See what our students and faculty have to say:

Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of normalizing those tissues. It consists of a group of manual techniques, using primarily the hands and sometimes the forearms and elbows, that include applying fixed or movable pressure of or to the body. These techniques affect the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, nervous and other systems of the body. The basic philosophy of massage therapy is to aid the ability of the body to heal itself and is aimed at achieving or increasing health and well being.*
