Our Mission

We embrace the Art and Science of the practice of Massage Therapy. Students develop assessment and palpation skills and clinical reasoning abilities so they can design a treatment plan to meet the needs of the clients they serve.

Our Education

In our program, Students learn relaxation massage as the foundation for the therapeutic techniques learned later in the program. We believe relaxation massage is therapeutic in it’s own right, and students learn therapeutic techniques for assisting clients with areas of pain, tension, and restriction. Students develop awareness & focus which are key for both assessment and treatment.

Our Training

The professional training is a 750 clock hour, state licensed program that awards graduates a Diploma in Massage Therapy and grants graduates the title of Massage Therapist. Students are prepared to become State Licensed and Nationally Certified. The 10 month program begins in March and September.
