The Massage Therapist program offers a well-rounded curriculum that blends knowledge of therapeutic massage with the knowledge of the structure and function of the human body. The program focuses on practical experience offered in a fully equipped clinical setting and introduces a variety of specialized modalities, including Swedish massage, sports massage, shiatsu, neuromuscular techniques, and massage for special needs populations. The program also includes the business skills necessary for the student to enter the field as an independent practitioner. The program is designed for the student with little or no prior experience.
The Massage Therapist program is designed to prepare the student to sit for the National Certification Exam for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCTMB) at the completion of the training. Applicants to the Massage Therapist program who wish to relocate are encouraged to research out-of-state licensure requirements prior to enrolling.
