Why Morrisville?

"I chose Morrisville because of the program and fantastic facilities. I loved being able to work hands-on within the first week of classes. The small class sizes are also great! I loved how the professors know me and can work with students individually. I felt welcomed once I stepped on campus."

Demand continues to grow for highly skilled, confident massage professionals. Longer and more comprehensive training programs are becoming the standard throughout the country. Morrisville State College offers you the opportunity to begin your future as a massage therapist in one of the nation’s fastest–growing allied health professions.

These professionals provide services through the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the prevention, remediation, and treatment of physical problems and the promotion of personal well–being. Massage therapists work to enhance a person’s sense of well–being, reduce the physical and mental effects of stress, prevent disease and restore health.

Students enrolled in this program will take courses in liberal arts and sciences and mathematics, as well as massage therapy. To become a licensed massage therapist, students must successfully complete the New York State Massage Therapy Exam. Following the successful completion of this exam, Morrisville State College graduates can become independent allied health care professionals in the massage therapy field.

Students will spend a portion of the last semester (MAST 204) in Morrisville State College’s on–campus massage clinic. This hands–on education gives students the experience they will need to enter the massage profession with the confidence necessary to succeed.
