Accredation vs. Approval

While, graduates from both, accredited and approved schools, are able to become licensed and/or certified in CA state, accredited schools receive federal financial aid, while approved schools do not.
School of Holistic Touch is an approved school.

Licensing vs. Certification

Licensing is granted to an individual by a city, while certification is granted by the state (CAMTC - California Massage Therapy Council).  CAMTC certification allows a therapist to work throughout California with much more ease, since CAMTC certification supersedes city licensing requirements. A CAMTC certified therapist can obtain a city license without going through that city's test(s). Some CA cities sinply require CAMTC certification in order to obtain a license. While both options allow a therapist to legally work, in many cases, they both have very specific requirements (usually in the form of educational hours and tests).

Cost of Tuition

SoHT students pay as they attend. When a students starts a class, they pay for that individual class. Students are not required to pay for an entire program upfront. For specific class prices, please reference our page "Programs and CEUs".

Length of Class/Program

SoHT offers many classes, which CAN make up (a) program(s). Our students are not required to complete any set amount of classes or programs.


Students are able to pick and choose which classes they'd like to attend, then reference our schedule to decide when they would like to attend each class. Since our students have the flexibility and freedom of making their own schedules, the amount of time it would take to complete a program completely depends on the schedule a student makes. Since each of our classes has a designated amount of class time, and will be offered multiple times each year, and at different times (morning, evening, weekends), the amount of days/weeks the class(s) will take to complete will vary.
