Relaxing, Professional Swedish

Swedish Massage Therapist

Associate in Occupational Studies Degree Program 64 semester credits

Massage therapy is a licensed profession in New York State. The Massage Therapy degree program prepares students to take the New York State licensure exam, achieve licensure and enter the profession. Students use massage techniques to promote relaxation, reduce pain and treat a variety of medical conditions—all with a goal of wellness and healing.

We consider our integrated approach, involving both Western and Eastern theory and techniques, to be unique. Students learn classical Swedish massage and then add Five Element Shiatsu. They will learn advanced applications in Western techniques (such as sports massage, trigger point therapy and myofascial release) and will be introduced to complementary modalities such as Thai massage, Tuina, and reflexology. In-depth preparation in anatomy and physiology, massage-related pathology, neurology, and kinesiology provide the foundation for effective client assessment and treatment. Coursework in the ethics of client care, communication skills and client safety ensure that practice will be at a high professional level.

Extensive practice in the college’s stress reduction and therapeutic clinics and at community service externships prepares students for their future professional careers. Employment opportunities for licensed graduates are varied and include spas, health facilities, gyms, hospitals, corporate fitness centers, physical therapy clinics and chiropractic offices, or the option of establishing a private practice.

Graduates are awarded an Associate in Occupational Studies degree (AOS) as authorized by the New York State Board of Regents.
