on efficient body mechanics to support a long and healthy massage therapy career. We exceed the highest standard of massage therapy education in the industry.

Graduates of Educating Hands should be well prepared to pass the National Certification Examination and attain the license to practice massage in the state of Florida. Students complete over six-hundred class hours in a range of subjects including kinesiology & palpation, anatomy, physiology, a range of massage techniques, business, Florida state law, and HIV-AIDS.  All students participate at a student clinic.

The school’s mission is established as the following:

  • To support the personal and professional growth and wellness of each person who chooses massage of other natural healing options to benefit themselves and/or others
  • To teach the knowledge, skills, and abilities to successfully enter the massage profession while providing an atmosphere that supports the personal development of each student;
