The purpose of this study was to promote localized Philippine-Hilot in teaching Wellness Massage as a new delivery mode of instruction and its contribution on the improvement of students’ performance in TLE 10. This is descriptive correlational research which aimed to determine the effectiveness of instructional module among the 77 wellness massage students at Col. Lauro D. Dizon Memorial Integrated High School. The self-made questionnaire was used in this study and validated by experts in the field of wellness massage. The responses were generated through online survey. The statistical methods used are the mean and standard deviation. It was administered for the perception of the respondents on the module as to objectives, introduction, learning content and activities. To determine the significant relationship between the perception of the respondents on the components of wellness massage and their performance as to written examination and practicum, Pearson-Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient (Pearson r) was employed, testing its significant level at p < .05. The study revealed that the respondents were mostly 15 to 17 years of age, male, whom fathers were employed, and mothers were unemployed and or housewife, parents are high school graduates and with lower than Php 5,000 monthly income. The result also shows that majority of the students have an excellent level of performance with a grade of above 90 in both written and practical examinations. The results indicate that majority performed well in the test on localized module. There is a significant relationship between the components and format of the module in wellness massage and students’ performance in both written and practicum on the module. The hypothesis stating that the perception of the respondents on the components and format of the module in wellness massage in terms of objectives, learning content, activities and their performance is not significantly related to written examination and practicum is not sustained. The assessment tool, on the other hand, indicates no significant relationship in terms of written examination, hence the hypothesis in this respect is sustained.
