The Wellington School of Massage Therapy was established in 1995 by Richard Rust and Jane Brenan to offer a range of massage courses up to the level of diploma/professional membership required by the then professional Massage organisation NZATMP, now called MNZ. The School programme has expanded significantly since then and now offers a complete range of courses in Massage and many other modalities - from quite basic to very advanced. We are very fortunate to have the continued support of a group of exceptional tutors who help to make it all possible.
All courses are held in our Training Rooms which are located in the very centre of Wellington city on Level 3 of the James Cook Arcade Mini Tower, 294 Lambton Quay. The School office shares this floor with the Radiant Health Centre, Richard's clinic.
The structure of the School's programme is modular which means that most courses can be taken as stand-alone interest only, and can also count towards a more advanced qualification. And with the majority of courses held outside of "normal" business hours students can continue with their regular job/activities while they re-train. As well as our fantastic local students we get many others travelling to the School from all over New Zealand, to take advantage of post graduate and speciality courses.

This is a quote from the book Warriors of the Heart by Danaan Parry. It is quoted here because it has a resonance with Our Vision, and the "Soul" of our School:
"This is a book about you ..... the one who has that somehow unexplainable feeling that you were meant for something more, that your life has a greater purpose. This is a manual for all those who know (maybe not understand, but know) that they have somehow chosen to be part of something very new, something that could bring our species from the brink of destruction to the doorway of an entirely new concept of human relationships. Our planet is crying out for men and women to own their power and to be positive agents of peaceful change. This book is about you learning to do just that. The Warrior of the Heart is someone who is making a difference, a positive difference with their life. What matters is that, because the Warrior of the Heart has had the courage and commitment to live what she or he believes, and to follow their inner calling, their heart, the world is a better place to live and the conscious evolution of our species has moved forward one more notch".
