Massage therapy is a health care and wellness profession involving the manipulation of muscles and other soft tissues to enhance health and healing. Massage therapists work in a variety of environments from spas to hospitals to their own small business. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the profession should see significant growth over the next decade.

The 645-hour massage therapy program at AACC offers either a certificate or an associate degree. Our part-time program offers both day and evening classes and prepares students to take the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam (MBLEx). AACC program graduates enjoy one of the highest first-time pass rates on the licensing exam.
