Montgomery, New York – July 22, 2010 — The Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies, an NCBTMB Approved Provider, is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Health Positive!, another National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork-approved provider. The acquisition of Health Positive! adds more than 70 new courses to the Institute’s current list of 35+ professional-level home study continuing education courses for licensed massage therapists.
