Students in our Massage Therapy Diploma Program will acquire all of the important skills and knowledge required to succeed in the healthcare and/or spa industries. Massage Therapists play an important role within the healthcare industry, assessing clients by conducting range of motion and muscles tests, proposing treatment plans and administering massage techniques. In the spa industry, they are key members of the client’s beauty and relaxation experience. Graduates can find long-term employment in private practice, hospitals, private clinics, extended care facilities, spas, resorts and many more.
What Is The Role of a Massage Therapist?
Massage Therapists perform a number of duties and have many different responsibilities. In a healthcare setting, they assess soft tissues and joints of the body for treatment and prevention of dysfunction, injury, pain and physical disorders and administer massage treatments to correct physical disorders, treat medical conditions and injuries and maintain wellness. In a spa or resort environment, Massage Therapists provide soothing, healing but luxurious deep tissue massages that bring calm and relaxation to their clients. No matter the workplace, Massage Therapists always reap the rewards of knowing they have brought relief, comfort and improved the mobility of the people they’ve worked on.
