Oxford College’s Massage Therapy program prepares students for a rewarding career in the healthcare field. Emphasizing client-focused care, our program gives you an in-depth and well-rounded understanding of a massage therapist’s role.
As a massage therapist, you will assess soft tissues and joints of the body for treatment and prevention of dysfunction, injury, pain, and physical disorders. Students will develop specialized knowledge and hands-on training to assist patients with relaxation and recovery. Upon graduation, you’ll be equipped to become a registered massage therapist (RMT) and work for yourself or an employer.
