|Altura College’s Massage Therapy Program is accredited by the Commission On Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA). Visit their webpage here to learn why accreditation matters. And not just any accreditation, accreditation by a commission that is focused on massage programs only.
Ours is a comprehensive lecture and hands-on educational experience. Our students become proficient in Swedish techniques and study a variety of other manual therapy techniques. They gain communication skills and professional experience in their student clinic shifts.
The objective of our massage therapy program is to provide an excellent education that will prepare the student to pass the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEx) and then receive their Washington and/or Idaho State massage license.
Our program allows our students to grow individually and achieve professionally in their schooling and on into the professional avenues they choose.
Graduates from our program are able to skillfully assess individual patient needs and goals, create and execute an effective treatment plan, and encourage patient self care through education.
