The Asheville School of Massage & Yoga does not accept credit from any other institutions.
In the event that disciplinary measures are needed, the Director will inform the student of the situation, and allow the student’s input, before deciding upon a course of action. A written warning will inform the student that he or she may face more serious consequences if he or she does not fulfill specific requirements to keep compliance with school policies, procedures, or student conduct policies. A student placed on probation may continue in the program on a conditional basis.  The length and conditions of the probation are at the discretion of the Director.
When a dismissal is issued to a student, he or she must cease all participation in the program.  If a student fails to meet the terms and conditions of probation, he or she will be dismissed.
At the time of dismissal, the student will be notified as to whether reapplication to the program is welcome, and of any conditions that the student would be required to meet before being considered for readmission.  If the student chooses to reapply and is accepted, he or she will be notified of the course and financial requirements at that time.

When you attend an accredited institution, you are attending a school that has undergone a rigorous process that evaluates educational quality. Trigger point therapy is a proven approach for the relief of soft-tissue pain and dysfunction.
I had some exposure on Trigger Points and wanted to gain as much knowledge as possible to help clients with various problems. At first I thought the 1 year deadline to complete this course was extreme but wound up being very happy for it when life took a much different course for me and I had major changes that needed my attentions. It may seem like a lot of material, especially if you read the book verses the online program, but in the end it is totally worth it!
I really enjoyed this course and look forward to using this in my practice in the future to help my clients. An excellent condensed resource for the extensive information involved in trigger point therapy. I am a certified neuromuscular therapist, and this was not only a great refresher of NMT, but also the self-help techniques are invaluable to me and to teach my clients.
Very interesting and helpful to me and will be motivating information for my clients because their conditions are described and validated. Enjoyed the course and would highly recommend it to those seeking to expand their career to include Trigger Point massage into their practice. I was very satisfied with the book and course and love the idea of being able to take the course at home and the test online. Certainly filled a gap in my knowledge and i have recomended the book to clients and other therapists.


This course really helped me with self help and showed ways for me to teach clients to help themselves.
This was an EXCELLENT source of reference & training that will enhance my practice and I will utilize the techniques for self preservation. After being out of school for 10 years, this information was highly interesting and very easy to understand. I like to take my time when doing independent studying, so I enjoyed the fact that the courses have a very long deadline before having to take the test. I am so in love with this book that I plan to develop several self treatment courses for new mothers, older people and in the long run I want to set up a course to teach other massage therapists. This was one of the most practical and interesting home courses I've taken and the drawings showing trigger points and referred pain areas for each muscle was very good and will be most helpful. I am inspired by the work of Clair Davies; his passion for the subject, as well as his objective data and anecdotal examples were fascinating.
This course, along with the idea of teaching clients self-care, should be a required part of all massage school curriculum. I was glad to find a course that I could take on a text that I had already read extensively and interested me very much. This course was very educational and I feel I can definitely implement these producers into my massage. A great way to freshen up what you all ready learned in school but you WILL learn something new!

This continuing education course provides a uniquely specific study of trigger point location and alleviation as well as specific cautions and contraindications. I read the majority of the text book and will use it as a reference, since there is so much excellent information. I have been doing Trigger Point work in my practice for 12 + years - I learned the techniques by studying Meridian Therapy and have had very successful results - I was not sure I would like or learn anything new or different in this course but I was surprisingly pleased - I pretty much was familiar with all of the points but the book gave me a good refresher course in the muscles. Clair Davies made the material interesting with stories from his personal life and stories from others with trigger point issues.
I think it's great to offer one online as there's so much information given, I can't absorb it all just sitting there in a classroom for 2 days. This practice gave me instant feedback, enhanced my learning and brought welcome relief to my own problem areas. The textbook does a wonderful job clearly presenting the information in an easy to follow format incorporating multiple learning styles. As a massage therapist it is often difficult to schedule a massage for myself, so this course has some excellent tips on how to massage yourself anywhere!


I highlighted and underlined so many sections of this book and it is so great to be able to teach my clients how to reduce and eliminate their pain all by themselves! It also took it one step farther to give explicit ways to know you are working the right areas. Finished in about a weeks time and was throughly impressed by the material not only for my clients benefits but for my own. I've been using the Travell & Simons Trigger Point Therapy flip chart in my practice for several years.
After reading this book, I now feel it is very important for me to take some trigger point workshops to better assist my clients! I'll even be able to incorporate into my own practice some of the techniques used in this program. I like having the test, etc online, but appreciate having a person pick up the phone or return a call.
I already do some trigger point therapy, but this course increased my knowledge and understanding to a whole new level. This course has opened my eyes to referred pain patterns and how to treat them effectively. Examine our courses for up to 90 days and if you're not 100% satisfied by the quality or our service, your full tuition cost will be cheerfully refunded. This course serves practitioners who want to better understand and reduce their own pain as well as those who want to help their clients.
Symptoms that would normally be examined in a doctors office are diagnosed in a limited venue which would require a person to receive prescriptions that may or may not improve the quality of life. It is pretty inspirational that he was able to figure out Travell and Simons book and put it into concepts for the lay person and for the professional massage therapist.
Additionally, I have already used trigger point therapy in my practice with positive results. Even though the illustrations are pretty simplistic, ita€™s easy to find these trigger points.
I will definitely apply this treatment to my practice and it will be a great benefit to myself as well for the maintenance of my health also. The material showed me how to work all the trigger points which in 2 wks time I have gotten my full ROM back.
I think the workbook is excellent, and the self massage of trigger points has really been beneficial for me. I can definitely see myself constantly referring to the book in the future for both me and my clients. I learned a lot and know that this Trigger Point manual will come in handy definitely in the future of all my massages. Bureau information reflects national statistics and may not represent job growth in a specific region.
This course has been an inspiration to me and helps me to believe I can help myself and my clients as a massage therapist until I choose to retire, rather than forced to retire from my own aches and pains. Unfortunately it also reveals how much Doctors do not know about the body, and how much becomes a guessing game which requires expensive testing procedures that may be completely unnecessary to one's pocket book. This is one of the best courses of study I have pursued in my massage continuing education. I absolutely loved this course and it has definitely better equipped me to be a successful massage therapist. The book explained a lot I will use this book as long as I have my massage practice Great great material.
