Fortis Institute

Preparing for a new start

Today's medical professionals understand the importance of a holistic approach to healthcare. Knowledgeable and professional massage therapists can work alongside these physicians and medical professionals to provide complete care for their patients. The Massage Therapy program at Fortis Institute can prepare students to contribute to this treatment process.

Our approach to education

The Massage Therapy program at Fortis Institute can provide students with complete preparation to begin a massage therapy career. We instruct students in different settings to prepare them for success in the workplace they choose. Students can gain new massage knowledge and experiences in the classroom, the laboratory and in clinical settings.

Our students can experience courses in the following subjects:
• Human sciences
• Massage techniques
• Adjunct bodywork modalities
• Professional standards
• Clinical practices

Through these courses, we hope to instill thorough massage therapy knowledge and a commitment to compassionate patient care. We want to train massage therapists who will inspire trust in their patients or clients. We also realize that you have a busy life outside of your massage therapy education. That's why we offer our students the choice to take their classes during the day or evening.

Your new career

After graduation you can receive a certificate in massage therapy. Your training also prepares you to take the National Certification Examination for Massage Therapy and Bodywork. Gaining certification can show your future employers that you are dedicated to excellence in your career.

In addition to preparing you to work in the medical field, your education from Fortis Institute can prepare you to work in some of these settings:
• Private massage practices
• Fitness and wellness centers
• Health clinics
• Resorts
• Spas
• Pain management centers

At Fortis Institute, we understand that your most important goal is to find a job. After your education is complete, we won't desert you. Employers can contact us when they have a job opening. Or, our job placement office can work directly with you to assist you in your job search.
