Massage Therapy


Massage therapists manipulate the soft tissue of one’s body by hand or through a mechanical or electrical apparatus for therapeutic purposes. A licensed massage therapist works in an array of settings, such as spas, franchised clinics, physicians’ offices, hotels, cruise ships and fitness centers. Some massage therapists also travel to clients’ homes or offices to give a massage.
The program is noncredit and nontransferable and helps to prepare students to enter the health care service industry in one year through our hands-on labs and classes. Upon completing the program and clock hours, you will take the Texas State Board Exam for licensure.
