HHI ​Community Electives & Continuing Education


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 a Certified Professional Massage Therapy – 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.
