In following health guidelines and recommendations we have begun live in-person continuing education classes since June 13. Class sizes are reduced in an effort to ensure the safety of participants and instructors.

While class sizes are smaller, we are actively adding class options scheduled over weekends and weekdays, full-day classes and also as shorter modules to provide at least 12 hours of hands-on CE.

Many of our classes are offered two or three times throughout the year to provide scheduling options.

All classes listed are NCBTMB approved through the Heal Center (451383-10) or the respective provider/instructor. We make every effort to ensure all classes, including those we host, fall within the scope of practice of massage as is defined in the Georgia Massage Therapy Practice Act (Title 43 Chapter  24A), following current Board rules and regulations concerning the acceptance of CE towards license renewal¹.

We are a family-owned and operated healing arts and learning center in Sandy Springs, GA, since 1992.
