College Profile: Denver School of Massage Therapy - Westminister
The Professional Massage Therapy Program prepares students to become successful practicing bodyworkers in as little as seven months. The Program exceeds standards set by national certification, and by most state and municipal governments for licensing. The Professional Massage Therapy Program teaches the art and science of massage therapy, while also teaching sound business practices which prepare students for success in the marketplace.
In the Professional Massage Therapy Program, students learn light energy work as well as structural bodywork modalities, Eastern as well as Western theory and technique, and how to treat specific pain and dysfunction as well as a holistic approach to health and healing.
Due to the fact that we are training health care practitioners, we include CPR and First Aid training and certification, and Anatomy & Physiology, and Pathology in our Professional Massage Therapy Program curriculum. The UCMT Family of Schools (FOS) not only prepares students to become proficient bodyworkers but also trains students to become successful in the marketplace, either as a sole practitioner, an independent contractor, or an employee.
As part of the Professional Massage Therapy Program curriculum, a student completes a comprehensive Professional Development course. This course includes techniques of enrollment, starting and operating a massage therapy business, presentation, advertising, resumé writing, job interviewing skills, and the integration of sound business practices with a holistic approach to health care. Students participate in the Clinical Internship, which provides them with on-the-job training in preparation for working professionally.
