Massage therapy is one of the fastest-growing health care professions in the United States, and you can begin your training this fall at Olney Central College.
OCC’s Massage Therapy Certificate prepares students to work in the wellness area of professional massage therapy. Employment opportunities exist in hospitals, chiropractors’ offices, health care facilities and spas. Massage therapists also can choose to work as independent practitioners.
The program is full of innovative techniques, beginning with Swedish massage and touching on trigger point therapy, reflexology, energy work, spa treatments and hot stone therapy.
Students can earn the certificate in just three semesters. Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible to sit for the National Certification Exam in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
