“The key to success as a Massage Therapist is basic, a genuine caring for the people you serve and a willingness to gain the therapeutic knowledge and skills to make a positive difference!” That’s the philosophy of Paula and Neha Curtiss, Founding Directors for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (HHSHH), and one that’s helped them prepare more than 6,000 students for successful careers as Massage Therapists (MTs).
Founded in 1992, HHSHH is one of the oldest schools for massage therapist training in the SoCal area. Boasting two campus locations; one in Escondido and one in Laguna Hills, HHSHH has a track record for training and inspiring the areas’ most caring and competent Massage Therapists and Body-workers. As a result, the quantity, quality and type of job opportunities received is unrivaled by newer schools whose roots don’t run quite as deep.
Great job opportunities aren’t the only reasons students choose HHSHH. Another is the school’s many National Accreditations that makes all classes worthy of Continuing Educational Credits (CEUs) and transferrable to other accredited Programs. It also allows HHSHH to accept Federal Student Aid, Vocational Rehab, Unemployment, WIA, or VA educational funds on behalf of the students who qualify.
When it comes to accommodating schedules, HHSHH is beyond compare. Here, students have the option of attending classes during the day, evenings or on weekends. They may also attend on a full-time or part-time basis and take classes individually or as part of a formal Program. HHSHH offers both a 500-hour Massage Therapy Program for fast State licensure, and a 1000-hour Holistic Health Practitioner Program that takes massage skills to a higher level. Flexible class schedules is why HHSHH is the go-to school for new and professional MT’s seeking CEUs for verification through NCBTMB.
The main reason students choose HHSHH is the variety of classes offered, and the unparalleled expertise of HH Instructors. With over 80 Massage and related Holistic Health classes offered, HHSHH has the curriculum to assure each student’s ability to pursue their desired area of specialty. These include the usual work environments such as Resorts, Day Spas and Massage Clinics, plus new and emerging arenas such as: Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Sports Teams, Doctors, Chiropractors, Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Rehab Centers, Gyms, Wellness Centers, and corporate offices.
In 2015, the Department of Labor predicted an increase of 30,000 new MT jobs by 2023 with salaries ranging between $25 and $45 an hour to start. That makes the profession of Massage Therapist a financially viable career that offers job security as well. So, if your New Year’s resolutions include finding a satisfying career that can also pay your bills, … Create a Positive Career Change with HHSHH!
