Testimonial

  • Dr. Zappy and the team at The Wellness Institute of Chester County genuinely cared about my education as a therapist. They were very patient with me, as I did not have any background in health, biology, or anything. But they saw the passion I had for caring for people and they spent the time to develop my skills as a therapist. Now I am working in a local Doctor’s office, and Dr. Zappy sends me patients all the time. Thanks Doc!

Their flexible program options allowed me to pick a program that worked well for me and my family. Now I am providing for my family in a career that I love. I highly recommend going to Massage School here.

FAQ

How many students are in each class?

We value small class sizes that benefit the students’ learning environment. The format we have developed allows our students to have one on one time with the instructor. Because of that, we limit each class to only 16, qualified students. If you qualify, we offer class starts as often as we can to try and accommodate for the demand.

When do Classes Start? What are your schedules?

A simple answer to this question is difficult, but I will say this, classes start soon and fill very quickly! Your class start will depend on the program you choose. We offer day, night, and accelerated programs at various paces ranging from 4 months to 2 year program options. Each of these programs have different start dates.

Depending on the program you choose; hourly, daily, and weekly schedules vary. Because we have so many start dates, options, and schedules, timing should not become a barrier to your success. As of right now, the next class start is for the part time evening program on September 10th of 2018. The part time evening program runs from 5PM-10PM on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays.

However, new class starts occur all the time and we frequently have other opportunities available. For a specific answer to a more specific question please complete the form below or call our office at 484.341.8598.

How long is the program?

We offer a variety of program options. You can graduate in as little as 4 months! If you prefer to take your time, our longest program is up to 2 years. Overall, in every program option, you will receive 600 hours of in class instruction by a PA Dept of Private Licensed Schools Approved Program and be ready to sit for the Massage and Bodywork Licensure Examination (MBLEx) as soon as you graduate and receive your diploma.

How much does Massage School cost?

Your total out of pocket costs can vary depending on which program you enroll in, what term you decide on, and the types of Financial Assistance you may qualify for. This will all be discussed with you during your admissions interview.

That being said, payment plans are available if you are responsible for the total cost of tuition. Most of our students responsible for the full amount of tuition choose one of our payment plan options. An additional benefit we offer to reduce the monthly amount per payment is to put a down payment towards your tuition during registration. There is no requirement for a down payment, or any required minimums, but we suggest a $500 down payment to reduce your overall payment per month.

Another option we offer is to begin making payments before classes begin. This is the most common option students prefer to enroll in. For example, if classes start in September and you are enrolling in January, instead of making 6 payments starting in September, you can make 15 payments of a much smaller amount starting in January. This option is generally more financially feasible and the most common way our students choose to pay for their tuition.

Whatever you choose to do, and however much Financial Assistance you qualify for, the total cost of tuition is $8,500.00.

How much money do Massage Therapists make?

Based on the 2016 Dept of Labor Statistics, the average rate for a Massage Therapist in Chester County is $80/hour. The average annual income for a Massage Therapist is $60,000.

Consider, something we strive for at The Wellness Institute of Chester County is educating our students to be well above average! Salaries at hospitals, doctor’s offices, and other medical settings are generally much higher depending on where you are employed.
