Message from the President:
Kyle C. Wright
Over the last 30 years I’ve had the privilege of being part of one of the fastest growing professions in health care: Massage Therapy. In 1992 I started my first clinical massage therapy school, eventually evolving into five schools throughout the Southeast.
Helping People Enter a
Medical Massage Career
The well planned curriculum enabled students to graduate with the skills making them employable and able to meet the growing demand for clinically trained massage therapists. In the years since starting my first school, I’ve had the good fortune and freedom to experiment with new approaches to soft-tissue therapy. Now, the innovative techniques my previously owned schools have been teaching for over 20 years are becoming more widely accepted by mainstream massage educators and practitioners.
During that time, I was founder, chief executive officer and curriculum developer of five Southeastern Schools of Neuromuscular & Massage Therapy located in Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina, which I owned and operated successfully with my partners for 20 years. After those years of developing and managing a large administrative and teaching staff I decided to get back to basics and a higher quality of life. In 2007, I sold the five schools to Keiser University and moved just outside of Asheville, in the quaint town of Fairview, North Carolina.
After 5 years in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC, NCSAB has moved to a larger market: Charlotte, NC. In addition, we are opening a new school in Jacksonville, Florida, where it all started.
We are very excited to be able to provide You a Massage Career by offering our Clinical / Medical Massage Therapy and Myo-Structural Bodywork Program where we can ensure it continues to grow in the bodywork community. Not only do the North Carolina and Florida Schools of Advanced Bodywork offer a program meeting your needs for licensure, it takes the student much further into the specific treatment of soft tissue pain due to injury or postural distortion. We do this by accessing the central nervous system and getting the client into the parasympathetic “let go” the body needs to receive this work.
Massage Therapy is one of the fastest growing fields in the medical community and we are proud to train therapists to meet those needs with highly employable and marketable skills. . . .
A Serious Education for those Serious
about their Massage Career!
I am proud to have a strong track record in providing top quality training to new massage therapists including:
• 8,000+ graduates with extremely high student satisfaction
• Physicians seeking our graduates for their practices
• Many of our graduates becoming leaders in the massage therapy field
I ask you, do you want to be on the leading edge of the massage therapy profession and be part of a group of bodywork professionals?
If so, the staff at Florida School of Advanced Bodywork is extremely dedicated to providing you with highly advanced skills serving you well in becoming an integral part of the healthcare industry. For a lot of students their massage therapy education is, with no exaggeration, a life changing experience.
My staff and I in North Carolina have over 60 years of combined teaching experience. In Florida, the staff has 30 years of combined experience.
Over the last 20 years, we have developed and continuously refined the process of teaching this material to a high art. Our curriculum has been precisely thought out and sequenced allowing the material to be delivered in the most efficient and effective way possible. This efficiency combined with a small, high caliber group of students, allows us to teach you far more than basic state requirements that are often taught at many schools in the country.
Our focus is on your massage career by becoming a specialist in managing and resolving significant pain, posture, movement and dysfunction issues for which many people have not found relief.
The Florida School of Advanced Bodywork reflects our years of education, practice and instruction in clinical massage therapy and structural bodywork. It is a product of our belief that students are entitled to a superior education and individualized training so they may uphold the professional standards they continually pursue.
The premise of our program is clinical in nature and the school’s curriculum expresses our philosophy and interpretations of the neuromuscular and skeletal systems and their relation to the body’s structure and function. Rather than attempt to encompass a wide range of massage modalities, FloridaSAB focuses more on specific aspects I believe to be particularly relevant, such as proper evaluation and treatment of soft tissue pain and musculoskeletal dysfunction.
Clinical / Medical Massage Therapy and Myo-Structural Bodywork are two different though related therapeutic disciplines. A successful Medical Massage Career with Myo-Structural Bodywork Therapy involves the ability to understand and effectively identify and manipulate the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of reducing chronic, excess muscle tension and stress contributing to onset of pain and dysfunction. It offers an in-depth look at the various causes, symptoms and conditions of muscle tension and the principles to reverse that tension.
Myo-Structural Bodywork scientifically tracks down the aches, pains, and dysfunctions not sufficiently responsive to the usual localized treatment (at the location of symptoms) of neuromuscular and myofascial structures.
This unique approach to skillful resolution of chronic muscle tension and the problems it causes are the primary skills you’ll be developing here at FloridaSAB. This skill — and the related knowledge — is what will set you apart from many, if not most, of the therapists practicing today.
Our curriculum contains pertinent information structured in an easy-to-follow format facilitating the student’s learning of muscles, origins, insertions, functions, pain referral patterns associated with each muscle, clinical notes for discussion and reference, patient positioning, and treatment strategies.
It is with great pleasure we share our knowledge, experience, and practical skills with you. I commend you for inquiring about our course of study and the massage therapy profession, and I sincerely hope that together we may continue to enlighten the world about the value of massage therapy in our health care system today and into the future.
Good Luck In Your Massage Career!
