Massage & Bodywork Diploma Program
Our comprehensive, integrated Diploma curriculum has been our flagship program since 2002.
The program is organized in three units: Human Sciences for Massage Therapists and Bodyworkers, Massage and Bodywork, and Professional Development.
The material is presented in an innovative, integrated fashion intended to maximize students' retention of knowledge and technique. The curriculum is challenging, creative, and achievable, and empowers the students with confidence to achieve their goals of licensing, Board Certification, employment, or personal and professional enrichment.
The Diploma program is 625 clock hours long, above the 600 hours required by the State of Illinois Licensing Law, and well above the 500 hours that are required by AMTA, ABMP, National Certification, the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards' Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam (MBLEx).
The effectiveness of the Diploma program is illustrated by the school's statistics in completion rates, job placement, and licensing examination results.
Graduates are fully trained to find positions in spas, health clubs, health clinics, or to develop a private practice.
