1000 Hours | 43 Credits
Our aesthetics program has grown out of our award winning Massage College and with our 1000-hour program, you have the opportunity to combine the best of both worlds, earning licenses as an aesthetician and a Master Massage Practitioner. After you complete your aesthetics training, you may transfer in the aesthetics hours to the 1000-hour Master Massage Practitioner with a Specialty in Natural Aesthetics Program at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.
SWIHA’s Master Massage Practitioner diploma program exceeds the requirements for massage therapy training in nearly all states in the country. Graduates of this program are prepared with many holistic health tools to enter a mid-level professional position or begin their own practice. With all that you learn in the Master Massage Practitioner diploma program, you can take your gifts out into the world in a loving and profitable way.
This 1000-hour program contains the entire core competencies required of a classically trained massage therapist. In addition, you choose added hours of training in two or more exciting primary specialty areas which resonate with you and your goals. By earning certification in these specialties, you gain an edge over other licensed massage therapists when applying for employment or starting a private practice.
With a full 300 hours of training over the state minimum requirement, it is clear why we call this our “Master” Massage Program. We truly help you become a master in the field of massage therapy. This one-of-a-kind program will lead you to creating the professional reality where you can touch lives, heal bodies, and live the life of your dreams.
