Alpha School Of Massage 5

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE For further information, contact: Alpha School of Massage, Inc. 4642 San Juan Ave. Jacksonville, Fl. 32210 (904) 389-9117 mm6527 www.alphaschoolofmassagecom To: Everyone that wants an opportunity to become a massage therapist! Don’t let the economy and/or low grades keep you from learning a wonderful career. Massage Therapy is one of the fastest growing professions in the country. Massage Therapy is regulated by the Florida Department of Health and is considered a Healthcare profession in this state. The oldest and most respected Massage Therapy School in Jacksonville is again waiving the usual $9,000.00 tuition for their 900 hour advanced massage therapy program. That’s right, absolutely no tuition for an entire year of training! There is an initial (one-time) enrollment fee of $200 and a small monthly fee of $99. That’s it, no other fees are charged by the school. Neither a student loan or financial aide is required. Students graduate ready to take the state licensing exam without having the usual college debt. Everything is paid for by the end of graduation. Current and past students frequently ask “Why would anybody borrow $12,000.00 to $24.000.00 for tuition to learn massage therapy when you can learn from the best for next to nothing?” Florida leads the country in massage education and can boast of having some of the finest massage instructors anywhere. Nowhere is this more evident than at Alpha School of Massage, which has 2 instructors that have been teaching there since 1995. While some schools are closing their massage therapy programs, Alpha School of Massage is expanding their massage program. Unlike many of the other massage programs which are taught at schools that offer several other programs (such as ultrasound; nursing assistants; medical assistants; radiology; etc.) massage is the only program taught at Alpha. This enables their staff to focus and expand their knowledge and expertise completely on massage and massage related topics. There aren’t any tricks or gimmicks to this offer. Channel 4 news aired a story about this wonderful “no tuition” opportunity in July, 2007. We have also been featured in a few other local television stories, as well as having a full page story in Folio Weekly. This is a fantastic opportunity for your students that don’t want a traditional 2 or 4 year college degree, or can’t afford one. I am not aware of any other vocational or technical school that offers this low cost opportunity. Please let your students know about this opportunity.

I have always believed in and have had a passion in the ability to promote better health naturally though massage therapy. I had previously checked out other schools and their tuition was way out of my league. I heard about Alpha School of Massage waiving the tuition and couldn't believe it. Well, I have recently graduated and I have to say that my journey here has been absolutely amazing. Both, the knowledge and experience I have gained is priceless. Don't let the free tuition fool you. The quality of teaching is amazing, interesting and fun. This school just believes every one should have the same opportunity to have a career through massage therapy. You will not only learn the basic relaxation massage, the barefoot technique, but also therapeutic techniques that help with relieving pain and stiffness from a headache to neck, back or shoulder problems. Some of the other things taught with the course are protocols to help those who suffer from Fibromyalgia, Tension / Migraine Headache, and Temporal Mandibular Joint ( T.M.J. ) Disorder. Your job / career field options are plentiful including owning your own business ( yet another part of the course). I have gained lasting friendships that still get together after graduation. Oh yea ! Did I forget to mention that since the tuition was waived, my daughter was also able to complete the course with me for a second career. This not only gave us memories for a lifetime, but the ability to have our own family business doing what we truly enjoy. All I have left to say is ...Whether you want the career choice full time or part time...check it out for yourself.

First of all: 1. You will get your cert (probably) if you go here. And that's what really matters. 2. In the areas of anatomy and physiology, and the technical aspects of massage, the instructors are top notch. But: 3. You'll get right about what you expect, for free tuition. It's not completely free. You will pay $200 to sign up, and $100 a month. They say this is for enrollment fees and facilities expenses. But you won't get any books for your money. And all you get for that $100 a month is free lotion and a place to study and do massages. A student's survivability here depends on how determined or thick skinned they are. The instruction is good, but the teachers tend to have more personality than professionalism. The rules change on a whim, are not documented at all, and fingerpointing is the norm. The instructors can be very endearing, but also very gruff, and you never know which flavor you're going to get, from day to day. In the middle of the program, for example, a 100 hour unpaid internship was introduced. The details of which change from person to person, day to day, and this development has caused the morale to drop considerably. No one will get the okay to apply for their cert until they finish this internship, which is not a requirement by the state massage therapy board. So take the other reviews with a grain of salt - the happy accolades stopped once the rules started changing randomly.

As a student @ Alpha School of Massage I highly recommend this school to anyone interested in this field. With many schools to choose from, I had several questions and concerns. When I called Alpha they were running a special program and they were waiving the $9000 tuition ! I must admit that greatly influenced my decision. When I came to Alpha, I found out it was the oldest massage school in Jacksonville. Our teacher is great and he has an abundance of knowledge he has shared with us. We have learned massage practices for : tension and migraine headaches, low back pain, fibromyalgia, tempormandibular joint dysfunction, and a barefoot deep tissue massage. We offer these to the public along with the swedish relaxation massage. We have also had the opportunity to go to local businesses and offer chair massages on the employees. This was alot of fun. I believe that this school is dedicated to the massage industry and they have a desire to see the students succeed and they are not here just to make money. I have enjoyed the classes and everyone I have met here. This has been one of the best decisions I have made.

The Alpha School of massage offers people of all ages a great career oppurtunity as a massage therapist, training you in several types of massage, such as the TMJ, Barefoot, and Tension Relief. After graduating you have multiple job oppurtunities at your disposal, such as working at a spa, a massage parlor, or even opening up your own business and being your own boss. The hours are flexable, the people are friendly, and within a year of signing up you'll have graduated, gained invaluable experience in one of the most underused, and oldest medical professions in the world, and have learned more of then taking the same courses at a college

I have been getting massage for several years now, and the massages that I get from the students at Alpha School of Massage are always great. In my opinion, they are just as good as the massages I have received from licensed therapists. Some of the massages that they offer can't even be found at most massage clinics or spas, such as their Barefoot Deep Tissue Massage. You can tell that the students want to please you and that they are really trying to give a good massage. I really enjoy the electric table warmer that makes the table toasty warm when I am on it. Not only do the massages feel wonderful, they are inexpensive, only costing $30 per hour. If you have never had a massage before, give this place a try, you'll be glad you did. If you get regular massage and pay $50, $60 or more per hour, schedule your next massage at Alpha and save some money. I'll bet you like their massages just as much as the more expensive ones. My hat's off to their instructors. I can usually call the same day or the day before to schedule my appointment and they are open Monday thru Friday. It's easier to get appointments in the morning, but I usually can get an appointment in the evening when I remember to call early enough. Don't know how I'd make it through the week without them!

Alpha School Of Massage 1

Alpha School of Massage has a great 900-hour program that offers massage techniques, which most schools do not teach. Although, I have finished half of the program, there is still a lot, in which the instructors have to teach and that I have to learn. The instructors are very knowledgeable and are willing to help. At the end of the program, the majority of the students will have gained more experience then most, beginner LMT's. Update: The only reason most of the Ratings are 5 stars because the instructors had students write a review of the school. I would not recommend this school to anyone. The main instrutor makes up rules as he goes. More than half of the students dropped out of my class because of his rules and antics.

I am a student in the free tuition program. This program is teaching us so many aspects of massage therapy and our instructor makes it easy to learn and understand. Many students are starting a new career path, and some are recent graduations starting their first career. The school offers very affordable massages to the public, and they go way beyond just a standard Swedish relaxation massage, but that is also available if you prefer. You can come here regularly, its affordable, and just one way to take care of your body. Or enroll in the class yourself and learn how you can start a new career, or help people to feel better.

Through much research I choose this school to attend, with their great instruction in advance medical massage. With the best training in relaxation massage, we are also learning many protocols (such as) for people who suffer with tension and Migraine headaches, fibromyaligia, neck, shoulder and back pain. This is also a great place to get a massage (such as, relaxation, back and shoulder, four hand and even barefoot) and at an inexpensive price.

The Alpha School of Massage is a wonderful experience for someone looking for a career/career change! It is never too late and you are never too old! After investigating many massage schools, Alpha quickly became my top choice for many reasons: The scholarship program is amazing and the $9,000 tuition fee is waived! The education at Alpha School of Massage is advanced and on the cutting edge of this growing field of opportunities. Students, upon graduating and obtaining their state license, are well prepared to launch their own practice and are equipped with confidence to land a job in most any medical field, as well. The opportunities are endless! As far as student relationships - we are a family and we care about each other! A word of encouragement: It is never too late to begin a new career. You are not too old! If you care for people and want to explore how you can make a difference in preventative care, along with the natural healing process of many suffering with aches and pains, consider enrolling in the Alpha School of Massage's 900 hour program! The experience will not only help bring about a wonderful and healing change in others.... It will be an exciting and rewarding journey for you, too! I am very proud to be a part of the Alpha School of Massage family!

Alpha School of Massage has the best deal going for anybody that is interested in learning massage! The entire tuition is being waived for those students that enroll on or before July 15, 2007. The normal tuition for massage therapy training in Florida is around $10,000.00. Anybody truly interested in becoming a licensed massage therapist should check out this school immediately! For a short time only, students can enroll for a full-time 900 hour massage program and pay absolutely no tuition. You read that right. No tuition!! Yes, there is a small enrollment fee of $100.00 and a book and supply fee of $390.00, but that is all that has to be paid to this school. Their normal $9,000.00 tuition is being completely waived for their next class that starts July 30, 2007. No tricks, no gimmicks. There is limited seating, so only the first 20 students to enroll will be accepted. Students must enroll by July 15, 2007 in order to be considered. Not only are they cheaper (how can you beat FREE?) than all the other Jacksonville massage schools, they are the only massage school that teaches barefoot massage. They know what they are doing, and are the oldest massage therapy school in Jacksonville. Their instructors have all been teaching at least 10 years each. Call them at 389-9117 or just go on by and enroll (4642 San Juan Ave. Jacksonville, fl. 32210)

Alpha School Of Massage 3

Massage by students at a reasonable price ($30/hr). Massages all take place in one big room, so it can get a little noisy. Therapists can give a good basic swedish massage, but don't ask for any specialized work. Temperature is chilly. Different randomly-assigned massage therapist every time. Some seem to care, others are just trying to make a grade.
