In 1992, KC Miller founded the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts. This school started quite small, as KC was a massage therapist simply looking to teach others healing modalities. The success of this school grew so rapidly that KC was able to purchase the former PTMC school building and eventually added hundreds of CEU classes. Since then, SWIHA has become one of the largest holistic institutes in the country. SWIHA now offers courses in massage therapy, aesthetics, life coaching, reiki, spiritual counseling, nutrition and so much more.
Many AZ locals utilize this school simply to advance themselves. Others start new careers or make huge life shifts from the corporate world into the healing arts. SWIHA has become a staple in Tempe and is well-know throughout not only Arizona, but the United States. Hundreds of online courses are offered, making it easy to receive education from anywhere.
In 2018, SWIHA was notified that their location was going to be torn down in order to build a new apartment complex. Being very close to the ASU campus, it was a prime real estate area to choose for residential living. Graduates and staff alike were saddened and worried for what was to come. They also believed that this was all happening for the greater good. SWIHA is a place of pure magic and positivity. Taking this in stride, they found a new home just a few minutes away. The new SWIHA campus was up and running by the end of 2018. Just a few months into their new location they are still thriving as much as they every have. This schools reputation is outstanding, and a little change in location isn’t going to slow them down.
If you are interested in experiencing some of the magic for yourself you can schedule a free campus tour via phone or online. SWIHA also hosts a “Gifts and Graces” event the first Friday of each month. This is a free event open to the public. School staff and graduates host a discussion on various topics. This discussion is followed by free samples of reiki, toe reading, life coaching, and various other offerings. The SWIHA community is so very welcoming and KC Miller is still very active in the school. If you aren’t close to Tempe you can watch the “Gifts and Graces” discussion via Facebook live.
