Courses

At Healwell, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive education and training opportunities for massage therapists and allied health professionals. Our diverse range of courses, available both online and in-person, are designed to support meaningful integration of massage therapy, promote interprofessional collaboration, and emphasize the role of self-awareness in effective and sustainable caregiving.

Knowing and being clear that the “knowable” bucket is quite small are both big parts of being able to truly show up for others (and even for ourselves) at the end of life. Our End-of-Life Care courses are designed to help you know what can be known, and get comfortable with the unknown.

Healwell partners with educators from many disciplines across healthcare. These classes address our common needs and values, and foster an interdisciplinary perspective in care. Courses include:
