Massage Therapy (MAS) Program
The goal of our massage therapy program is to train students in therapeutic massage to reduce stress, assist in the injury recovery process, and improve the overall wellness in the clients they serve. The massage therapy program offers a certificate after the successful completion of two semesters of coursework. Courses cover topics such as human anatomy and physiology, professional communication, Swedish massage, Tai chi, neuromuscular triggerpoint therapy, sports massage, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, and other massage techniques.
Students receive hands-on training thru laboratory experience and community service. Employment opportunities exist in colleges, medical offices, healthcare facilities, rehabilitation facilities, and personal businesses. The massage therapy program at John A. Logan College provide students with enough contact hours and training to be eligible to apply for the massage therapy certification exam through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
