Comprehensive Massage Therapist Certificate of Completion
This is a 750 hour program usually completed in 18 months.
This is our flagship program geared toward novices to bodywork and somatic therapies. It is both an entry-level, immersion/apprentice style massage therapy program where students will learn hands on techniques to alleviate pain and bring relaxation and comfort to those in need. And an additional focus of study for advanced therapies. Students will learn which health conditions are contraindicated for massage, and how to safely apply chair massage and hot stone massage and develop deductive reasoning skills for effective treatment plan development for those in pain or with specific musculo-skeletal issues. Upon successful completion of this 18-month, 750-hour program, the student will be presented with a formal Comprehensive Massage Therapist Certification of Completion, will be eligible to apply for the state board exam (MBLEx) and apply for State Licensing in Indiana, and afterward will be able to use the credential of ‘LMT’. (Please note: Indiana changes educational hour requirements from 500-hours to 625-hours for new license applicants effective on July 1, 2019 Indiana General Assembly 2018 HEA 1130)
Our students learn hands-on skills starting on the first day of class because it’s important to develop a sense of touch essential to this career. We spread the anatomy and physiology portion of the class out over the course of many months as to not overwhelm the student with too many medical terms and muscle names at one time. Please see our curriculum for specific information taught in this program.
Our classes spend half the time teaching out of our textbooks, and half hands-on lab practicing various massage applications. Students should come to school dressed and prepared to give and or receive massage every class.
As our newest classes for beginners, the program lasts a total of 72 weeks spread out through an 18-month period. The total weekly hourly commitment for the program is 12 hours/week.
There will be 8 set supervised classroom & lab hours on specific class days. In addition, an average of 4 supervised, onsite clinical hours with documentation per week. This occurs outside of class time. The Student Massage Clinic will be open at various times during the week for students to come and practice or fulfill clinic hours.
Session I – Mondays 10:00am – 6:00pm (starts July 16, 2018)
Session II – Saturdays 10:00am – 6:00pm (starts October 20, 2018)
*A shorter completion time is available to novice students who wish to accelerate their program. Students who wish to accelerate will make special arrangements with our administrators for an individualized education plan and will be dependent on class and instructor availability.
