Pacific College’s Massage Therapy School
Are you seeking a deeper meaning in your professional life? Do you love helping others and understand how true healing comes from a deeply holistic, mind/body/spirit approach? Then massage therapy school is for you.
If you are considering enrolling in school to become a massage therapist, you probably already know the many benefits massage therapy offers for one’s health. Massage therapy is one of the oldest health practices still currently in use across the world. It is a clinically proven treatment for a range of conditions ranging from acute and chronic pain to anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, or even prenatal and infant care, and more. During your massage therapy training, you will gain the essential anatomy, physiology and pathology knowledge necessary to become a highly trained professional, as well as a wide range of bodywork modalities so you can work in a variety of settings and address many different conditions.
Throughout the U.S., there is a growing demand for massage practitioners who can offer holistic healing that combines traditional medicine techniques with the latest evidence-driven clinical solutions. Qualified massage therapists have the unique opportunity to apply their skills in many different settings such as within a hospital, holistic health clinic, chiropractor’s office, spa, in private practice, or even in sports-focused environments.
Pacific College’s Massage Therapy Programs
At Pacific College, massage therapy students learn to use techniques that combine Eastern bodywork traditions with Western science. Graduates of Pacific College’s massage therapy programs have the competitive edge in an industry that is rapidly shifting to modern integrated care practices. In China and Japan, therapeutic massage is one of the major branches of the traditional healing arts. Hospitals in China commonly include an entire department devoted to massage therapy, working with the acupuncture and herbal departments to create a comprehensive plan of treatment.
Pacific College’s massage therapy programs reflect the college’s respect for this type of “complete” massage practitioner. You will receive in-depth training in all the Western bodywork modalities like at any other massage school, such as Swedish massage, sports massage, neuromuscular therapy, and even prenatal massage or aromatherapy. In addition, depending on your campus of choice, you may also select courses from a wide array of electives including acupressure, Chinese tui na, Japanese shiatsu, Thai massage, taiji, qigong, and more.
You may choose to study at one of our three beautiful campuses in San Diego, New York, or Chicago. In each massage therapy program, you will also get a chance to practice your skills on the public at one of our busy on-site clinics, under the supervision of an instructor.
Pacific College’s massage therapy programs are endorsed under the umbrella of the college’s prestigious WASC accreditation. The San Diego massage program is also approved under the California Massage Therapy Council.
