Healwell is proud to offer online and in-person courses for massage therapists and other allied health professionals to support meaningful integration of massage therapy as well as interprofessional collaboration and the role of self-awareness in effective and sustainable caregiving.
Hospital-based massage therapy is kind of our thing. Whether you’re curious about clinical massage or already working in a hospital setting, these courses will exponentially expand your clinical reasoning, pathology, and communication skills.
These courses are for all humans. They focus on self-awareness, clear and compassionate communication, equity, ethics and the sticky questions of professional and personal “boundaries.”
Knowing and being clear that the “knowable” bucket is quite small are both big parts of being able to truly show up for others (and even for ourselves) at the end of life. Our EOL courses are designed to help you know what can be known, and get comfortable with the unknown
Oncology Massage training is essential knowledge for all massage therapists, not only those who want to specialize with this population. Learn what you don’t know so you can make appropriate referrals and have the confidence to work with clients affected by cancer.
Pediatric patients are not tiny adults. We’ve created several courses (both in-person and online) to provide you with the knowledge and skills to work safely and effectively with pediatric patients affected by illness.
Healwell partners with educators from many disciplines across healthcare. These classes address our common needs and values, and foster an interdisciplinary perspective in care.
We missed you too!

"I will be honest and say that I was unsure I was emotionally ready to do this work after the first day, more so because of my experience with a family member being affected and passing from cancer. At the end of the day and into the night I really did some solid thinking and continued the classes and felt each hour of the day was getting better and better. I am beyond happy with the instructors and their way of teaching I feel prepped on the basics and will take baby steps into this specialized field to make sure truly i can emotionally be ready. I thank everyone involved in putting the class together it was a wonderful experience and I look forward to taking more from Healwell."
"This course was incredibly well designed and executed. I very much appreciated any review offered as well as the introduction prep to the peds floor. The instructors were extremely well prepared and their depth of knowledge was very apparent. Frequently checking in with our group as to how we felt and if we had any questions was important support."
"Cal and Kerry present information in a way that is relatable easy to understand. This class feels like permission to bring your authentic self to work."
"Although I have previously taken an oncology education course and have worked with this population in the past and still have occasion to do so, I appreciated the different approach to the subject brought by this team of instructors. They are very knowledgeable in their field and offered different perspectives based on their practice, experience and personalities which was refreshing and helpful since not everything is cut and dried in the emotional and varied area of cancer treatment. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and took much helpful information with me."
"True learning happens when you journey into it and experience it. The instructor brought us up close and personal."
"This was an amazing class. One of the best I have ever taken."
"I loved this course! I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes into play in my career. Thank you, Healwell!"
