You will also learn how to appropriately navigate the human body by learning top-tier massage techniques—using an elite proprietary philosophy known as WorkSmart—and by learning about the skeleton, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, endangerment sites, and much more. Additionally, you will receive an in-depth analysis of all major body systems including the skeletal system, muscular system, integumentary system, nervous system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system, endocrine system, reproductive system, urinary system, digestive system, and respiratory system. Furthermore, you will learn how to formulate good decision-making skills, as is needed, when treating clients with pathological diseases, medical conditions, and other bodily concerns that may alter the course of treatment. Finally, you will learn how to engage with your clients in a professional and ethical manner and how to navigate unexpected situations you may encounter.
Success in our program is driven by sheer will and determination. Bring with you, love, passion, kindness, a competitive mind, and an unwavering attitude to be the best student, peer, and future massage therapist.
