Massage Therapy - Diploma
The objective of Arizona College's Massage Therapy program is to provide a sound education environment for instruction and training to equip its graduates for entry level jobs as massage therapists. This is accomplished through approximately one half of the course consisting of lecture/demonstration and one half hands-on laboratory procedures.
Massage therapy is a service-oriented career, providing the skilled application of a variety of massage techniques and modalities and helping to access what type of work would be most beneficial for the client/patient. A strong background in anatomy and physiology will benefit the therapist in understanding movement and dysfunction. Business skills include marketing, office procedures, charting, and client communications.
Arizona College's Massage Therapy academic program is three 3 quarters in length, each quarter consisting of ten weeks. The program length will be approximately 30 weeks in duration.
