The Curriculum

Massage Technique

This subject allows us to teach the basic principles of massage therapy. Our goal is to impart the science and art of massage therapy to every student so they can provide the best massage possible. In addition, you will also learn effective spa and clinical massage therapies. 

Health & Hygiene

Students will understand indication and contraindications to massage, the effects of stress, the benefits of massage, the importance of proper body mechanics, disease recognition and understanding, the importance of good personal hygiene practices, and universal precautions.

Anatomy & Physiology

Understanding the structure and function of the human body with an emphasis on the muscular and skeletal systems is of utmost importance to the skilled massage therapist. We use live models and class projects to help students better comprehend the structure and function of the human body. 


Students will learn the interaction of the bones, joints and muscles. With this understanding, they will be able to better identify which specific structures are involved in an area of pain when working with clients.

Business Practices & Professional Ethics

From advertising practices to maintaining your zeal for massage therapy, students will be equipped to build a massage practice they can be proud of. In addition, we will discuss in detail the scope of practice for massage therapy, laws pertaining to massage therapy, and many more business practices in general.


Students will learn to use hydrotherapy in a safe and effective manner through demonstrations and hands-on practice. Types of hydrotherapy to be discussed include whirlpool, hot and cold packs, paraffin, steam, body wraps, and body scrubs.
