Since then, it has drawn over 1,200 beginning students and 3,000 continuing students from national and international locations interested in the field of massage and bodywork therapy and the healing arts. As a leader in the field of Massage, CFMNH received the Number 1 license from the North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork and has been operating continuously for twenty-five years.
