Massage Therapy

DESCRIPTION

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.

From the beginning, students will gain hands-on experience in order to acquire necessary technical skills in manipulation, pressure, friction and body work. By the end of the program, students will have learned to launch, manage and grow a successful massage career with confidence. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to sit for the MBLEX national certification exam. The MBLEX is required for licensure in most states.
