With our certificate program offering 760+ hours of study and 1260+ hours for our associate degree, our interns have an education that far exceeds the state certification standards of 500 hours. Our interns have completed all of their massage coursework, including many practice hours, and are working in our spa prior to graduation. As they work under the supervision of professional massage therapists, they are able to hone their skill set as they prepare for their career. Although fine tuning is necessary, clients will find our interns to be well trained and eager to deliver a high quality session.
Our professional therapists are certified in the state of Indiana to practice massage therapy, are trained in a range of massage modalities, and maintain credentials from nationally recognized professional massage organizations. Their experience radiates through their skillful hands as they deliver a custom-designed session to meet the needs of their clients. Due to availability, advanced planning is required when scheduling.

Dustin Casey, CMT, Adjunct Instructor
I was born and raised in Indiana. After 9/11 and having taken many trips to the Big Apple I joined the United States Marine Corps in 2005. Spending the next eight years in the USMC Reserve. During that time and only twenty-years-old I found myself in the heart of the Al Anbar Provence in Iraq attached to the 6th Engineer Support Battalion under the 2nd Marine Logistical Group as a Field Radio Operator. Upon returning home I earned the ranks of Corporal and then Sergeant all while maintaining my billet as a Fireteam Leader..
In 2011 I graduated with a B.A. in Theatrical Studies and a minor in Aquatics from Ball State University. That same month I EAS from the my home unit Detachment 1 Comm. Company 4th MLG. The following year I received my honorable discharge from the Department of Defense ending my time as a U.S. Marine. But, while at BSU I helped a friend through chemotherapy and radiation treatment while performing amateur massages. Fell in love with the CAM field.
I called up Harrison College and moved to Greenwood to pursue a new degree in Applied Science Massage Therapy. While as an intern I was able to work both with the Berkley swim team (twice) and split my time with an externship at the Indianapolis Indians Baseball Club. Finalizing my time at Harrison in 2013 I received leadership acknowledgment from the SMTA and the Spirit of Service Award upon graduation day.
Since graduation from Harrison I have had the opportunity to work at a full service salon and spa learning how to apply and hone my skills in spa techniques. I launched Mt. Olympusmassage and began learning how a small LLC business is to be managed and operated. In 2015 I was hired by Massage Envy and have had tremendous opportunities to grow as a Deep Tissue/ Sports Therapist within the ME brand. In 2017 I was hired by ME to be trained and then teach their new modality Total Body Stretch to the entire Indiana Region. Upon returning to the clinic level I help on board new therapist and learn the Front Desk side of operations. Recently I am pursuing a Holiday/Working Visa opportunity to spend a year in Sydney, Australia. Currently, I am ecstatic to have the teaching bug and to join the Harrison College as an Adjunct Professor. Looking forward to the challenges of being a full time LMT, Adjunct Professor, and small business owner.
