Massage Therapist Apprenticeship Program
Get the Education you deserve. Train in a professional environment. Gain career experience working in a spa.
We help you find your strengths as you develop your skill during 420 hours of hands-on training. Our apprenticeship program can be accomplished in as little as 6 months, or as long as 12 months. It is up to you. We set a schedule that works for your success, and we endeavor to challenge and encourage your growth.
Our apprenticeship program guides you through advanced techniques such as:
- hot stone
- Lomi Lomi
- deep tissue
Many of our clinic volunteers are individuals from our own community. We invite them to participate in your education. This community service is provided via members from the Hilo Police Department, Fire Station, Nurses, and Hospice Care givers, along with many many more who rarely take the time for themselves to receive a massage. We encourage you to spend the time with your volunteers to learn each persons’ desired outcome for the massage, apply their feedback, and strive to improve your skills as you proceed with your training. As your supervisors, we will be present 100% of the time to guide you, give adjustments, tips, and encouragement. During your hands-on training in our massage school, you will not be able to acquire a wage for your services, per state law, but you will be able to accept gratuity from your grateful volunteers.
You will not only gain experience with different body types, careers, and personalities while working with these many different individuals, but you will also gain the pride and accomplishment of giving back to your community.
You will learn:
- proper hygiene
- record keeping
- SOAP notes
- how to interview clients
- how to take appointments
- how to present yourself as a professional
Guidance on attire, products and etiquette are just a bonus of working in our Clinic with the option of transitioning into our day spa. We offer a staff of caring individuals who enjoy watching students blossom into well-rounded massage therapists that they would be happy to recommend clients to.
We look forward to molding you into a successful massage therapist with a long career in service!
