808 Wellness in Kihei:
Our program is unique because of the small classroom size(only ten student max) there is more hands-on time with instructors, more real time observation and practice in a working spa environment in a beautiful setting and an opportunity to expand your knowledge and more in depth training in modalities you are drawn to during your apprenticeship without lengthening you training time. In addition to being more affordable, with different payment plans available, you have more flexibility in your training schedule, with the option to finish in the six month window to apply for testing and licensing immediately afterwards, or take more time to finish if needed.
At the heart of this massage training is instruction in Polarity Therapy – which will not only enhance your practice but also the longevity and quality of life as a practitioner. This is not only a way of looking at health and healing, it is a way of empowering your life as well as the lives of others. We incorporate this philosophy into every course we teach. In this course it is not a replacement for massage, but an enhancement. There will be more advanced trainings in this modality in the future.
What Polarity Therapy is: Polarity Therapy is a comprehensive health system using energy-based bodywork, exercise, diet, nutrition, and verbal communication to bring body, mind, emotions, and spirit into a state of balance and vibrant health. Our program provides a foundation of the Human Energy System and how it functions and relates to health & all aspects of life. READ MORE HERE
What Polarity Therapy is not: Polarity Practitioners do not diagnose or treat illnesses; rather they assess where you are out of balance energetically, and support you coming back into balance naturally. It is not intended as a replacement for other forms of therapy or healthcare.

Here are a few words about our program from master practitioners:
Knowledge and Skills in Polarity Therapy is foundational to your success as a massage therapist. I know of no other system that is as comprehensive and helpful in the healing process
As an MT, I helped my clients. But they too often returned with the same chronic issues. Polarity Therapy goes straight to the origin using skill sets of communication, trauma release techniques and energetic nutrition. The symptoms of pain and stress begin to diminish and release sometimes all within one treatment! Any MT and their clients will greatly benefit from the addition of Polarity Therapy. “healing from the inside out”
