About this Program

The Massage Therapist program is for students interested in pursuing a professional career in massage therapy, or for health care providers looking to enhance their range of clinical skills and knowledge. Professional massage treatments support and promote the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of clients. Massage Therapy also reduces the ill effects of stress, assists with pain management, and assists in the recovery of physical injuries. Students in the program learn the theory as well as fundamental techniques necessary to perform effective, professional massage. Upon successful completion of the Massage Therapist program, students are eligible to take the National Certification Exam for Therapeutic Massage (NCETM) or National Certification Exam for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCETMB) administered by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).
