Students learn specialized Ayurvedic techniques to purify, balance and renew the body. Hands-on clinical experience includes massage techniques, business development, wellness and retail knowledge. Upon graduation, students will be prepared to take the state and MBLEx licensing examinations, paving the way to a future in Massage Therapy.
The Massage Therapy course, offered exclusively at our Minneapolis location, is a 600-hour program that is taught over a 18 week period. The curriculum includes theory, practice, and clinical experiences in the study of massage and body care. Using AVEDA products in massage and other body treatments, the student learns how to provide a complete "AVEDA Spa Experience" utilizing Ayurvedic practices. Students read assigned texts, take quizzes, mid-term and final exams, watch demonstrations, and practice skills in a lab and clinic setting.
AVEDA massage services and products require special training to use and sell them. Students learn how to use pure flower and plant essences in massage and body treatments. Students seeking a license in other states will be advised about requirements in those states. Licensed graduates are eligible to work in salons and spas that offer full service massage treatments, as well as exclusive AVEDA establishments.
