Massage Therapy – The Aveda Difference

19 Jan Massage Therapy – The Aveda Difference

Are you looking for a career that can give you the freedom to be your boss and help other people? Look no further! Aveda Inspire Greatness Institute offers a comprehensive massage therapy program (at our Denver and Provo locations only) that can equip you with the skills necessary to become a skilled massage therapist. As an Aveda Institute, there are some things that make our massage therapy program significantly different from other comparable programs. We have the Aveda difference!

What Can I Learn at Aveda Inspire Greatness?

Nearly every massage therapy program around the country teaches the same set of basic massage principles and practices. Western massage is rooted in what are known as “Swedish Massage” techniques, which is the most prevalent type of massage in the country. These techniques emphasize releasing pain and tension though massage by kneading, effleurage, stretching, tapping, and many more!

Teaching the basics of massage therapy is the core of the program, but it’s also important that our students are equipped to be successful professionals. Our massage therapy program covers the basics of best business practices, as well as practices that can help you build and manage a book of clientele. If you have a job in massage therapy, you either work for a business or you own the business, so we want our students to be ready to handle either case!

The Aveda Brand

The Aveda brand was born in 1978 from the mind of Aveda’s founder, Horst Rechelbacher, a prolific beauty expert and protector of the earth. The roots of the brand come from the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda, which is a holistic health, wellness, and medicinal system that is still widely practiced throughout India to this day. Horst worked closely with Ayurveda experts to develop a brand lifestyle of holistic wellness that Aveda practices worldwide.

Massage Therapy and the Aveda Difference

Being an Aveda student isn’t just an occupation, it’s a transformative lifestyle. Horst believed that everyone wakes up each day with the ability to choose how they would influence the world. All of our choices, no matter how small, add up to a lifetime of change in the world. This is why Aveda takes special concern for the products that are used on clients, emphasizing the use of plant-based products as part of the regular massage routine. Not only that, but Aveda carries an earth-centric focus with the products created for health and wellness. Renewable, recyclable, and cruelty-free products are all integral hallmarks of what it means to be Aveda!

Massage therapy students at Aveda Institutes aren’t simply taught to perform massage. They are taught to care for the entire well being of their clients. This starts with the plant-based massage products that ensure that the client is receiving nothing but the best the earth has to offer. Students can also offer elevated massage services that use Ayurveda-inspired techniques to enhance wellness. Energy work, chakra alignment, and Aveda’s trademarked Aromaology are all taught to massage students to help them stand out among the massage therapists that graduate from a cookie cutter curriculum. Standing out from the rest is just a part of the Aveda difference!
