Educational Goals

Learning Styles:  The Daniels Institute knows that adults have varying learning styles.  Some people learn visually, some through hearing and some kinesthetically through hands-on work.  Our instructors are sensitive to these issues and work individually with each student so they can understand through their styles.

Our Philosophy:  Teach to know.  Our goal is to graduate outstanding Massage Therapists who can pass the National Exam and be successful for themselves and their community.

“Do no harm” is a cornerstone of the school.  We offer the student the highest quality education in the Valley.  We are strong in the sciences of anatomy, physiology, pathology, and kinesiology.

“Physician heal thyself” is a foundation point that offers stress management for the student through Yoga, T’ai Chi, quieting the mind and breathwork.  Health and fitness are important aspects for the students and are addressed throughout the program.  To ensure a long and prosperous career, proper body mechanics and awareness are emphasized during these classes.

We are also strong in both Western and Eastern massage theory and applications such as Swedish, deep tissue, medical, sports, reflexology, acupressure, Reiki, cranial sacral, Ayurvedic and energy work.  We offer the student an opportunity to enhance their expression of love and compassion as a health care provider, improving the quality of life through touch and awareness.

We also assist the student in the development of professional work habits by modeling a professional attitude with a commitment to ethical practices towards clients and fellow practitioners.  All the staff are available for the students before or after class to discuss any and all concerns the student may have.  Please feel free to phone, text or email us and talk.

With an exciting and balanced program, each student (with total participation on their part) is totally prepared to take and excel in the national exam.
