Erin Chose Massage Therapy to Support her Family

As a single parent, Erin was looking for an opportunity that allowed flexibility while still being able to support her family. Though Erin was interested in entering the medical field, she knew that would be time-consuming and tuition would be costly. When researching her options, Erin discovered massage therapy, and she knew it was the perfect solution! She quickly enrolled in a massage therapy training program, which offered affordable tuition and allowed her to complete her coursework in just one year.


While in the program, students will be trained in the practice of Swedish and Eastern massage therapy. Our students will develop a truly holistic approach to the preservation and restoration of human health through an integration of coursework in human anatomy and physiology.

Our graduates are qualified to sit for both the New York State and national licensing exams (MBLEx).
