LHAA History

The Academy was founded in the summer of 1999 and the first Massage Therapy Training Program was started in September 1999.

From the beginning the Academy has focused exclusively on creating a high standard of education for the Massage Therapy field. Since then, the school has graduated over 45 classes of students in the Massage Therapy program and has developed, hosted and taught continuing education classes for advanced learning in massage and bodywork.

During the summer of 2008 the school broadened its scope of offerings to include daily Yoga classes, an intensive Yoga Teacher Training program, and other holistic healthcare workshops available to the public.

In the spring of 2010 the school continued to broaden its focus on career training in the health and wellness professions and added an intensive training program in Personal Fitness Training.
