Mentorship Program:

This portion of the Mentorship Program consists of 10 days of intensive, customized hands-on learning. The Mentorship Program is ideal for international students or anyone who wants to take all of the hands-on coursework at once. Our low student to instructor ratio (2:1) makes for a unique, personalized experience.

All of the techniques taught in our certification workshops are covered during the hands-on class, including trust-building techniques, hands-on anatomy, gait observation, and fundamental and advanced massage techniques.  

Other Required Coursework
Specific online courses must be completed in preparation for this in-person experience (additional course fees apply), and additional online and home study work is required following the 10-day hands-on portion.  

Total Mentorship Program Cost:
  • $8,000 USD Hands-on portion plus ongoing instructor feedback and support ($4,000 of this is a non-refundable deposit)
  • $1,650 USD Online portion (pay as you go)
  • Total = $9,650 USD
