Massage Therapy

The Massage Therapy program provides our students with training for a future in therapeutic massage therapy.  Students are trained in massage therapy and practice their massage therapy skills in our in-house clinic.  This program normally takes three (3) terms to complete.

Massage Therapists in the State of Missouri are required to graduate from an approved massage therapy program and successfully pass an approved certification examination in order to obtain licensure.  The Missouri Board of Therapeutic Massage requires a federal background check prior to application for student licensure.  Students must meet the requirements of the Missouri Board of Therapeutic Massage to successfully obtain student and professional licensure.  Metro Business College students who complete the Massage Therapy program must successfully pass the approved certification examination in order to graduate.  Metro Business College will submit the application for the student license on behalf of the student.  It is the graduate’s responsibility to apply for professional licensure through the State Board.

Students must complete the core courses (those with a MED and MST prefix) with a minimum of a “C” to graduate.
