Massage Core Training

Our Massage Therapist Core Training is designed to teach students what they need to know to produce outstanding results in the field of body work in a relatively short period of time. By combining a solid foundation in human biology with masterful techniques, we teach students the art and science of Massage Therapy at its best.

 

From this foundation, students will be well prepared to pursue careers in a variety of settings such as spas, medical clinics, private practice, cruise ships and perhaps even teaching bodywork.
