Massage Studies

Our Massage Studies Program goes far beyond the minimum state requirements, focusing not only on different massage strokes and styles, but also on the knowledge and skills needed to be a successful licensed massage practitioner. Graduates of our program have consistently surpassed both state and national pass rates on the National Certification Examination for Therapeutic Massage. Our instructors are themselves successful licensed massage practitioners with years of experience both in the industry and as teaching professionals.

The day program starts fall quarter, and the evening program starts spring quarter.
