Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and Governor order we have been closed but are now scheduled to open for students June 13th and for Clinic clients and massages June 15th! In the next 2 weeks we are training staff and students on the changes to sanitation, massage, and classroom protocols required to operate. CURRENT STUDENTS: BE SURE TO GET IN TOUCH WITH US TO ARRANGE TRAINING! YOU MAY NOT PARTICIPATE IN SCHOOL IN ANY WAY WITHOUT TRAINING, SO GET IN TOUCH RIGHT AWAY!!!

CURRENT STUDENTS: Our current Science classes via live video went great! Check with your instructor to find out if you class is taking a day or 2 off prior to switching to in person. Regarding MBLEx licensing exam— Check with them now to see if they are allowing scheduling as this seems to be changing regularly, and get scheduled, especially as now appointments for testing will likely not be available till August or September while the testing company works through their backlog.

CE STUDENTS: We apologize, but due to class size restrictions now in place, we cannot accomodate our wonderful CE students until in-class social distancing is lifted.

We will update current and newly enrolled students by phone. Please contact Lee directly if you did not receive the information you need to attend classes when we reopen
