This will include proper massage procedure, techniques and contraindications for specific conditions , condition assessment, hygiene, draping, and record keeping. All massage therapists and apprentices in Hawaii must have this training.

Within those 570 hours, you are also required to complete 420 hours of practical training either as a student at a massage school under the supervision of a massage school teacher or as an apprentice in the State of Hawaii Apprenticeship Program. You can complete this training with us here at AlohaVeda as one of our apprentices.

The remaining hours of the apprenticeship will be supervised practice of massage, along with record keeping duties. This entire process must be completed within a time frame of between 6 and 24 months.
