Career Training Objective

The College’s Massage Therapy program prepares students with knowledge of basic anatomy/physiology of the human body, as well as massage techniques designed to enhance the physical health of clients. The program is structured to develop proficient understanding of all body systems with particular emphasis on the skeletal and muscular systems of the body. Additionally, students in the Massage Therapy program are exposed to advanced medical terminology, hygiene, safety, and sanitation. To prepare students for practice as a Massage Therapist, knowledge of professional/business ethics and the legal issues related to the practice of Massage Therapy are included in the program.

The training program is divided into learning units called modules. Students must complete all modules. Each core module stands alone and is not dependent upon previous training. Completion of the program is acknowledged by the awarding of a diploma.

Attendance and/or graduation from a California Massage Therapy Council approved school does not guarantee certification by CAMTC. Applicant for certification shall meet all requirements as listed in California Business and Professions Code section 4600 et. seq.
