North Carolina Massage Therapy Schools - NC

There are a number of massage therapy schools in New York, most of which can be completed in six months for much less than a traditional four-year education. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the specialty, courses can not be completed on-line (though some programs allow students to take some classes on-line), but many can be completed in evenings making it a perfect choice for those who are already employed elsewhere.

Most online programs and those offered through a New York massage school include a mixture of medical school type courses such as anatomy and physiology as well as both eastern (including acupuncture and shiatsu) and western (such as Swedish) massage techniques. Some programs even offer exchange programs with China where students will study acupuncture and Chinese herbal treatments. Also, because many graduates will work for themselves upon graduation, many of the courses focus on the business and communication skills that will help new massage therapists market themselves and manage their businesses.

The great thing about massage therapy schools in New York is that while you will have to spend 1,000 hours massaging your fellow students, you’ll also get massaged yourself! What better way to unwind from a tough day of classes than a nice massage?

Also of note, most massage therapy schools in New York offer financial aid to students, career counseling upon graduation, and a 100 hour course that certifies them to practice nationwide. All of the above make the initial investment in a massage therapy education a sound one.

Through campus based and online programs, aspiring Massage Therapists in New York, Buffalo, Rochester, Yonkers and Syracuse, New York may be able to prepare themselves for the possibility of employment in some of the largest hospitals and healthcare facilities in the state including the Presbyterian Hospital, Bellevue Hospital, St. Luke's Hospital, Jamaica Hospital Medical Center and Brookdale Hospital.
