Massage Therapy

Using the healing power of touch to help others

Skilled Massage Therapists use the healing power of touch to help their clients. Massage Therapists manipulate soft tissue and muscles to relieve and manage pain, heal, rehabilitate injuries, improve circulation, relieve stress, and aid in the overall well-being of their clients.

As more patients and health care providers understand the benefits of massage, the demand for trained Massage Therapists is expected to increase to provide these services.

Job Growth Outlook:

Employment of Massage Therapists is projected to grow 22 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Continued growth in the demand for massage services will lead to new openings for Massage Therapists.

As an increasing number of states adopt licensing requirements and standards for therapists, the practice of massage is likely to be respected and accepted by more people as a way to treat pain and to improve overall wellness.

Massage Therapist Overview

Massage Therapists treat clients by using touch to manipulate the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. With their touch, therapists relieve pain, help heal injuries, improve circulation, relieve stress, increase relaxation, and aid in the general wellness of clients.

Massage Therapists routinely perform a variety of tasks, including:

  • Booking clients and scheduling appointments.
  • Talking with clients about their symptoms, medical history, and desired results.
  • Evaluating clients to locate painful or tense areas of the body.
  • Manipulating muscles and other soft tissues of the body.
  • Providing clients with guidance on stretching, strengthening, overall relaxation, and how to improve their posture.
  • Recording clients’ notes, conditions and progress.

The Massage Therapy program at Nevada Career Institute focuses on teaching the skills and best practices needed to work in a wide array of settings, such as spas, franchised clinics, physicians’ offices, hotels, client’s homes and fitness centers.
