Who is Healing Hands International

Healing Hands International is an internationally renowned academy, specializing in a vast range of complementary therapy courses. Our intense training is designed to transform students into experts. We are devoted to providing personal growth with integrity and a commitment to excellence. It is our privilege to present programs on an international standard, where every member of our team shares a common commitment to provide outstanding education. The pressure is on us to provide the community with top-notch therapists with solid reputations, quality education and firm understanding of the therapist/client relationship. We at the academy gladly rise to that challenge!


At the academy we encourage personal growth, balance and sensitivity that qualify each student to work successfully as a professional therapist. We provide open learning programs that ensure the flexibility and professionalism required for you to achieve your dreams. We have a continuous, qualified staff of lecturers whose intelligence, enthusiasm, and creativity inspire an open and free atmosphere for learning.

How are programs delivered?
Healing Hands International uses an open learning model. In terms of this model each learning program can be completed at your own pace within a 2 year bracket. Should the program contain practical contact hours, these should be completed at the college on the dates as prescribed by the college. These sessions are presented concurrently on scheduled dates for a predetermined number of sessions. There are various starting dates for these sessions and a student can opt to start these sessions whenever they are ready within the 2 year period. Schedules for the different starting dates and times for the different programs are available from the college and will be included in your learner pack. If contact hours are required for a specific program, you will need to attend these classes consecutively for at least one run, but these can be repeated as many times as you feel necessary within the 2 years at no extra charge.
