Massage Therapists are trained professionals who employ massage techniques on clients to help reduce stress and relieve pain in muscles and joints. Massage Therapy is a vital profession in numerous health-related fields, including physical therapy, senior care, sports massage, chiropractic medicine and more.
Our Massage Therapy curriculum includes a wide variety of Massage Therapy techniques and modalities. Courses include instruction in Western massage, body work, myotherapy, reflexology and sports massage.
