The Massage Therapy Diploma program provides a solid foundation in anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology which form the basis for training in specific massage techniques. Hands-on techniques include Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Sports Massage, Basic Shiatsu, and Supervised Clinical Practice. The diploma program prepares the student for entry level positions in the massage therapy industry. Our graduates pursue a variety of jobs including private practice, athletic team massage therapist, massage therapist in a hospital, athletic club massage therapist, on-site massage therapist, massage therapist in a hair salon, assistant to physical therapists or chiropractors, and massage therapist on cruise ships. Successful completion of this diploma program qualifies the graduate for massage therapy licensure or registry in both Louisiana and Mississippi and provides eligibility to sit for the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork Examination. Both states require fewer than the total contact hours included in the diploma program. Blue Cliff offers day and night schedules to accommodate almost any lifestyle or work routine. The normal completion time for the day program is nine months, and, for the evening program, fifteen months. Class schedules are provided as an addendum to this catalog (see Greeting letter). The diploma program requires the completion of 52 quarter credits. A Diploma will be awarded upon successful completion of the program.
