Massage Therapy is the practice of soft tissue manipulation with physical; functional; and, in some cases, psychological purposes and goals. Massage involves acting on and manipulating the body with pressure – structured, unstructured; stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints or other connective tissue; as well as, lymphatic vessels; or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, forearms and feet.
Students are taught Massage Therapy using specialized massage tables and chairs to position clients during massages. FCTC graduates are prepared for the workforce through “hands-on training” in a brand new classroom and laboratory setting.
FCTC graduates can expect a variety of working environments including clients’ homes, doctors’ offices, physical therapy clinics, salons and spas, fitness and recreational sports centers and hotels.
