Yes, you are helping others, and you need to make bank.

Many prospective Massage Therapy Students ask us if we provide job placement. While most schools offer this allurement, we generally do not. We train our students to be masters of their own career journey.

Massage Therapists should not “get jobs” like ordinary 9-5 workers. Massage Therapists who are employed for unfair wages and work long hours generally burn out trying to make ends meet. We train our graduates to be successful entrepreneurs with the confidence to launch themselves powerfully into practice and have serious longevity. If they don’t want to start their own business, they will understand how to be discerning and savvy in employment relationships.

As part of the core 600-hour program, students navigate a rigorous 30-hour Business Development Class, which helps our students understand their options and guides them through very clear entrepreneurial training specific to the massage therapy profession.

We help our students understand realistically what is ahead of them and help them design a bridge to their successful Massage Therapy Career and Practice.

We are solicited regularly by companies who wish to hire our graduates, and we proceed by screening those employers and contract offers for reasonable wages. If they meet our standards, we will place the notice on our Facebook Alumni page.

Our Graduate testimonials are below. 

"I graduated from the Berkana Institute in the class of 2022. I did a lot of market research and had very high expectations of what I wanted from an educational standpoint to set myself up for success as a future Massage Therapist.
The Berkana Institute went above and beyond my expectations.
Now, as a practicing practitioner, I am beyond thankful for my education and the support I received from Berkana. I feel I was setup for success to pass the licensing exam right away and to continue on as a independent business owner.

If you are looking for a massage school that is unique, challenging and focuses on the entire individual and not just a massage routine, don’t hesitate to choose the Berkana Institute.

I own an operate 2 of Denver's leading high volume massage studios with quite a lot of LMT staff. We interview Massage Therapists from all over the US on a regular basis. I can say with confidence that our Berkana Alumni LMTs are consistently some of the best on our team!! Berkana students are well trained, well prepared, and lead by example in our studios. It clearly shows that Berkana gives their students the highest level of preparation and skills they need in order to succeed and excel in the competitive Denver massage industry. I strongly recommend this massage school. "
