Massage Therapy Course

What is Massage Therapist?

Massage therapist is a licensed professional that practices the use of touch to manipulate the soft-tissue muscles of the body. The massage is performed for a variety of reasons, including treating painful ailments, decompressing tired and overworked muscles, reducing stress, rehabilitating sports injuries, and promoting general health.


The Massage Therapy program is a total of 600 hours and may be completed in as little as eight months.

The New Age Spa Institute Professional Massage Program prepares students to become successful Massage Therapists in as little as eight months. The Program exceeds standards set by National Certification, and by most state and municipal governments for licensing.

The Professional Massage Therapy Program teaches the art and science of massage therapy, while also teaching sound business practices, which prepare students for success in the marketplace.

At The New Age Spa Institute Massage School our goal is to provide quality instruction at a reasonable cost, so this is why all of our instructors are some of the top actively working practitioners in the industry.

Our classes in all of our programs are small, relaxed and friendly. Competency is assessed by a combination of practical learning tasks both in the classroom and in the work environment and a theory at the end of each unit. This reduces pressure of a large examination at the end of a course, and also enables us to pinpoint any areas of difficulty during the course rather then at the end.

Assessment is an integral part of the overall course. The New Age Spa Institute delivers training and assessment using the principles of competency based training. This means that student’s performance is assessed on their ability to perform the tasks in the industry standards.

To ensure that we cater for a variety of learning styles and student’s needs, a range of assessment strategies are included such as:

• Practical demonstration of skills

• Short written tests and exercises

• Observation of process

• Oral questioning

• Student workbook




Just as in our esthetic course, The New Age Spa Institute Massage Course tuition includes all supplies, books and workbooks and any materials supporting the massage therapy study course.

It is designed to provide the student with all the necessary tools that are required to successfully enter the massage profession industry.
