Source Institute Massage School & Therapeutic Bodywork of Fort Walton Beach

800-Hour Massage Therapy Extended Program

At Source Institute, we understand that financial circumstances in life can hinder one from reaching his or her educational and career goals. For this reason, we have partnered with a private firm that will pay $4,500.00 in tuition costs for all students not already receiving financial assistance. The tuition cost for this 800-hour course is $8,000.00. This means that you will only pay $3,500.00 for tuition and $300.00 for books and registration. The total cost is $3,800.00 for the entire program (*). That amount does not have to be paid upfront. You can make monthly payments, and we do not require a credit check. There is a limited number of seats per class. 

Our next morning class begins April 2, 2024

There are 7 spots available in this class.

Our next evening class begins July 1, 2024

Plantar Fasciitis

Knowing when an injury has to do with muscle, tendon, or bone requires not only knowledge of human anatomy, it also requires knowledge of kinesiology or the study of the body in movement. Testing movement with resistance is the key to treating the actual injury.
