UCHA has been recognized for providing community service to many organizations. Students should demonstrate a commitment to community service and/or involvement with the health and welfare of others. Students gain valuable experience by providing seated massage, sports massage, comfort touch, and other forms of massage appropriate for various community groups. Groups such as hospice, senior citizen centers, adult day care, grief centers, corporations, and various organizations are served. Students may assist a Licensed Massage Therapist in their on-site massage business. They also participate in various community service events totaling 30 hours over the course of the program and designate at least three hours each week towards their individualized wellness program.
The school is dedicated to community education and promoting the professional standing of massage therapy as a health care modality that collaborates with other professionals.
