It is in our Hands On, Massage Therapy classes that the students actually learn massage therapy techniques.  Initially, the students start by learning the 5 basic strokes of massage.  After perfecting these strokes, we teach the students how to combine them into a sequence that fulfills the expectations of a full body Swedish relaxation massage.  Once completing their practicum, students will be introduced to progressively more complex massage techniques, ending with student clinic and our signature Condition Specific course where student use all their newly gained knowledge to begin to learn and develop critical thinking skills to develop treatment plans specific to their clients needs and requirements.
