This 1125 hour, 12 month program is a combination of our proven Massage and Bodywork Program with that of our Eastern Bodywork / Shiatsu Program, and is designed to help students who want to become a massage therapist and shiatsu practitioner, and also meet the requirements for New Jersey Certification, New York Licensure, and the National Certification for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork Examination.
In it, both Eastern and Western approaches to massage therapy are explored, and the program was designed and intended for those individuals with no prior training or experience in massage therapy.
The art of massage is taught with an emphasis on both Eastern and Western Massage Modalities. The Eastern approach focuses on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Shiatsu, while the Western approach combines a variety of modalities commonly used in both the spa environment as well as for clinical application and rehabilitation. Modalities taught include: Therapeutic Swedish Massage, Medical Massage, Myofascial Release and Trigger Point Therapy as well as others.
This program prepares the student for work in a variety of massage therapy settings including: spas and wellness centers, chiropractors and physical therapists’ offices as well as in private practice. Students will learn the many aspects of marketing and establishment of a private practice through our comprehensive Professional Development and Business courses.
This program exceeds all the educational requirements needed for New Jersey Certification, as well as those states that require 1000+ hours of training to get their license, such as New York State. Students are also able to sit for the National Certification Examination (NCE).
