Every state approved Massage Therapy program in Ohio conforms to a basic set of educational guidelines as determined by the State Medical Board of Ohio, however, these guidelines allow a great deal of room for individuality within each program.
At Hocking College, we believe that our massage therapy program offers one of the most comprehensive programs in Ohio. Our state-approved program is designed to prepare students to successfully enter into this exciting profession with much more than just entry-level skills.
In addition to the general massage procedures taught in most schools, our program additionally provides a solid foundation in advanced clinically-based treatment and assessment skills.
We offer both a certificate (3 semesters) and degree (4 semesters) program, both of which equally prepare the graduate for taking the licensing examination and both meet the Ohio Medical Board requirements for licensure in this state. And because Hocking College is a state-run college, the cost of our program is significantly less than many other massage therapy programs.
