Licensed Massage Therapist Program   

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues to promote health and wellness, reduce pain, and rehabilitate injury. Massage therapy has grown from a $6 billion industry in 2005 to a projected $16 billion industry in 2021 with an expected growth rate of 21% by 2029 as it becomes more integrated into daily health and wellness and western medicine. Massage therapists enjoy a median income of $42,820 while working an average of 26.6 hours a week with 88% of massage therapists reporting significant job satisfaction.

Massage therapy is a broad career path with nearly 100 styles and techniques allowing for a diverse range of employment settings and situations ranging from healthcare settings and private practices to spas and salons. As a licensed massage therapist, you are able to aid people with painful ailments, assist in rehabilitating injury, reduce stress, and promote health and wellbeing using natural methods.

This career path takes physical stamina, compassion and empathy, and strong communication skills. A strong foundational knowledge of the human body, savvy business skills, and a diversified skill set in both Eastern and Western massage techniques contribute to a successful massage therapist and are all skills that are covered in this clinical massage therapy program.

Students will complete 890 program hours before applying to take the MBLEx exam and receiving state licensure. This comprehensive clinical massage therapy program will give you a strong foundational knowledge of the human body and will cover theories and practices within the field of massage therapy, and various modalities and techniques in addition to interpersonal skills, ethics, and business practices. Classes are interactive and led by skillful massage therapists with years of experience. The clinical massage therapy program at Helena College is committed to excellent teaching, compassionate support, and professional and personal growth.
