California Massage School Among The Top In US.
In keeping with our high standards of excellence, the National Holistic Institute is nationally accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. In fact, we were the first nationally accredited massage therapy school in California in the early 1980's and therefore the first massage school to offer federal financial aid in California. In addition, we have a number of additional approvals, licenses, and official relationships that benefit our students and graduates who want to learn massage and gain massage therapy certification.
One of the most apparent advantages that NHI has over other massage therapy schools in California is the opportunity it offers its students to gain hands-on practical experience through the NHI Student Clinic and Externship program. This is a very powerful part of our training as it gives you a chance to judge your potentials as a therapist and experience work pressures. Guidance is also given on how to utilize this education as a full time professional practice which is unlike the training at any massage school California.
Massage therapy is a 4000 year old therapy of curing chronic ailments. It follows some specific procedures by which we apply pressure on various parts of the body including muscles, tissues, ligaments and joints. It relieves the body from stress, pain and any kind of discomfort that the body may be undergoing. In cases, where medical therapies have failed, massage therapy has done wonders and is known to have increased the flexibility and workability of muscles, ligaments, and tissues of the body.
The popularity of massage can be judged by the fact that there are more than 100,000 massage therapists, practicing massage therapy in the United States. While massage therapy courses and programs vary from one state to another, on an average a massage therapy course includes at least 500 hrs of training.
