Holistic Massage School Commemorates Father’s Day 2024

Happy fathers dayThis Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16th, provides an opportunity to acknowledge and honor the thousands of fathers and father figures who chose Healing Hands School of Holistic Health for their education. They came seeking a well-rounded education in Massage and the Holistic Healing Arts, one that would give them choices for how to apply new skills.  They left with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to create a meaningful career as a Professional Massage Therapist, and we’re proud of their accomplishments.

Some of our father/graduates sought work at Massage Clinics using their knowledge of Circulatory Massage and Deep Tissue Manipulations. An in-demand career, Professional Massage Therapists enjoy a starting salary of $30 to $45 hourly. Just as importantly, they experience pride in making a positive impact on the health of those in their communities. Once they are Certified, Massage Therapists may work as a solo-practitioner from an office or through a mobile business. It is also a lucrative “side hustle” for Fathers who have alternate careers.

Father/graduates with a special interest in Anatomy, Physiology and Sports, were drawn to bodywork and modalities that are considered advanced. Healing Hands offers courses in Myofascial Release, Passive Joint Manipulations, Neuro-muscular and Trigger Point therapies that get to the root of musculo-skeletal imbalances. Accordingly, they gravitate to work at Sports and Rehab clinics where their skills are greatly needed. Others who enjoyed the excitement of being “on-site” at sports events, chose to work directly with professional athletes and competitive sports teams.

Let me not forget the many father/graduates who gravitated to modalities that focus on moving energy through the body’s meridians. These include Shiatsu, TuiNa, Thai Massage and Reiki.  These modalities offer practitioners an entirely new body of knowledge to affect positive change in their clients.

Regardless of their specialty, these men demonstrate an abundance of empathy, knowledge, skills, and dedication. All qualities for which the best Dads are known!

Some of these men came to Healing Hands fresh out of high school. They wanted a meaningful career that offered a living wage.  Others came from different branches of the Military, via Veterans Educational Benefits. These transitioning veterans trained for a career that could positively impact fellow soldiers with PTSD. Their dedication to service was evident, and the faculty at Healing Hands applauded their mission.

Healing Hands students may choose from two Certification Programs and more than 40 Massage and Holistic Health courses. Classes are held during the day, on weekends and as night classes.
