Massage therapists are the heroes of healthcare. Using the therapeutic power of touch to improve other people’s lives is incredibly rewarding.
With career stability and a healthy work environment, massage therapy has as much to offer as a career path as it does in health benefits for clients. With our program you will learn a variety of massage techniques such as Swedish massage, hydrotherapy, deep-tissue massage, advanced clinical massage techniques, spa/wellness treatments, plus pathology, kinesiology and business ethics.
