Massage Therapist/Asian Bodywork Certificate
The Massage Therapist/ Asian Bodywork Certificate program has been specially designed to merge Pacific College’s quality education with convenience. A blend of expertly instructed classroom and online courses in Asian Bodywork and Massage Therapy offers the opportunity to practice hands-on training on campus with our distinguished faculty while doing some of your coursework on your own time, in your own space.
The purpose of the Massage Therapist/Asian Bodywork program is to prepare students for employment in massage therapy either in private practice, or a wide variety of healthcare or spa settings. Emphasis is placed on Oriental medical theory and Chinese therapeutic massage. The program develops the students’ ability to understand the causes and symptoms of disease, enabling them to customize their massage therapy to the client’s condition. Students in the certificate program receive an introduction to the valuable theories of Chinese medicine, and practice a variety of Asian bodywork therapies, including tui na, shiatsu, and Thai massage among others.
The Massage Therapist/Asian Bodywork Certificate is a 33.5 unit program of theory and clinical practice that meets the requirements for certification by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB), as well as the requirements for California licensure.
