Massage Therapy

The CTS Canadian Career College Massage Therapy Program provides a thorough education of both fundamental and advanced massage skills to prepare you for a career path as a massage therapist. Your diploma allows you to pursue career opportunities in physicians’ offices, spas, hotels, fitness centres or even explore self-employment. Throughout our 84-week program, you will study a wide range of massage therapy techniques as well as anatomy and pathophysiology related systems, health care terminology, nutrition and pharmacology. You will gain a strong knowledge of laws and regulations, ethics and professional practice and key business practices that help you launch a successful career.

Two clinical externships provide opportunities to treat members of the public in a safe and ethical manner and demonstrate effective communication and professional skills.

Upon successful completion of the program, you will be eligible to write the provincial certification exam with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO).
