Not all people can attain this level of education. There IS a difference between Praxis graduates and lesser trained individuals.
The massage certification program is 1,800 classroom hours of theory and practice. The course can be completed in 64 weeks. The course is over four semesters, each with adequate break times to prevent burn out and increase retention. Praxis College assists each student in finding paying clients during the first weeks of class. This allows you to try out your skills in the real world. Students have access to the faculty for consultation and support, while building a private business. Textbooks, uniforms and supplies cost $1,000, this includes all equipment usage and over 4,000 pages of handouts. Students pay tuition at $250 per month with no down payment or interest charge. In addition, Interest Free Loans, Scholarships, Grants and Work-Study opportunities are available.
Praxis students are taught by Medical Doctors, Chinese Medical Doctors, Registered Nurses and Medical school Faculty. One of the Praxis instructors has been asked to massage two U.S. Presidents. Another has practiced in China. A retired FBI agent teaches our energy modalities course. In addition, we bring in nationally known experts and speakers. Our massage certification education program is a true educational experience. It is not a high school environment of accruing clock hours by reading a book or fluff topics to fill time. It is not the repetitious vocational training that most massage schools provide. We focus on intellectual understanding of the theories and scientific basis for a sound practice. Professionals learn the how and why behind the skills, the research and theories of practice.
There are many reasons why our program is so popular; our highly qualified and diverse faculty, the low cost and easy tuition payment, the depth of knowledge learned and quality of every aspect of the program. Professional image is another reason for getting certified by an exceptional college of massage therapy.
