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
- Side-lying 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.
