Previously located in the historic Wyman District, the Institute has moved to the heart of the Mile High City in Lower Downtown (LODO) Denver, Colorado. The campus will be open for business as of March 9, 2015. The new campus address is 2048 Larimer Street, Suite 200, Denver, Colorado, 80205.

Berkana offers a 600- to 675-hour basic certification program in massage therapy, which prepares graduates for licensure in the state of Colorado, most of the United States and some international regions. This program is accelerated and can be completed in only five months. The Institute also provides continuing education opportunities for licensed massage therapists, as well as the NCBTMB-approved, 6-week intensive, 250-hour certification training in Berkana’s original modality, Mindful Expressionism®.

As an important part of the education at Berkana, student therapists participate in the student clinic and provide massage therapy to the public at greatly discounted rates. It also provides up to 1200 supervised student massage therapy sessions in the student clinic each year.
