Massage is unquestionably a hands-on field, and at NHI we believe that’s how it should be taught. As a student in our program you’ll work on the public, under the guidance of licensed instructors, in our on-campus clinics. You’ll feel comfortable and fully prepared to transition from being a student to working as a massage therapy professional after gaining so much direct, real world experience before you graduate.
This program is designed to fit the needs of busy adult learners. We understand the lives our students lead, and how important it is to have balance. Many students are working, taking care of family and/or juggling other commitments while they attend school. Choose the schedule that best fits your lifestyle.
The full-time program can be completed in 8 months.
The part-time program can be completed in 10 months or 12 months.
Upon completion of this program, graduates are fully prepared and qualified to take the MBLEX exam required for California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) Certification.
After completing 500 hours of the program, you'll be eligible to begin the application process for CAMTC certification. Once you’re certified you can work in the massage therapy field. If you become certified before graduating the program, you can begin working while you finish your training.
NHI Graduates enter the field with confidence, knowing they have the skills it takes to build the career they want. You will learn skills that allow you to run your own practice. You may choose to work full or part-time in a variety of exciting professional settings, such as:

"I am an architect and I decided to explore massage therapy as an alternative to spending eight hours a day at a desk. Every class was amazing and I loved the AVK teaching method that is used at NHI which is learning by hearing, seeing and doing, it really helped make the curriculum easy to learn because we got the information in so many different ways."
