The growth in the field of the Therapeutic Massage profession has been exceptional in this country and around the world. Maryland has declared licensed massage therapists as recognized partners in the heathcare team. It has established a two-tier system in which individuals with basic massage qualifications may serve as practitioners of massage in non-healthcare settings. Those individuals who pursue an associate’s degree or higher in addition to their massage training have more doors open to them. As a result, the career path of licensed massage therapists is open to new settings such as physicians’ offices, clinics, hospitals, wellness centers, nursing homes, hospices, chiropractic offices, as well as the practice areas limited to registered massage practitioners such as private massage practice, health clubs, fitness centers, sports teams, spas, resorts, salons and cruise ships. The field is expanding as more and more people become acquainted with complementary and alternative therapies.
This two-year program is approved by the Maryland Board of Chiropractic and Massage Therapy Examiners.
