Use Your Training to Help Deliver Pain & Stress Relief with a Healing Touch

A career as a massage therapist allows students to enter a healing profession and work with an array of clientele.

The art and science of therapeutic massage is a branch of complementary healthcare that works to improve a person’s health and well-being through your hands-on manipulation of muscles and other soft tissues of the body.

Compassionate, self-motivated individuals are best suited for a career in therapeutic massage. There is an ever-increasing acceptance of massage as a holistic approach to healthcare and health maintenance and, as a result, your opportunities as a massage therapist will be abundant.

A clinical practicum experience in IBMC’s Student Massage Clinic is incorporated into training to provide you with skills needed to interact with clients.
