About The College of Massage Therapy
Recent studies show that more hospitals and health care professionals are recognizing the value of massage as a complementary health care choice. More physicians are referring their patients to Massage Therapists for relief of pain from headaches, backaches, and for stress reduction. This relationship is a support system that creates an increased health benefit for the patient. There is increasing demand for Massage Therapists who can work “hand-in-hand” with the medical community.
OUR PHILOSOPHY & GOAL:
To integrate massage into mainstream healthcare by providing quality instruction and education that will complement the medical setting. We prepare our students to approach and practice massage in an open but methodical manner. We are constantly changing, upgrading and evaluating our program to meet the needs and expectations of our students, as well as the requirements and standards of the field as determined by Idaho State Massage Therapy Board, the Alliance for Massage Therapy Education, the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards and The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
The College of Massage Therapy is Institutionally accredited by the Accrediting Bureau for Health Education Schools.
