Community Classes

All of the classes we offer to the community are open to our grads:  

  • The Taste of Massage workshops feature a different modality each month.  Review the upcoming topics for a modality you want to learn more about.  These workshops can provide you with a free preview to help you decide if you'd like to receive specialized training in that particular field.
  • We encourage prospective students to attend our Massage as a Profession workshops.  If you are interested in sharing your love of IME/KCHA, please join us.  All attendees receive a neck and shoulder massage from a current student.
  • Featured speakers on various topics and modalities.  Check our community education page for the most up-to-date information and schedule.
