January 8, 2016 - June 17, 2016

Thai Massage

This part time massage training program is a 194 hour introductory course covering Human Anatomy and Physiology, as well as the history, theory and demonstration of a variety of massage techniques. Our goal is to prepare students with a strong technical foundation as well as to inspire them to open their heart and delight in the gift of touch.

This course fulfills the requirements of the Hawaii State Massage Board for "pre-licensing" hours.  After completing this course, students are eligible to participate in Kalani's Massage Apprenticeship Program.  This program consists of ongoing coursework as well as twice weekly massage clinic shifts.  At the completion of the Apprentice Program students are then eligible to take the Hawaii State massage licensing exam.

Class sessions will be held Fridays 9:00am-5:00pm and Saturdays 9am-12:00am. Our part time schedule allows you to receive training towards becoming a licensed massage therapist, while having enough free time to accommodate work, family, and play.
