UCHA

In 1995, a small and dedicated group–the first students of UCHA–formed an alternative organization that would address the needs of individuals seeking an education in massage therapy. The result was, and is, this teacher’s dream of a massage therapy school come true–where students arrive and take charge of their lives, becoming healthy through movement, nutrition, meditation, self-awareness, and–oh yes–massage.
