DISCLOSURES

STUDENT CONDUCT

At the discretion of the instructor, a student may be dismissed from school for serious or repeated incidences of intoxication or drugged state of behavior. Possession of drugs, alcohol or weapons, exhibiting behavior that creates a safety hazard to others or disobedient or disrespectful behavior toward a student, instructor or administrator are also grounds for dismissal.

SPECIALTY ELECTIVES

Individual elective workshop classes are available at IPSB at LEI. All prerequisites must be met prior to being confirmed to attend any class. 

ADVANCED CLASSES

After completion of the 120 Hour IPSB Foundations class (or an equivalent training that covers comparable hours and content from another school), students may partake in a wide array of advanced classes, covering a broad spectrum of massage, bodywork, aromatherapy, anatomy, pathology, and specialty modalities.  

CAMTC does not require than an applicant be enrolled in an approved program. However, for training hours to be accepted, they must be from courses in approved programs. Be aware that the approved programs meet the science and technique requirements and not following these parameters may mean some hours will not be accepted as your minimum requirements. Some classes have pre-requisites to be completed prior to participating. Our Student Services Specialists are here to answer all your questions and help create a schedule that works for you.

PROGRAM APPROVAL

All courses of study offered at IPSB at LEI are approved by the California Superintendent of Public Instruction under the provisions of Section 94311(d) of the California Education Code.

 

LIBRARY

** Please note that due to current Covid restrictions our reference library is closed. We recommend downloading the Public Library app for borrowing books digitally for free. You can access it on a computer at Libby.com. Not all textbooks are available but many of the recommended books are available digitally. **

An onsite reference library is available which includes books across a range of topics relating to health and metaphysics. Students are welcome to utilize these resources while on campus. We request books not be taken off campus. 

HOUSING

All programs are non-residential. It is the responsibility of students to secure their own housing.

CLASS SIZE

Class sizes are limited. We follow CAMTC recommendations that hands on classes may not exceed 25 total students to 1 teacher. For classes that reach their limit, students will be placed on waitlist, and will be advised prior to class if they have secured a place in the class. 

Additionally, the school is mindful of appropriate class size that allows for appropriate social distancing in the space the class will be held and class sizes are adjusted to accommodate for this.

CUSTODIAN OF RECORDS

IPSB at LIfe Energy Institute is now the official Custodian of Records for Institute of Psycho Structural Balancing (IPSB) students who attended the school prior to July 1, 2016. 

 

IPSB at Life Energy Institute is honored to continue the legacy of the IPSB style of massage therapy in the greater Los Angeles area.

CAMTC CERTIFICATION

NOTICE TO CAMTC APPLICANTS

On September 19, 2018, the Governor signed SB 1480 into law. This stated that (among other things) passage of a CAMTC approved exam is not currently required for CAMTC Certification. While the law previously imposed this requirement, the requirement to pass a CAMTC approved exam has been suspended through December 31, 2021.

CAMTC approved programs have met minimum standard for training and curriculum, and training hours may be accepted toward education requirements for Certified Massage Therapist applicants. Applicants for CAMTC certification shall have completed at least 500 supervised hours with a minimum of 100 of those hours satisfying CAMTC specified subjects.

Attendance and/or graduation from a CAMTC approved school does not guarantee certification by the CAMTC.

  • Submit a Transcript Request Form (the school will submit a copy directly to the CAMTC, and the FSMTB if student plans to sit the MBLEx exam).

  • Complete a CAMTC Application (www.camtc.org).

  • Provide evidence that you are 18 years of age or older

  • Submit fingerprints to an authorized agency in California for a Live Scan using only the CAMTC form at Request for Live Scan Service (the authorized agencies charge you a fee for this service) and pass a criminal background check.
