Massage Therapy

How does the campus Massage clinic work? 
The clinic runs as a real massage therapy business where you will learn the business side of a massage clinic. You will perform full body and chair massages depending on the client’s requests.

What if I want to start my own business? 
PCI helps you plan your success during the class, “Career Success for Massage Therapist,” which covers resumes, interviewing, and small business planning.

What if I want a faster program and attend during the day? 

For students that can attend school daily, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 to 5:00 pm for twelve weeks, we have an accelerated Massage Therapist program that you may be a good fit for you. 

This tuition is designed to be employer sponsored by Massage Envy.  What that means as that if you qualify and are offered employment and recommended for the program by Massage Envy before the start date, they will pay your student debt for all tuition expenses as long as you work for a participating location for 72 weeks (almost 18 months) following graduation.  The 72 weeks allow you to “earn out” the cost of the education, if you leave the class early or do not fulfill your employment obligation after graduation, you will be responsible for the remaining balance on your tuition.  Although it does mean you will be attending school for three months, at the end of the program you will be working for Massage Envy for over 30 hours per week (including some weekends and evenings).  First year total earnings potential according to Massage Envy for new full time therapists can range from $30k to $40k plus gratuities and bonuses, for total earning potential of over $50k. 

The Massage Therapy ME Program is fast paced and concentrated so that you can complete the required 500 hours of training for Massage Therapy in 12 weeks.  The program is designed to prepare students to be entry-level Massage Therapists at Massage Envy clinics and spas, and meets the Missouri Board of Therapeutic Massage requirements.  You will cover topics such as:

 

  • ·         Anatomy (form, function, diseases, movement and effect of technique)
  • ·         Swedish massage
  • ·         Deep tissue techniques
  • ·         Complimentary therapies
  • ·         Working with special population
  • ·         Professional ethics, bodywork laws and regulations
  • ·         CPR and First Aid certification
  • ·         MBLEx training and preparation
