The Massage Therapy Program builds strong foundational Massage skills for students planning on entering the rapidly growing Massage Therapy Industry whether they choose to pursue: private practice, spas, fitness centers, sports teams, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, or chiropractic offices. Focus is placed on structural massage-the ability to couple and apply a deep understanding of anatomy with powerful tissue sculpting techniques in order to create radical change in the body. 50% of course time is devoted to hands-on activities including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial, Sports, Pregnancy, and Asian Massages. 25% of course time is spent on anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology as they pertain to Massage Therapy. The remainder of the course is devoted to addressing specific syndromes, delivering superior service in a safe manner, ethics, and business training applicable to the industry. In partnership with Gateway Community College, courses meet three and a half hours per day, Monday through Friday. This program is located at Gateway Community College at Deer Valley, 2931 West Bell Rd., Phoenix, AZ 85023.
