Massage Therapy is meaningful work in which you can make a difference in the quality of life for others and yourself. Never sell yourself short by settling for less than a high quality education. Your education is an investment in your future.
  1. Learn as much as you can about the profession of massage therapy in Ohio.
  2. Read the Scope of Practice governing the licensure and practice of massage therapy in Ohio. Go to our State of Ohio Medical Board Link.
  3. The school should encourage and/or facilitate your talking with any current student or graduates of your choosing (not just those picked by the school.)
  4. Insist on seeing accurate pass/fail rates from the Federated States of Massage Therapy Board's Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam (MBLEX). These pass rates are sent to each massage school. This will show you how SHI is doing, and how SHI is doing in relationship to other Ohio massage schools. They also show how SHI is doing in comparison to national pass rates on the MBLEX.
  5. Talk with faculty who teach at the schools you are considering and discuss curriculum, classroom hours, their training, and philosophy about education. Ask for the names of instructors.
  6. Attend an orientation or open house, tour the school and ask to visit a regularly scheduled class.
  7. Receive a massage from a graduate of the school you are considering.
  8. Discuss tuition and all costs involved in your whole education, financial plans, refund policies, and make sure these are in writing. There should be no small print, "hidden" costs, or long term debt for your education.
  9. Find out how long the school has existed. Contact the State of Ohio Medical Board for information about the school. Contact the Better Business Bureau to find out about their standing in the community.
  10. Ask yourself which school more closely represents your professional goals and is a good match with your personality. On which campus do you feel most comfortable?

Geography and a school's advertising budget are probably two of the worst ways in which to select a school...however tempting they may be!

GET A LOT OF EDUCATION FOR YOUR MONEY AT SHI

At SHI, we have worked very hard to keep costs down for students so that you have money to set up a practice when you graduate. Also, our founders did not want you to be trapped by years of paying off a school loan. This was the desire of the two healthcare providers who founded SHI and we carry on that tradition today.

TOTAL SERVICE FEE & TUITION as of FALL OF 2017: $9048
(tuition payments spread out over 19-24 months)
Books & labs extra

GRADUATE FROM MASSAGE SCHOOL WITH NO DEBT.
Paying back school loans after graduation means you don’t have as much money to start up your own practice in Massage Therapy.

However, that does not mean you receive less of an education. In fact, SHI teaches you everything you need to know to pass the state and national licensure exam plus much more!!

As part of your regular curriculum, you will study and be competent to practice:
  • Swedish Massage Therapy
  • Craniosacral Therapy
  • Myofascial Therapy
  • Muscle Energy Techniques
  • Business practices for the Massage Therapist
  • Touch Pro Chair Massage
  • Thermal Modalities
  • Massage Clinics at the VA Hospital Pain Clinic, Shriner’s Burn Hospital, Hospices, drug rehab facilities, private practices, nursing homes and many more...you choose what real life experience you want for preparing you to practice.
DON’T LET OUR LOW TUITION COST FOOL YOU. IT IS LESS THAN OTHERS BECAUSE SHI CARES ABOUT ITS STUDENTS
AND THEIR FUTURE.
