Massage Therapy

Overview

Massage Therapists help others to stay fit physically, mentally and emotionally by massaging areas of the body such as the back, neck, limbs, head and feet. Massage therapists manipulate soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain. Graduates of the program integrate manual massage techniques to positively contribute to the well being of the client in a safe and skillful manner.
