Through the massage therapy program, students develop the art of marrying science, assessment and massage techniques in a style that prepares them to practice in a variety of settings. The in-depth study of Western modalities, such as Swedish, Deep Tissue and Medical Massage, integrated with a strong core of anatomy, physiology and pathology provides the students with a multi-faceted foundation. Courses in this program also include training in Hydrotherapy, Special Populations, Business and Professional Ethics, as well as Allied Modalities, an introduction to Eastern Modalities, including Thai Massage, Reflexology and Aromatherapy. This curriculum contains a strong core of theory with an emphasis on practical hands on skills practiced in the classroom as well as in a supervised clinical setting. Georgia Career Institute prepares students to sit for the Federation of State Massage Therapy Exam (MBLEx) or National Certification for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork Exam (NCBTMB). Upon passing either examination the graduate may apply for a state license.
