Program Overview

Do you have a passion for health care and a desire to provide relief to people dealing with pain? An aging population, as well as greater public awareness of health issues, has resulted in more job opportunities in health occupations. The demand for massage therapy is also fueled by its growing popularity as a means of relaxation, stress relief and rehabilitation in today’s busy society.

In this program, students will acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to provide safe, effective and ethical care at the entry-level of practice within the massage therapy profession.

Major emphasis is placed on the development of effective interpersonal and communication skills, critical thinking, empathic responses and decision making. Students learn how to meet legal and ethical obligations according to legislative and profession-specific guidelines. Anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, massage theory, communication, entrepreneurial and professional skills are also emphasized.

The program’s foundation is based on the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics identified by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO).

In six semesters, students will have demonstrated the ability to:

  • Conduct a massage therapy practice within a legal, professional and ethical framework.
  • Apply business principles relevant to a massage therapy practice.
  • Communicate and collaborate effectively and professionally with clients, colleagues and members of the inter-professional team.
  • Develop and maintain therapeutic relationships to optimize clients’ health and wellness.
  • Collect and assess clients’ information to determine their state of health and the treatment goals.
  • Develop, implement and evaluate a plan of care according to the client’s condition and the treatment goals.
