Massage Therapy training will provide students with the physical, technical, and academic skills to begin a career in the expanding field of massage therapy. They will receive extensive training in massage and bodywork assessment, theory, and application, enabling them to perform a wide range of massage techniques in relaxation, pain management, and injury recovery. When they complete the program, they will be prepared to take the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) exam or the National Examination for State Licensing (NESL). Then, they may choose to become a private practitioner opening their own massage therapy business, work in a salon or spa, or even travel the globe working in resorts or on a cruise ship. If they prefer clinical applications, work with a chiropractor or in a health club.
