an Education with a Touch!

Massage Therapy

During lecture, students are taught all about the body and how it works with visuals and PowerPoint.

Massage therapy is a profession that is being discovered at a rapid pace in today's society by a wide range of fields. Many of the medical, rehabilitation, and fitness professions are discovering the benefits of massage therapy; thus creating opportunities for licensed massage therapists. At River Valley School of Massage, we believe that professionally skilled therapists are the key to providing a stress free, relaxing environment for the world to enjoy.
