The College of Massage Therapy: Prospective Student Night

April 29, 2015 - The need for massage therapists is growing at a rapid rate and is expected to increase 20 percent from 2010 to 2020—faster than almost all other occupations. Training at the College of Massage Therapy at Bingham Memorial Hospital could open the door to a variety of career opportunities as a massage therapist in the health- and wellness-related industries.

Today, massage therapists play an important role in caring for a variety of medical issues, such as pain relief, increased joint flexibility, improvement of overall circulation, and reduction of post-surgery adhesions or swelling. More physicians are referring their patients to massage therapists, and there is an increasing demand for therapists who can work hand-in-hand with the medical community.

If you’re compassionate, respectful, and a good listener, then a career in massage therapy just might be for you. If you’re just starting out or looking to make a career change, you’re invited to attend our Prospective Student Night to learn more about becoming a massage therapist:

Thursday, May 7th

Starts at 6:00 p.m.
