Massage therapy classes provide students the education and training needed to begin a massage therapy career. They often include courses in Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, and Kinesiology, in addition to a specific number of clinical, hands-on massage hours learning massage techniques.
Massage Education Guide (MEG) provides a detailed list of all U.S. massage schools with links to each school's website, where you can see information about the school, when massage therapy classes are held, details about types of massage therapy that is taught, and information about student clinic.
Student clinics provide an opportunity to get a massage at a reasonable price, while also giving the student hands-on clinical experience.
Be sure to ask lots of questions about what types of massage therapy are offered in student clinic when you contact the school for your appointment.
For instance, for students who want to work in a spa after massage school, the school will usually offer body wraps, hot stone massage, and aromatherapy massage...three treatments very commonly performed in a spa setting.
What to expect in a student clinic:
You should communicate with the therapist if anything hurts or is uncomfortable. The massage should be relaxing and stress-free...that's the whole purpose after all!
If you are considering starting a massage therapy career, you should know that massage therapy is one profession that is expected to flourish over the next 10-20 years. Many are choosing this career path now, in anticipation of a prosperous future.
