We emphasize integrative skills that are useful in clinical settings to treat and alleviate chronic pain, stress disorders, soft tissue strain, and systemic imbalances. A vast range of massage techniques and skills are taught with the intention of developing therapists who may use these techniques with the high level of proficiency and expertise demanded of a massage therapist in professional practice. Students are trained to work in a general massage therapy practice that typically treats clients for stress reduction, health maintenance, and increased well-being. These services are frequently offered to athletic clubs and teams, resorts, health spas, beauty spas, wellness centers, corporate health centers and various health-oriented groups and service centers. Our students graduate with the skills needed to be successful in all fields of massage therapy.
