School of Massage

Russell Rust, Founder

Hands On Approach was founded in 1998 with the idea that a student should not have to invest their hard-earned money in their education, only to require additional training upon graduation. Our School of Massage offers an exceptional training program that prepares you for the real world of massage therapy.

We’re more than just a school; we also have one of the nicest spas and massage clinics in the area, dedicated to training highly skilled massage therapists in Dallas, Texas. If you want to make a good living as a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), you must learn how to give your clients what they want – a really great massage!

Massage schools have the responsibility of preparing their students for career success. Hands On Approach prepares you to succeed as a massage therapist, teaching you proven techniques that  achieve exceptional results with your clients. Upon completion of our curriculum, you’ll be licensed and ready to go to work immediately.

A Proven Curriculum

Hands On Approach provides advanced education with its core curriculum that is recognized for creating exceptional massage therapists. If you are comparing massage schools and are looking for a comprehensive education, take a closer look at our program and see what a first-rate massage school can offer you.

Our curriculum is designed by working massage therapists to give you the benefit of their experience – not something typically found in a traditional career school. You work hard for your money, and so do we! It’s our pride and privilege to produce massage therapists so skilled that we only hire our own graduates.

A Program of Distinction

Hands On Approach Mission Statement: It is our mission to provide every student the knowledge and skills they need to immediately enter the workforce upon receiving their massage license. 

We designed our facilities to be first-class massage schools and day spas, giving students the type of environment conducive to learning all aspects of the massage profession in an atmosphere that is similar to the environment they will begin their professional careers in.

From our large training rooms to our private hydro, massage and jacuzzi rooms, the decor reflects a relaxed but well-organized educational program unmatched by traditional career schools.

The goal of Hands On Approach is to provide a high quality education in massage that could lead to a lucrative and rewarding career. Not all massage schools properly train students to be ready to go to work the day they get their massage license. Our students are fully prepared to go to work and won’t need any additional training to land that first job or start their own massage therapist business.

As a massage therapist, your livelihood depends on the experience of your teachers and staff. Choose the school with educators who have helped paved the way for the massage profession in Texas! Our trainers have been in the business for over 22 years and have maintained a dedicated clientele who relies on their services. 


The Financial Aid Challenge

You can make a great living as a licensed massage therapist, but it all starts with good training at a manageable cost. That is why picking the right massage therapy school is probably the most important decision you will make in your career.

The cost of a massage program at a traditional career or technical school can start at $10,200.00 before financing, and can be as high as $18,300.00. Our tuition is just $4605.00 for our 500-hour program. Or, save $2357.00 on our 570-hour program that includes the cost of supplies and books.

At Hands On Approach, we don’t believe you need to go into debt to become a massage professional in an environment dedicated to massage and spa training! We offer in-house financing or private loans if you qualify. Please contact us for more details.
