Healthcare is moving from a field devoted to treatment and focusing more on prevention. The moving focus to a holistic approach to health care and maintenance makes Massage Therapy one of the fastest growing professions in the health care field.
Massage therapy is a proven healing method involving the manipulation of muscles and other soft tissue to increase blood and oxygen flow throughout the body to relieve pain, enhance function and encourage relaxation.
The Therapeutic Massage Program at SCC focuses on Swedish and basic massage techniques while providing students with knowledge of anatomy, physiology and general wellness practices. Students also learn the business skills and ethical responsibilities needed to be successful health care providers in this diverse field.
The Massage Therapy curriculum involves three consecutive semesters of core courses starting the fall of each year with the option of continuing your education toward an associate degree.
This hands-on program prepares graduates for the Massage & Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEx).
