Helping Canadians get back to work.

Massage Therapy

Program Description

The Massage Therapy program, developed by Medix School in Ontario, will prepare graduates to work in one of the fastest growing health professions in Canada. This field has been growing rapidly as a result of a healthcare system that promotes individual well-being. In addition, there is an increasing trend for practitioners to see massage therapy as an important rehabilitation tool for clients. This training takes place over 8 blocks with considerable hands-on practice under faculty supervision.

The profession of massage therapy is regulated within the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. In order to practice as a Massage Therapist in the province, one must successfully complete the College of Massage Therapists of Newfoundland and Labrador (CMTNL) certification examination. Graduates of Academy Canada’s Massage Therapy diploma program are eligible to write the CMTNL certification examination.

The purpose of the CMTNL is to set and enforce standards respecting massage therapy in the public interest. The CMTNL establishes standards for massage therapy practice and administers examinations to ensure that entry level competency standards are met.

Upon successful completion of Academy Canada’s massage therapy program, graduates can take the next step with the CMTNL certification examination. This third party examination is at the expense of the student. Please refer to the CMTNL website for exam details and links.

Massage Therapy graduates can also take advantage of Academy Canada’s Articulation Agreement with Thompson Rivers University (TRU) in Kamloops, BC which gives graduates advanced standing for 69 credits towards TRU’s Bachelor of Health Science degree.

Those who avail of this opportunity will be able to complete the remainder of this degree entirely online in less than 2 years. For more information please refer to:
