The Massage Therapy program is designed to prepare the individual in all areas of massage. Massage therapy is physically demanding work. Students need to have good general health and the strength, stamina, and flexibility necessary to carry out assignments. Massage techniques and bodywork, anatomy, professionalism with clients, and business practices are included in the curriculum. In addition to tuition and fees, costs for the Massage Therapy program include: workbooks, massage supplies, table, clinical attire and the board exam/license fee.

Housed at the Lake Land College Kluthe Center for Higher Education and Technology in Effingham, Illinois, classes begin each fall semester and run for 4 consecutive semesters.
