“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

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 orthopaedic assessment and rehabilitation skills. Students increasingly apply their skills in the student clinic and through patient outreach experiences.
