THE PROFESSION OF MASSAGE THERAPY

“The practice of Massage Therapy is the assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain (Massage Therapy Act, 1991).”

 

OUR GOAL

Our goal is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, confidence, and intuition to deliver manual therapeutic treatments to individuals in need of their care. We teach our students to treat their patients with kindness, compassion and understanding, using genuine intention in their interactions and to treat without judgment while delivering the highest possible level care.

 

FULL-TIME MASSAGE THERAPY PROGRAM

The Full-Time Massage Therapy program takes students through 5 semesters of evolving knowledge and skills pertaining to health sciences, clinical sciences, clinical practice, and professional practice. A strong health science foundation of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology progressively builds each semester, as does the complexity of massage techniques from an introductory level to a highly integrated set of treatment skills. Ethics, legislation, and practice management concepts are added and interwoven throughout the program, along with orthopedic assessment and rehabilitation skills. Students increasingly apply their skills in the student clinic and through patient outreach experiences.
