Massage Training builds skills promoting health & wellness
Massage therapy may be most commonly associated with stress relief, but practicing therapists are also needed to treat injuries, provide sports-related services, and even treat prenatal patients. Lincoln Tech’s Massage Therapy curriculum includes instruction and hands-on practice in several popular techniques, including Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Sports Massage. You’ll also develop a foundation of concepts such as reflexology, pathology, and the role of massage in strengthening the circulatory system. If something feels “off” in a client’s body during a massage, you’ll know how to address it thanks to instruction in the workings of the human muscular system.
Training is delivered in simulated spa settings on campus, and you’ll also prepare to sit for required licensing and certification exams. Prior to graduating, a clinical experience will help you put your training into practice in a spa or other massage therapy setting.
Call or visit the Moorestown campus to learn how you can put your potential to work as an in-demand healthcare professional.
