“Body Mind College has been the best move “spiritually” I have ever made. The perfect place for my life to truly unfold in the way it was always supposed to. From the first day it was clear to me that this school is a lot more than just a massage school. Body Mind College is for most people a time of salvation. It was clear that this was a huge part of my life’s plan. The perfect place to finally heal my life!”

HOLISITIC HEALTH PRACTITIONER PROGRAM - 1000 HOURS
"Healer, Heal Thyself." What does that actually mean?
At BMC we believe that you can’t give what you don’t have.
Our 1000-hour HHP program will give you direct experiences in your own personal healing process, as well as training the skills necessary to be a Holistic Health Practitioner.
What does it mean to be holistic?
Holistic means addressing the whole person, not just their body, but who they are in mind, and emotions, and how that all combines and effects the “wellbeing” of the person. Unlike a typical massage school, we have a truly holistic and balanced program with one quarter of our program focused on studying the body, one quarter on the emotions, another quarter on the mind, and a final quarter, truly unique to our school, that teaches how to integrate all three.As part of our "Healer/Heal Thyself" approach, students will attend four weekend retreats to support the immersion process into personal healing, as well as into the material and the skills necessary to be proficient as a Holistic Health Practitioner.

We have 2 traks for the HHP program. One focuses on Bodywork and the other focuses on Holistic counseling

MASSAGE THERAPIST PROGRAM - 600 HOURS
This unique program not only teaches bodywork techniques and methods, but also emphasizes training the skills necessary to be successful in massage. Students will develop such skills as "connection to the client,", "working with intention," and "finding and releasing trauma in the body." Students will also be able to develop and maintain proper body mechanics; a necessity for a full and rewarding massage career. The 600-hour program includes two weekend retreats designed to provide an immersion experience into the material, as well as an opportunity for students to establish a deep connection to themselves and their body. Our Massage Training is the foundation for the 1000-hour HHP program and will also introduce students into the holistic aspects of healing, and how these aspects integrate into a massage practice.

The course is designed to teach you the fundametals of massage, body mechanics and anatomy as well as give you an opportunity to study other areas of interest with the 55 hours of electives. This course is usually able to be completed in 4-5 months.


MASSAGE TECHNICIAN - 120 HOURS

Body Mind College’s Massage Technician course is a unique program training you in the foundational, underlying principles of massage therapy and health as a whole. In this class you learn the traditional bodywork techniques that are used in a practice, but rather than focusing on the techniques, we emphasize training you in what is underlying the techniques, that creates a truly phenomenal practitioner. This is a simple, but profound teaching style that we have had great success with since this class began in 1988. You will also learn the arts of T’ai Chi, Ki Gong, and Yoga. These arts are used to train your body in a way that will help prevent injury during your massage carrier, as well as training your body/mind for the grounding, connection, and presence necessary for an exceptional massage practice. This is the foundational class that the rest of your education will build upon.
