Medical Massage Therapist Certificate Program


Somatherapy is pleased to launch our Medical Massage Therapist advanced certification program.  This advanced training program prepares a Certified Massage Therapist for work in sports, medical, and rehabilitation settings.  This new Certificate program gives CMTs the problem solving and assessment skills to work with the most challenging clients on their own or as part of a healthcare team.   

The Program requires that each student complete an additional 120 hours of targeted training ( approximately 4 additional courses) in our medical curriculum including but not limited to courses in advanced assessments, working with medical injuries I and II, myofascial release, lymph drainage,  and case studies in medical massage.  We are very excited to launch this program that so neatly ties in with the growing demand to have massage therapists folded into a health care team.   Students who complete this program and add additional hours will then have the required 750 hours to sit for the NCBTMB Board Certification Exam with additional qualifications.

Students and CMTs interesting in participating will need to have passed the core requirements and show proficiency in Anatomy & Physiology, Pathology and Kinesiology.  With the busy schedule of our CMTs in mind, students may take the curriculum over the course of 9-12 months with completion time of up to 2 years. 

This program can also be folded into our 1000 Holistic Health Practitioner program for the perfect balance of eastern and western techniques.
