Massage Therapy Program

Massage Therapy Program Gedt

In 1987, AMC established a six-month Massage Therapy training program. This course was originally designed for our Acupuncture students. It enabled them, in just a few short months, to earn a living practicing Shiatsu, while completing their Acupuncture studies.

In 1988, we expanded our program to a seven month massage therapy program, welcoming all qualified students who want to become Massage Therapists. We are specifically designed for those who wish to specialize in Shiatsu. For more details, see the Massage Therapy Program's course descriptions.

In January of 2000 our Massage Therapy Program underwent a major curriculum change. Now we can boast that over 80 percent of our bodywork classes teach a form of Oriental Bodywork. We follow the Shiatsu system of Professor Tomiezo Hoshino.

In August of 2007, we lengthened the Massage Therapy program to 720 hours. This enabled us to expand our clinic training and ensure that our graduates receive extensive practical experience.

The Massage Therapy Program enrolls new students on a monthly basis, contact our Admissions Director to find out when the next enrollment date is!
