Anatomy & Physiology
We utilize animated videos, exercises, and class projects to help students better comprehend the structure and function of the human body. Our textbooks are specifically designed for massage therapy students and correspond with full-color, animated presentations used in class.
Pathology is the study of human disease and the effects of disease on the human body. This information is vital to the massage therapist because there are conditions where massage would require caution or may not be recommended. It is also critical to recognize potential pathologies and inform clients of their risks.
Health & Hygiene
Students will study and understand indications and contraindications to massage, the effects of stress, the importance of proper body mechanics and self-care, proper sanitation for equipment, and the importance of good personal hygiene practices.
This course teaches the art of massage therapy. We begin with basic Swedish Massage strokes and gradually work students into providing a wonderful, relaxing massage. This subject aims to impart the science and art of massage therapy to every student to provide a relaxing massage, taking into account that every client is an individual and has individual needs for their massage. Once the student is confident in their Swedish skills, we introduce several other vital techniques such as deep tissue trigger point therapy, chair massage, and sports massage.
Understanding the structure and function of the human body with an emphasis on the muscular and skeletal systems is of utmost importance for skilled massage therapists.
