Therapeutic Massage

The Therapeutic Massage program prepares you with a strong foundation for a career in therapeutic massage. This is a branch of complementary health care that works to improve a person's health and well–being through hands–on manipulation of muscles and other soft tissues of the body. As a massage therapist, you can work in medical, spa and health club settings, as well as in private practice and owning your own business.

Upon successful completion of the program, which includes extensive
hands–on experience, you will be eligible to take the Massage Board Licensing Exam (MBLEX).
