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 Swedish 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 Swedish massage on actual clients, under supervision of licensed massage therapists and/or instructors. Program content includes: fundamentals of massage and bodywork therapies, deep tissue massage, anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, business, history and theory of therapeutic massage, communication, wellness, ethics, community outreach, and pathology. Elective
modalities related to the field of massage therapy will also be required (*CPR/first aid is mandatory in order to graduate from this program).

Core Program Classes will meet Tuesday and Wednesdays and times are TBD.

Located at Bodycraft Wellness & Massage Center LLC., 461 North Mulford Road, Unit 1, Rockford, Illinois 61107.

Upon successful completion of this program, students will receive a certificate from Bodycraft Wellness & Massage Center, LLC. Students then become eligible to take their MBLEX exam. Upon passing the exam, students can then apply for Illinois state license under the Department of Financial and Professional Regulations division. Successful completion does not guarantee employment, but
strong support and guidance will be offered.

Electives and supplies priced separately.
