“Becoming a successful Massage Therapist requires a genuine caring for people and a willingness to gain the knowledge and skills needed to make a difference!” That’s the philosophy of Paula Curtiss, Director for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (HHSHH). To date, Paula and her exceptional faculty have helped prepare more than 6,500 students for successful careers as Massage Therapists and Holistic Health Practitioners throughout Southern California.
Founded in 1992, HHSHH is one of the most referred schools for massage therapist training in the SoCal area. With campuses in Escondido and Laguna Hills, HHSHH has earned a reputation for turning out the areas’ most caring and competent Massage Therapists and Body-workers. As a result, the quantity, quality and variety of job opportunities received by our Career Placement Department is unrivaled by newer schools whose roots don’t run quite as deep.
The abundance of job opportunities aren’t the only reasons students choose HHSHH. The variety of financial aid options is another. Having earned many important National Accreditations, HHSHH is authorized to accept Federal Student Aid, Vocational Rehab, Unemployment, WIA, or VA educational funds on behalf of students who qualify. Students who fail to qualify for government funding may choose from three “in-house” payment plans HHSHH offers so anyone interested in a career in Massage can achieve their dream.
At HHSHH students also have program options. Students who need to get working fast may select our 500-Hour Massage Therapist Program which prepares the student for State Certification through the CAMTC in as little as 7 months. Students who can dedicate more time to their education may select our 1000-hour Holistic Health Practitioner Program which expands upon our basic Program with an addition 500 hours of classes in advanced techniques and related health practices to enhance their Massage Practice.
HHSHH offers an unprecedented class options! Unlike many other Massage Schools that offer a “standard” program of study, HHSHH students can help design their Program based on their own preferences. With over 80 massage and related holistic health classes to choose from, students can pursue ancient and traditional massage modalities as well as cutting edge Sports, Neuromuscular, or Energetic healing therapies. Those interested in Holistic Health classes may explore classes in Nutrition, Herbalism, Homeopathy, Aromatherapy, Therapeutic Stretching, Breath-work, and many more!
Last but not least, HHSHH offers a variety of scheduling options. 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.
