A Massage Therapy Program With Hands-On Training
When working toward your Certificate at the College of Massage Therapy, you’ll participate in a combination of classroom, laboratory and hospital internship experiences. Areas of study include anatomy, physiology, professionalism, massage modalities and techniques, and body mechanics.
During labs, you can expect to observe demonstrations of massage techniques by the instructor and then practice those techniques with your classmates. A major focus will be dedicated to massage therapy techniques such as:
Neuromuscular and trigger point therapy
Lymphatic Facilitation massage
Swedish and sports massage
Deep tissue massage
Spa methods and practices
Getting hands-on experience with techniques like these is what prepares you for an entry-level massage therapy career. Employment and self-employment opportunities include working in a chiropractic office, a day spa, a medical massage therapy clinic, a sports facility, a health club, or provide chair massage in a corporate setting.
