Choosing your massage therapy academic institution

Choosing your academic institution is an important step in becoming a massage therapist. Make sure to choose a reliable and well-established institution that offers training programs that are recognized by the leading professional associations. You may consult and compare the websites of different institutions to see what each has to offer; they often list their courses content and the name of the associations that recognized their program.

Learn about the academic institution

Some programs focus more on the biomechanical aspect of massage therapy, proposing an approach that focuses more on the mechanical dimension of the body, while others consider the duality body-mind in a more energetic approach. Take part in the information sessions and meet the professors to learn about the mind-set of the institution and see if it suits you.

We invite you to consult the list of the academic institutions recognized by the Association and to contact us at 1 800 461-1312 for any other concerns on these institutions and their training programs.
