Mission

To improve the massage profession for therapists and clients through supported learning.

Instruction

Instruction will alternate between lessons taught by Massage Lab staff, hands-on practice, and “from the field” q & a days. Video, research articles, books, and on-line education may also be used.

Our Residents

Massage Lab is intended for people who have completed their foundational program and obtained their license.

As such, residents may work in the field of massage while attending the Massage Lab program.

  • Work with clients who have specific conditions.
  • Improve research literacy.

  • Earn CEU’s.
  • Work toward Board Certification.

The program will take roughly one year to complete. Classes will rotate between lessons, practice, and mentorship. Length of class will range from two – eight hours depending on the topic.

Program tuition = $3600
