Keiser University’s Associate of Science degree in Massage Therapy is a comprehensive program that prepares students to become licensed massage therapists in Florida and perform therapeutic massage in a wide range of professional settings (including medical offices, hospice, rehabilitative facilities and spas), as well as establish and run a successful private therapeutic massage practice. The program focuses on the following areas of study, which are essential to successfully pass the Florida massage licensing exam: anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, pathology, and applied therapeutic massage techniques. In addition, students learn Eastern bodywork and Western massage modalities, sports massage, hydrotherapy, and Florida Law pertaining to massage.
Students in this program learn about the human body’s structure and biomechanical principles, as well as the dynamics of designing an effective massage session that includes assessment and treatment plans. Students are provided with information about the professional nature of massage, including state licensing and codes of ethics, and gain extensive hands-on experience in a clinical setting through working on peers and the public. The program introduces students to various Eastern and Western massage types. Graduates are assisted in obtaining employment as licensed massage therapists.
