Considering A Career In Massage Therapy?

A Local Opportunity

Back To Bliss is offering a class that was developed by a massage therapy school as a ‘first look’ into the career. When potential students would question whether or not they were ready to commit to a full year long massage therapy program, the school would steer them towards a version of the 15-hour course we are offering. Let’s face it, the commitment of time and money is often scary. Many potential students know they like to give back rubs to family and friends, but they have very little real experience or knowledge about professional massage. This course is the answer to these questions. It was designed to teach a full body oil massage in a group setting.

Students expressing any interest in Massage Therapy as a career can get an authentic experience of what it would be like to give massages as a professional. Taking this course will give enough experience to confirm or remove any doubts about massage as a career before students take the large step of committing to a full program.

Course Details

The course material covers a full body oil massage on professional tables. It is a public class for all ages. Minors under the age of 18 can attend with parental consent. We actually encourage parents to take the class with their child so they can talk about the career choice together. You can also find an online link to information regarding this massage course below:
