Massage Therapy



The Massage Therapy program at Emily Griffith Technical College stems from a successful partnership with local massage clinics and is designed for students who are interested in learning the skills of promoting healing through health, touch and wellness. The program teaches the art of Massage Therapy thus preparing students for a meaningful career by offering a strong balance of courses focusing on anatomy and physiology, pathology, best business practices and ethics and lifestyle wellness.

Students will be able to practice on actual clients in Emily's Massage Clinic under faculty guidance. Throughout the program students will participate in workshops with massage professionals and attend numerous massage business learning excursions. At the end of the program students will be prepared for the Colorado MBLex examination.

Upon successful completion of the program and the MBLex examination graduates will be able to begin a career as licensed massage therapists in a clinical environment, spa, health club or resort.
