Clifton Forge, VA (Aug. 3, 2022) - Two 500-hour Massage Therapy programs are being offered in two locations, both beginning on Sep. 6 at the Mountain Gateway Community College (formerly Dabney S. Lancaster Community College) Rockbridge Regional Center in Buena Vista, and also at the Roanoke Higher Education Center in Roanoke.
Licensed Massage Therapists aid in the general wellness of clients by manipulating muscles and other soft tissues of the body to relieve pain, help heal injuries, improve circulation and relieve stress. Students who complete the training and pass the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam will be prepared to embark on a career in clinical massage.
For both locations, the lecture portion will be held online Monday through Thursday evenings, starting on Sep. 6, from 5:30 to 9 pm through Feb. 9, 2023.
In-person bodywork sessions will meet at the Rockbridge Regional Center, located at 35 Vista Links Drive, from Feb. 14 through Jun. 13, 2023 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 am to 4 pm.
In-person bodywork sessions will meet at the Roanoke Higher Education Center, located at 108 N. Jefferson St., from Feb. 13 through Jun. 14, 2023 on Monday through Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 9 pm.
