Healing Touch Spa Apprenticeship Program

Massage Apprenticeship Program

Healing Touch Spa is proud to offer the first Massage Apprenticeship Program in the state of Minnesota. Our Rochester apprenticeship program is an alternative to Massage School. This program was approved by the MN Department of Labor (DOL) in October 2021 and the first Apprentice started in November 2021. If you are passionate about being a Massage Therapist and would like to earn while you take the courses you need to be licensed, then this may be the program for you!

Our Massage Apprenticeship Program is now accepting applications. Earn while you learn how to be a Massage Therapist.

Before you apply ask yourself these questions:

  1. Am I able to make a firm 2-year commitment?
  2. Do I have the strength and stamina to do massage? (It is a physically demanding job)
  3. Am I willing to make the commitment to do the coursework required? (Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology, Business, Ethics, etc)
  4. Am I available to work full-time – including weekends?
  5. Do I have a history of an excellent work ethic?

If you are currently enrolled in a massage school and have completed some of the programs, all the classes that you have already completed that are massage-related would be transferred, which would take time off your apprenticeship.

If you can answer yes to these 5 questions, we would love to talk with you. Call or email to set up a time to learn more about the program.
