Massage therapy is a fast growing field and one that is currently undergoing a lot of changes as we rediscover the long forgotten benefits of touch. Massage therapy as a career offers: Flexible hours, calm work environments and a job that is focused entirely on relaxation and health.  Massage therapists treat clients by using touch to manipulate muscles and other soft-tissues of the body. With trained touch, therapists relieve pain, help rehabilitate injuries, improve circulation, reduce stress, increase relaxation, and aid in the general wellbeing of clients. Massage therapists use different techniques to benefit the physical, emotional and mental health of clients of all ages, but the alleviating of physical and mental stress remains one of the most common reasons for requesting a massage.

According to the Colorado State Barber and Cosmetology Act: “Massage Therapy” is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.

The Curriculum of the Massage Program includes seven hundred and twenty five (725) Contact Hours or 24 Credits of technical instruction and practical operations covering all aspects of massage therapy.  Technical instruction means instruction by demonstration, lecture, classroom participation, or examination. Practical operation means the actual performance by the student of a complete service on another person.
