PROGRAM OBJECTIVE:

The objective of the program is to prepare students to enter the workforce as an entry level Massage Therapist. The program provides the student with a career in the rapidly growing profession of massage therapy, which provides the student with an opportunity to gain satisfaction in helping clients to recover from injuries and improve overall wellness, as well as treat clients with chronic diseases.

WHAT DO THEY DO?

Massage therapists treat clients by using touch to manipulate the soft-tissues of the body. With their touch, therapists relieve pain, help rehabilitate injuries, improve circulation, relieve stress, increase relaxation, and aid in the general wellness of clients. 

A massage can be as short as 5–10 minutes or could last more than an hour. Massage therapists talk with clients about what they hope to achieve through massage. Some massage therapists suggest personalized treatment plans for their clients. They also may offer clients information about additional relaxation techniques to practice between sessions. 

Massage therapists can specialize in many different types of massage, called modalities. Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, and sports massage are just a few of the many modalities of massage therapy. Most massage therapists specialize in several modalities, which require different techniques.
