Massage Therapy

Oxford College’s Massage Therapy program prepares students for a rewarding career in the healthcare field. Emphasizing client-focused care, our program gives you an in-depth and well-rounded understanding of a massage therapist’s role.

As a massage therapist, you will assess soft tissues and joints of the body for treatment and prevention of dysfunction, injury, pain, and physical disorders. Students will develop specialized knowledge and hands-on training to assist patients with relaxation and recovery. Upon graduation, you’ll be equipped to become a registered massage therapist (RMT) and work for yourself or an employer.

Students will learn how to:

  • Assess clients by conducting range-of-motion and muscle tests and propose treatment plans
  • Explain procedures, risks, and benefits to clients
  • Administer massage techniques, treating soft tissues and joints of the body through soft tissue manipulation, relaxation techniques, hydrotherapy, trigger point therapy, joint pain and lower grade mobilizations, remedial exercise programs, and client self-help programs
  • Suggest home care instructions and provide information about techniques for further postural improvement and stretching, strengthening, relaxation, and rehabilitative exercises
  • Maintain records of treatments given
  • Consult with other healthcare professionals such as physiotherapists, chiropractors, physicians, and psychologists when developing treatment plans for clients
