Hands-On Training with Real Clients in our Student Clinic

Massage is a hands-on career, and at Raphael’s School of Massage Therapy we believe that’s how it should be taught. As a Massage Therapy student, you can work with real clients in our professional on-site student clinic, under the guidance of an instructor.

Our goal is to help you feel comfortable moving into any massage setting after gaining hands-on, real-world experience before you graduate.

“My favorite thing from the school is the inspiration I get from the instructors and the flexibility of the school. It just pushes me towards my career and gives me confidence for the future.”
– Amy Nabb
