Program Description

Healwell's Hospital Massage Therapy Stewardship Program is an intensive continuing education course in hospital-based massage therapy practice. The program includes six days of hands-on clinical practice working with patients on multiple units at the University of Kentucky Hospital.

This training teaches therapists how to apply critical thinking skills and how to safely work with any patient, regardless of diagnosis.  Therapists also learn the many facets of professional and practical excellence in a clinical environment.

The Stewardship consists of online and in-person modules. All online modules must be completed before stewards can participate in the six-day in-person module.

Tuition

At Healwell, we are continually working to make inequities visible and to change them. One of the ways we do this is by inviting people who engage with our programs to thoughtfully consider what they can and want to invest in the current and future state of our world and community. When you make the decision to benefit from content created by Healwell, we invite you to consider it as an investment.  

When you choose which level you’d like to pay, let it be an exploration of how you want to participate in the future. What can you afford to pay today? What is it worth to you to ensure that others can have this same experience you’re about to have while continuing to be able to meet their basic financial commitments? Can you offer a little more and invest in our collective future? Or is today a day when your heart wants to do that, but your wallet can’t?

Every day is different and every person is different. Be thoughtful. Think beyond yourself and choose a level that’s congruent with your financial life and your deepest values. We’ll all get there.

Cal Cates

Cal has been teaching and developing curriculum for massage therapy courses focused on hospital-based practice, oncology massage and end of life care since 2007. Their experience in clinical practice in hospitals around the US has informed their teaching style greatly. Cal is clear that massage therapy is healthcare and feels a personal commitment to inviting students to consider themselves as integral to a whole person healing process. Their favorite thing about teaching healthcare providers is the ability to blend nerdiness and authenticity to create opportunities to be more effective, more human and more flexible.
