massage therapy

As a Massage Therapist, through relaxation or deep touch, YOUR hands have the power to heal. In just two semesters at Washington State, you can become a licensed massage therapist. You will learn to manipulate soft tissues of the body as well as treat diseases and disorders of the human body and help anyone from orthopedic conditions to autoimmune disorders.

Once perceived as a means of pampering, massage therapy is recognized as a medical therapeutic service, and as such, massage therapists are now considered medical professionals. Our graduates work in an array of health and wellness specialties including salon and day spas, medical offices, healthcare facilities, and private practices, just to name a few.

The career opportunities in this field are as diverse as the clients you will serve because every one is different. You will be helping people of varying degrees of health—the very healthy, active, and physically fit to those of average fitness, unhealthy, and even terminally ill. They can also range in age and include newborns, small children, working adults, pregnant women, and geriatrics.

It’s important to note that we offer the only Massage therapy program in this area and have the lowest tuition of any massage program in the state.

Admission to the massage therapy program is limited and is made on a first-come, first-serve basis.
