Moore Career College offers a diploma in massage therapy. Massage therapy is defined as the manipulation of soft tissue and connective tissue – along with the balancing of body energy – to enhance one’s health and sense of well-being. Massage therapy is one of the few careers that perfectly balances science and art. From a biological standpoint, massage improves circulation, provides pain management and pain relief, increases body awareness, helps correct system imbalances, reduces stress, enhances well-being and increases vitality. As an art, massage therapy is a unique means of creating a positive exchange of mental, emotional and spiritual energies for a comprehensive or holistic approach to healing.
