Massage Therapy

Learn how to create wellness through the power of touch. A good massage therapist can make a huge difference in someone’s life, as they can help destress and relax others in a natural way by making a connection through touch. It can help people recover from injury, feel better about themselves, and live healthier lives.

Pursue a Career in Wellness

The goal of our massage therapy program is to teach students the knowledge they need to succeed in the massage therapy industry. As part of our program, you can learn a balanced study of anatomy, physiology, pathology, aromaology, spa treatments, body movement techniques, and more.

With a focus on teaching things like energy work, alignment, and aromaology. Our course isn’t just an education, it’s a lifestyle!

Once you’ve met the graduation requirements, you can expect to be prepared to sit for the state exam and become a licensed massage therapist. You can pursue a career anywhere your passion takes you, from working in a spa to opening your own practice.

A Hands-On Education

As part of an education at Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes, learn in a way that fits your learning style. While you can expect some coursework to include lectures and textbooks for education in anatomy and the systems of the human body, that’s not all.

You can start applying what you’ve learned by providing massage services to actual clients in our student salon and spa in Denver and Provo. All services are provided under the supervision of licensed professionals, providing you with individualized instruction and the support you need to feel confident in your education.

If the cost of the program is holding you back from pursuing an education in massage, it’s possible to do what you love at Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes. You can apply for financial aid to balance the cost of pursuing an education in massage. Financial aid is available to those who qualify.

Talk to our Dream Makers to learn more about what options may be available to you, such as federal grants, loans, and monthly payment plans.
