CA Massage Therapy School Awarded Massage School of the Year

The World Massage Festival has announced its 2012 winner for best massage therapy school and the winner has more than one reason to brag.

The National Holistic Institute massage therapy school in California was recently named the 2012 Massage Therapy School of the Year by the festival’s organizers.

The massage therapy school is an accredited university for massage therapists and originally created by Carol Carpenter in a home in Oakland in the 1990’s. Today, the National Holistic Institute is a massage therapy school based out of Emeryville, California. The school offers 744 hours of core training in a variety of massage therapy techniques that include Swedish, Shiatsu, reflexology, and more. The core classes at massage therapy schools also involve anatomy, kinesiology, and business skill such as finance and marketing.

The National Holistic Institute made the news last year for opening a campus location in Sacramento to meet the needs of a growing massage therapy industry in the city. It held its first classes in Sacramento in March of 2011 on Arden Way.

The massage therapy school is California’s largest with six campuses across the state, a growth that anticipates a number already published by the U.S. Department of Labor. The department expects massage therapy jobs to rise by double digits in the next decade. In a report by the Sacramento Bee last year, Steve Pierce who is a supervising partner for Massage: “I’ll tell you how things are. If the (NHI Sacramento school) had 20 or 30 massage therapists ready to graduate, I’d hire them all right now.”

The World Massage Festival is an independent massage therapists’ convention started in 2006 for the purpose of bringing massage therapy’s message to the public. The festival is held in a different location each year and is a two-person show, operated and coordinated by Mike Hinkle and Cindy Michaels.  The 2012 World Massage Festival will be held in Las Vegas from August 10th through the 22nd.
