100% of Students Achieve Licensing at NY Massage Therapy School

A small class of massage therapy students at a New York massage therapy school who sat for their licensing exam passed recently, beating the state’s average passing rate by 31%.

The seven massage therapy students from Columbia-Greene Community College were awarded with passing grades on their state exams in August.

Since the massage therapy school’s inception in 1999, nearly two-hundred massage therapy students at the school have passed the exam. C-GCC massage therapy school graduates go on to become employees at medical facilities, sports therapy professions, private practices, and other related industries.

Some massage therapy students who graduate from C-GCC earn an Associate in Applied Science over a sixty-seven credit curriculum that incorporates Eastern and Western therapy techniques. Students learn real-world experience in the areas of sprains, muscle tears, tendonitis, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel syndrome. The massage therapy school also incorporates sport injury, soft tissue injury, and hypertension specialized massage therapy techniques into their program.

C-GCCC also provides a certificate program through the massage therapy school that requires fewer specified disciplines in its curriculum. If a student wishes to become certified without the required time to earn an Associate of Applied Science degree, he or she can participate in the shorter, leaner certificate program and take the licensing exam upon completion.

The massage therapy program at Columbia-Greene Community College is intended to prepare those who wish to become a massage therapist for a career in several possible vocations within the discipline of muscle therapies. The certificate program offers foundational technical training for new students and those who have already earned a degree and want a career change.  The degree program offers advanced studies in the areas of sports medicine and applicable medical conditions.

The massage therapy school is located on the college’s main campus at the Technology Center where students have access to a contemporary clinic setting, complete with waiting areas and reception.
