About our Massage Therapy Degree

Massage Therapy training will provide you with the physical, technical, and academic skills to begin a career in the expanding field of massage therapy. You will receive extensive training in massage and bodywork assessment, theory, and application, enabling you to perform a wide range of massage techniques in relaxation, pain management, and injury recovery. When you complete the program, you 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, you may choose to become a private practitioner opening your own massage therapy business, work in a salon or spa, or even travel the globe working in resorts or on a cruise ship. If you prefer clinical applications, work with a chiropractor or in a health club.
