    Our Programs

    All of the faculty hold such a high level of integrity and teach the art of presence and making clients feel at ease. In my own massage practice today, my own professionalism helps my clients to feel safe, at ease, and well-taken care of so they can fully receive the work of my hands and heart.

    The amount of help and overall attention to students was beyond what I expected. I was flabbergasted at how amazing the staff was, not just the teachers, but everyone.

    Martina Tuckner, LMT and EWC Graduate

    My experience at EWC was amazing. What I learned about massage and technique was only the beginning. What I learned about myself was both a surprise and a most valuable lesson.
