ACC Combines Art and Science with the Massage Therapy Program

 

Alvin Community College Continuing Education Workforce Development is offering a Massage Therapy program that will help you develop the skills needed to start working in this growing industry.

 

Massage is a healing art and science that requires a balance of academic and technical knowledge; clinical skills; manual dexterity; sensitivity and awareness. The profession has made tremendous advances and has become part of main-stream health and healing.

 

According to the US Department of Labor, career opportunities for massage therapists are expected to grow by nineteen percent by 2018. Growing interest in alternative medicine and holistic healing will translate into new openings for those skilled in massage therapy.

 

“Many doctors’ offices and hospitals, like MD Anderson and Methodist, are hiring massage therapists for patient care,” said Dr. Stacy Ebert, Massage Therapy Program coordinator. “Students graduating from the ACC Massage Therapy Program will be able to work in a variety of different medical environments.”

 

This one-year, intensive program features both classroom instruction as well as hands-on training. Students who complete the program will be prepared to take the National Certification Examination and State Jurisprudence Examination to become a licensed massage therapist in the state of Texas.

 

The 500-hour Massage Therapy Program begins August 29, 2011 and runs through March 22, 2012. Morning and evening classes are available.

 

To learn more about the admission requirements for the program contact Dr. Stacy Ebert at sebert@alvincollege.edu or call 281.756.3787 or go to www.alvincollege.edu/cewd.
