Cohutta Healing Arts Institute gains state and national recognition.

The Cohutta Healing Arts Institute is pleased to announce that our School of Massage has
achieved recognition by three regulating boards!

The process to open a new massage therapy school is lengthy and arduous….and it should
be. In order to make sure that the owners, instructors, curriculum and space are up to
industry standards there are lots of “hoops” to jump through in order to be recognized as a
great place to gain an education.

Massage Therapy schools must meet the standards of two separate state organizations. The
Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (NPEC) looks at the financial health of the
school and its owners, the physical location, the procedures in place to keep up with each
student’s records, the specific courses offered, and a whole list of other things. The
application and review process is thorough and intense!

In addition, the Georgia Board of Massage Therapy reviews our school to make sure that our
graduates are well educated, with sufficient hours of training and with qualified instructors.
The state requires a minimum of 500 hours for any Massage Therapy program – Cohutta
Healing Arts Institute is offering a 755 hour program!

The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) is a third
organization that gives recognition to Massage Schools. School graduates must include an
assigned school code on their application when applying for the National Certification Exam.

The Cohutta Healing Arts Institute is pleased to have achieved recognition by all three of
these regulating boards!! Our graduates can rest easily, knowing that the education they
receive here is of the highest quality, and offers 50% MORE than the required hours. The
training received will prepare them for employment in just about any situation, with the
skills needed to bring compassionate, healing touch to those fortunate enough to receive
their care.
