Holistic Massage School Celebrates 25 Years!

Holistic Massage School Celebrates 25th Anniversary


Founded by Paula and Neha Curtiss in 1992, Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (HH) celebrated its twenty-fifth Anniversary on Wednesday February 8th, 2017.  The school, which has classrooms in San Diego, Escondido, and Laguna Hills, boasts a 500-hour Massage Therapy and 1000-hour Holistic Health Program plus over 80 of today’s most popular massage and holistic health classes.  


Nationally accredited and state approved by the CAMTC, HH is considered a path-blazer in Holistic Health Education in Southern California. Over the past 25 years the school has earned a reputation for turning out some of the area’s most exceptional Massage Therapists, putting HH graduates in high-demand among employers. To date, the school has prepared over 7,000 students for successful careers in the Massage industry and is still going strong.


Working as Massage Therapists while raising a young family, Paula and Neha believed that Massage Therapy is a Healing Art as well as a Science.  Their vision was: To teach therapeutic bodywork so that the massage student not only learns the techniques, but is inspired by the art and craft of the work.  Toward that end, they developed curriculum that required students to experience both sides of the massage.  They strived to give students a comprehensive understanding of the structure and function of the body, while providing ample opportunity for them to gain hands-on experience.  Just as importantly, they would do so by creating a classroom environment conducive to trust, respect and joyful discovery.


When acknowledging the school’s 25th anniversary, Paula said, ““We’re very proud to have attracted Massage Therapy and Holistic Health educators who specialize in their subjects and have a tremendous respect for the Healing Arts.  They have been the driving force behind our success, not only imparting their knowledge and skills, but also by modeling the sensitivity and awareness necessary to become a solid practitioner.”  


If you have a passion for promoting holistic health and self-care, yet crave the autonomy of an ‘in-demand’ profession you can take anywhere, then consider the highly gratifying career of a Massage Therapist or Holistic Health Practitioner.
