- Wellsprings College of Massage Therapy and Esthetics, 11160 Yonge Street, Unit 12 Richmond Hill, ON. Wellsprings College of Massage Therapy and Esthetics was founded in 1993 to promote alternative medicine in Canada. Our aim is to maintain the highest standards of education and training in massage therapy. The Massage Therapy program involves 18 months of intense learning involving lectures and practical hands-on experience. We offer the Massage Therapy program every September for 18 consecutive months. Classes are Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm – with 2 to 3 lectures a day. Massage therapy has become a recognized and essential aspect of good health care and general wellness. Massage therapy has been practiced for thousands of years and is acknowledged as one of the oldest methods of healing, with references of it found in medical texts nearly 4,000 years old. In fact, Hippocrates, who is known as the “father of medicine”, referred to massage when he wrote in the 4th century B.C. “The physician must be acquainted with many things, and assuredly with rubbing”. Actually, massage therapy is not so much rubbing as stroking, kneading, tapping, compression, vibration, rocking, friction, and various other therapeutic techniques.The College offers free parking, modern equipment and supplies, and state of the art hydrotherapy facilities.
