Lima Hana Massage Education Center opened in Billings Montana in January, 2016. This project is the culmination of years of gathering experience and building a network of friends and professional contacts. The massage profession is growing and changing every year. We would like to build a stronger massage community in the Billings area and throughout Montana. We are offering an entry-level certification program to increase the overall number of LMT’s and we plan to support newly licensed therapists and established LMT’s by developing a mentoring network, continuing education classes and retailing massage supplies.
The school is the result of many months of hard work by Michelle and Eric. Together they bring many years of massage, business and education excellence to the school and an eagerness to share the knowledge they have with others. They both also firmly believe that they will learn something new from each and every student. If you have stopped learning you have stopped living.
Lima Hana is a certification granting massage school. At the end of the 625 hour program you will be a Certified Massage Therapist. Montana State requires a license to practice massage therapy. Our certification will make you eligible to sit for the MBLEx exam. Once the exam is completed, the test scores and course transcripts will be sent to the Montana Board of Massage Therapists. These documents, an application and letters of recommendation, (and an application fee) are all the information necessary for the state massage license.
Our plans are always evolving and changing. But our goal will remain constant: “Strengthening individuals, families and our community through our working hands.”
