The Center for Natural Wellness School has more than 10,000 square feet of space for classrooms, student lounge, tutorial room, meditation room, student clinic, bookstore, kitchen and administrative offices. The classrooms and student lounge are spacious in size and have vaulted ceilings. The Student Clinic is fully equipped with 20 massage booths, and has a separate reception area. The building also offers ample off street parking for its students and the massage school staff.
The library contains over 700 volumes of massage-related books, including anatomical and orthopedic textbooks, text on various bodywork modalities, books on the mind-body connection, as well as many others. A vast collection of massage videos and audio/visual equipment is also available. In addition, current and past issues of periodicals and massage magazines provide a wonderful resource for interested students. Videos can be rented for $1.00/day and $2.00/weekend. The late charge for overdue library books is $.50 per day. Our resources also include a full complement of scientific/anatomical equipment, CD-ROM’s for Anatomy and Physiology and Pathology, human skeletons, practice mannequins and modern audio/visual equipment.
The bookstore is fully stocked with all of the required textbooks, supplies, and massage equipment including tables, chairs, oils and lotions, aromatherapy products and school-related clothing. Any items not in stock can be ordered for students. Students can also rent massage tables and chairs at the school for $7.00/day based on availability.
All of the classrooms are clean and quiet, and can be tailored for large lectures or compartmentalized for privacy so students can practice their massage skills on a one-to-one basis. Each of our spacious classrooms can accommodate up to six massage booths, so that as many as 34 students and their instructors can be working at the same time.
The student lounge is informal and modern, and has been created to foster a sense of community among students and faculty. Convenient kitchen facilities containing a refrigerator, sink and microwave are adjacent to the lounge and allow students to prepare meals as they wish during lunch and dinner breaks.
The meditation room is a quiet space for students and staff to reflect, relax, pray and/or meditate. It contains soft lighting, candles, incense, meditation pillows and a fountain. It is a wonderful place to go to take time out of a busy day to de-stress and get focused. It is always open and available for use.
