Books and Supplies



Supplies and Materials

Students must be equipped with basic school supplies and a reliable electronic device. The Institute provides linens, books, notes, and all consumable products, such as hand sanitizer and cream, necessary for this educational boot camp. Enrolled students receive a student handbook before the start date of the program advising them on what they will need to integrate into the classroom easily. 

Textbooks and Materials
Textbook Package and Materials Fee

The $1,250.00 Materials Fee covers all of your extensive original handouts, supplies, creams, use of tables on-site, and a textbook package which will include all of the texts necessary to be successful in the program. Students receive a starter packet of linens which they will maintain throughout the program.

Students can use massage tables on campus, but the school does not provide a massage table upon graduation. The school does have a discount program with two massage table manufacturers so that our students can save up to 25% off of their first large equipment order, which can be placed during or after the program.

The Textbook Package and Materials Fee and what is provided for this fee cannot be substituted for any materials students acquire on their own or already have in their possession before the start date of the program.
