The Therapeutic Massage curriculum prepares graduates to work in direct client care settings to provide
manipulation, methodical pressure, friction and kneading of the body for maintaining wellness or treating alterations in wellness throughout the lifespan.
Courses will include content in normal human anatomy and physiology, therapeutic massage, ethical/legal issues, business practices, nutrition and psychology.
Employment opportunities in North Carolina may be found in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, health departments, home health, medical offices, nursing homes, spas, health and sports clubs, and private practice. Graduates may be eligible to take the National Certification for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
Students may be required to take one or more Developmental courses as a result of pre-enrollment placement tests; therefore, the student may need more than the minimum number of contact hours listed for graduation.
Students who attend the College from out of state should be aware that the College has not made a determination whether programs or courses which lead to state licensure or certification meet educational requirements outside of North Carolina. Examples of such programs are Basic Law Enforcement Training, Cosmetology, Emergency Medical Science, Esthetics, Nursing, and Therapeutic Massage.
