Are you looking for a brand new journey? We gather to learn how to become a licensed massage therapist step by step. Being a massage therapist is the most rewarding,amazing,valuable career here in Hawaii and everywhere in the world. You will never lose the skills you learned. No tools will ever be needed. It is you and your touch, your passion that heals people in need wherever you go. I became a LMT 12 years ago when I was a stay at home mom of 3 small children. No challenge is easy, but I learned as long as you are passionate and have a near goal, you are in charge to make it happen. Many students come to me say "I always like to help people" "I grow up massaging family and friends." "I want to make a difference in someone's life" "I want to be happy with my job" Students massage a person for the first time like they have done it all their lives. We are all gifted, you might not have used it, but you'll never know you have it unless you take the opportunity to find out. In Hawaii people do Lomilomi massage to family and friends as a form of subculture. It comes so natural to many students to express love through massage. In Japan we have katamomi ( shoulder rub) also many of us grow up doing it in daily basis. Every country, every place in the world has it's own unique massage modalities. Massage is a form of expression of love and passion to whom in need. Everyone has experiences where you take extra moments to put your hands to someone, it could be a person or animal because you want to heal. We are all meant to heal others and to be healed by others touch. Take one step forward to explore a new career path. All of our instructors at Nori Kohana Massage Academy love what they do and eager to share their passion and skills to future therapists so you can achieve a dream career. We are waiting for YOU !
