HHI Continuing Education/Advanced Electives

We offer over 2,500 hours of Advanced Electives for continued education and training. Many of our Advanced Electives are open to the public – you do not need prior massage therapy or body work experience to take these classes. Other classes are Advanced Electives for Massage Therapists or body workers; these classes may require previous massage therapy experience and/or completion of an MT550 program.

Each course description gives you an idea of the course curriculum, as well as any required materials and prerequisite classes. Some Elective Programs will require students to take classes in a progressive order and will be indicated in the description.

Please be aware that it is the nature of certain holistic healing modalities to bring physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual imbalances into balance. Memories and emotions might surface during the course of any such experience.  This is, like in massage or any other healing practice, part of the session and the training.

Just click on the BUY NOW button in the calendar below under each scheduled elective.  If you pay for your Advanced Elective classes on line 5 business days prior to class start date we will discount your rate with the appropriate Early Bird Discount.

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that
I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really
becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the
belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire
the capacity to do it even if I may
not have it at the beginning.
