Henry Suit

Henry Helton

Henry was initially trained in massage therapy in the early 1980’s at the YMCA in Mobile, Alabama. I apprenticed under a gentleman that had been trained in Sweden and had been doing massage for over 40 years in his home country and in Mobile. I became an Emergency Medical Technician while in Mobile and soon after my family moved to North Carolina. I was in that last graduating class of Catawba Valley Technical College in 1987, and received an Associate Degree in Emergency Medical Science. I worked as a Paramedic for several agencies in North Carolina over the next 30+ years, continuing to use the massage that I had been taught to keep my partners at work and away from injured down-time. During this time, I was a certified instructor through the NC Office of EMS, and taught at local community colleges. After a couple of years of being asked to come to the massage school, I finally entered an evening class at the Maiden School of Massage and Bodywork and graduated in 2018. I started teaching Anatomy and Physiology in 2019 and have been with the school since.
