Fundamental Massage Therapy Program

300 hour curriculum


  • Interested in gaining the introductory skills and knowledge needed to give a professional massage?

  • Planning to practice in a city like Pasadena?


We have a program for you.


In this course HHI gives you the basics needed in order to practice with confidence. While not a certification course, this program is an excellent choice to receive the basic training for cities with a 300 hour requirement. This program focuses on the power of touch, and how massage affects the mind, body, and spirit to facilitate the body’s healing process. The student is grounded in Swedish massage techniques, and starts the study and practice of Therapeutic Deep Touch – HHI’s approach to Deep Tissue massage.


The 300 clock hour program provides an excellent foundation toward earning the requirements in anatomy & physiology, kinesiology, medical terms, contraindications, health & hygiene, ethics and business classes needed to apply for State Certification as a massage therapist, and will allow students to work in cities that do not require CAMTC certification.  


The 300 hours are comprised of the first 300 hours of the Professional 550 program, and two sessions (10 hours) in the Student Clinic. Students who have completed the 300 hours and want to come back for the Professional Program can join the next program available at the 301 hour mark.
