NOTE:  To practice Polarity Therapy, any  form of Energy Healing, Reflexology or Aromatherapy you need a license to touch. If you don’t already have a license to touch, we suggest that you take our MT300 Massage Therapy Program.  MT300 plus an additional 200 hours of electives will allow you to apply to the CAMTC for State Certification which is a license to touch.  Most students that have done this have fallen in love with Swedish massage and have another avenue of helping their clients.
