Massage Therapy

The Massage Therapy Course is designed to train the student in the basic manipulative skills, safety judgments, proper work habits, massage techniques, general anatomy, hydrotherapy, deep tissue massage, business skills and desirable attitudes to obtain licensure and for competency in job entry-level positions in Massage Therapy or related career field.

Upon completion of the course, students will receive a certificate of completion, and will qualify to take a state board test under the Board of Nursing to become licensed as a Massage Therapy. The state of Virginia currently does not require CEUS to maintain license. The license must be renewed every two years by paying the necessary fee. The schools works on clock hours and the total tuition is based on the cost of the course and not credit hours.
