Myomassology
MYOMASSOLOGY –  600 CONTACT HOUR CURRICULUM - HANDS-ON HOLISTIC MASSAGE TRAINING
The single identifying feature about myomassology is that treatments are tailored to individuals, and a wide range of modalities are deployed. Myomassology gives us more tools in the toolbox. Basic massage focuses on Swedish massage only. Myomassology, however, treats the Swedish technique as one of a myriad of body techniques.  We are considered the holistic form of massage!

The program consists of a home-study Anatomy and Physiology component in addition to the six months of hands-on training.  This is the ideal program for people who wish to have the flexibility of changing careers while still working and tending to their families.  Each 7 day training session includes 5 days of hands-on massage training, the weekend component is devoted to a alternative healing modality.
