Massage Therapy College Teams Up With Massage Clinic

A massage therapy school in Santa Ana, CA recently announced a new strategic partnership with a large massage clinic chain.

Earlier in December, representatives of Everest College said in a press release that it has joined forces with Elements Therapeutic Massage Inc.

Elements Therapeutic Massage has over eighty locations around the country and plans to assist the graduates of the massage therapy college in finding placement for employment.

These types of coalitions are becoming more common in the massage therapy industry. As more people seek the stress-busting assistance of a licensed massage therapist, clinics are forced to hire more qualified employees. This is a win-win situation for the clinic and the massage therapy college.

As part of their joint-effort to benefit the school and the clinic franchise, Elements will notify the school of any new openings within their company on an on-going basis. The clinic franchise will also participate in course development at the massage therapy school, ensuring that students are learning the most up-to-date, real-world applicable skills they will need after graduation.

Michelle Merhib, the founder of Elements Therapeutic Massage said the company’s top priority is helping their franchise create long-lasting relationships. “..By partnering with Everest, we are able to tap into a pool of skilled massage therapists. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship,” Merhib said in the release.

Wendy Cullen is the Vice President of Corinthian Colleges, the parent college to the massage therapy school. Cullen says that the partnership is an excellent chance for students to start out in their career with a successful and rapidly expanding clinic. Students at the college learn basic and advanced techniques for all types of massage therapy applications including deep-tissue, pre-natal, and sports massage.

“This partnership demonstrates the value our programs bring to employers and commitment to helping place Everest graduates in their chosen fields of study,” Cullen says.
