To help get us started, we will assume that you are reading this because you want to become a Therapist of some sort. You may wish to simply become a Massage Therapist, or you may want to specialise in a particular massage such as Deep Tissue, Sports, Hot Stone or something even more specific. You may not even be sure just yet and that’s ok – there’s a whole world of therapies out there to choose from.
Massage has been practiced for thousands of years. Today, if you need or want a massage, you can choose from about 80 massage therapy styles with a wide variety of pressures, movements, and techniques. These all involve pressing, rubbing, or manipulating muscles and other soft tissues with hands and fingers. Sometimes, even forearms, elbows, or feet are used.
According to the American Massage Therapy Association, in 2018, approximately 19% of Americans had some form of massage.. And, they have a wide range of reasons for doing so. More and more people — especially baby boomers — recognize the health benefits of massage. They choose from among many massage styles to get relief from symptoms or to heal injuries, to help with certain health conditions, and to promote overall wellness.
We hold ourselves and our curriculum to high standards. That’s why we offer comprehensive massage therapy training. Our program is designed to provide hands-on training, clinical experience, and an in-depth understanding of what it takes to pursue a massage career. Our thorough curriculum is taught by experienced therapeutic massage professionals that are dedicated to helping new practitioners become established in the field.
We take a holistic approach to massage therapy, which means that we encourage our students to explore the personal development of their mind, body, and spirit. Our training programs and continuing education courses are a direct testament to this commitment.
