About this Program

The Massage Therapist Program prepares the graduate for the operation of his or her own massage therapy clinic or employment in another health care related setting. The graduate therapist is able to observe and assess the client�s musculoskeletal system, propose a treatment plan, implement the treatment plan and observe the client�s response to the treatment. Stress reduction, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular, Lymphatic, Somatic, Sports, Swedish, Geriatric and other manual soft tissue techniques are used. Documentation is done to record muscular pain and restrictions, postural distortions, fascial adhesions and the effects of stress on the body. Small business start-up and management provide a foundation for entrepreneurs. Therapists may find opportunities to work in a variety of settings.
