General Education Requirements

The massage therapy program prepares students to become practicing massage therapists. Massage therapists use the art of massage and other complementary modalities for treatment of body dysfunction and general wellness benefits. Graduates will work with a wide variety of neuromusculoskeletal conditions as well as in providing clients massage for general relaxation. The majority of massage therapists are self-employed, although many are employed at resorts, cruise lines, casinos, wellness centers, hospitals, nursing homes, and outpatient clinics.

The massage therapy program assists students in obtaining the skills required to successfully function in the delivery of health care as a massage therapist. It is designed to allow students the opportunity to learn about the human body, how it functions, the effects of injury or disease, and the benefits of massage to maximize function. It also provides them hands-on, practical experience in preparation for the State Board Examination.
