Offering unique opportunities, this school is perfect for individuals who want to change career paths that focus on wellness and alternative techniques. In some cases, depending upon credit transfers, within 16 months one can become a fully licensed massage therapist upon passing the state exam.
On the eastern entrance of the school you will find New York College Teaching Clinic where more than 30,000 patients walk through the door annually to receive affordable varieties of health options, performed by student interns, such as massage treatments, acupuncture, reflexology, and herbal consultations all supervised by faculty professionals.
