Rock Valley College is excited to announce the return of our Massage Therapy Training Program! And we would like to introduce Bodycraft Wellness & Massage Center LLC who will be offering a  600-hour/12-month training program to people pursuing a career in massage and bodywork therapies.

With a strong business edge and a well-rounded curriculum, this program has been designed to offer students a comprehensive education, combining lecture, demonstration, and clinical practice. Students will develop an in-depth understanding of the human body and its interactions, as well as a strong foundation in the areas of anatomy and physiology, applied kinesiology, and pathology.

This program involves hands-on learning of both basic relaxation and deep tissue massage techniques. After completing a certain portion of the program, student clinics will be available, which will allow students opportunities to perform a 60-minute relaxation massage on actual clients, under supervision of licensed massage therapists and/or instructors.

Program content includes:

  • Fundamentals of Massage & Bodywork Therapies
  • Deep Tissue & other modalities
  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Kinesiology
  • Business
  • Pathology
  • History & theory
  • Communication
  • Wellness

The Fall 2019 Massage Therapy Program will start on Monday, September 16, 2019 and will meet Monday-Thursday starting at 9am.  Ask us about our Night program 2020.
