The Clinical Massage Therapy Program teaches the art and science of massage therapy, while also teaching sound business practices which prepare students for success in the marketplace. In Massage Therapy Program, students learn light energy work as well as structural bodywork modalities, Eastern as well as Western theory and technique, and how to treat specific pain and dysfunction as well as a holistic approach to health and healing. Due to the fact that we are training health care practitioners, we have CPR training in our facility, other training include Anatomy & Physiology, Pathology, Body Mind, Swedish Massage and many more Allied.

Mount Eagle School of Massage Therapy (MESMT) not only prepares students to become proficient bodyworkers but also trains students to become successful in the marketplace, either as a sole practitioner, an independent contractor, or an employee.As part of the Massage Therapy Program curriculum, a student completes a comprehensive Professional Ethics, Law and Business course. This course includes techniques of enrollment, starting and operating a massage therapy business, presentation, advertising, resumé writing, job interviewing skills, and the integration of sound business practices with a holistic approach to health care. Students participate in the Clinical Internship, which provides them with on-the-job training in preparation for working professionally.

Program Description
Massage Therapy is a profession in which the practitioner applies manual techniques, and may apply adjunctive therapies, with the intention of positively affecting the health and well-being of the client. Therapeutic massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress; and to promote health and wellness. Massage therapy improves functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems and may improve the rate at which the body recovers from injury and illness.

The Massage Therapy Program provides learning experiences that enable the student to acquire and assimilate the necessary technical competencies to function effectively as a supportive health care provider in the Massage Therapy profession. This program is highly demanding, and students are therefore more successful if they do not work while in the program. If students must work for financial support, the program strongly recommends a limit of 20 hours of employment per week. Students should also consider family responsibilities before committing to a full-time academic program. To facilitate the clinical portion of the program, students are assigned to the on-site facility at the Mount Eagle College Campus.
