PROGRAM DESCRIPTION FOR MASSAGE THERAPY
Massage Therapy is a profession in which the practitioner applies manual techniques, and may apply adjunctive therapies, with the intention of positively affecting the health and well-being of the client. Massage Therapy involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress; and to promote health and wellness. Massage therapy improves functioning of circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, and nervous systems and may improve the rate at which the body recovers from injury and illness.
The Massage Therapy program provides the student with an entry-level theory and “hands-on” clinical training in massage techniques and alternative therapies that will assist in the maintenance and promotion of physical health and well-being. Students will learn how to provide massage techniques to assist in relaxation. The professional massage therapist will be well-versed in wellness, medical ethics, trigger points of the body, and business management for the massage therapist.
