Students in the Massage & Asian Holistic Health programs are immersed in programs that truly embody balance, bringing the best of both Eastern and Western massage. Students study and apply Tui Na, Swedish massage, shiatsu, Thai massage and a host of other styles. Biomedical courses help prepare practitioners for both medical and spa settings and allow them to fully understand how massage techniques affect the body on a physical level.
As an intern in the clinic, you will work as part of a holistic medical team, comprised of massage practitioners, licensed acupuncturists, supervisors and fellow students. The clinical experience gives you the practical, hands-on experience you need to make a smooth transition into a professional clinic.
Pacific College’s Associate of Occupational Studies in Massage Therapies program develops students into expertly trained body therapists. This degree in massage therapy integrates Asian and Western bodywork therapy, including topics such as anatomy, physiology, general pathology, kinesiology, and Eastern and Western massage.
