"In my business, I've been able to interact with many massage therapists who come from other schools. I think National's caliber is higher. I recommend that people choose National for its anatomy training, the hands-on experience they'll have, the pathology classes, as well as National's business program."-Michael Bouvier
"National University definitely prepared me for the real world of massage therapy. The clinic experience at National is very much what it's like in a real clinic."-Caitlin Spencer

Massage therapy is a $12.1 billion per year industry, according to the American Massage Therapy Association Industry Fact Sheet.
The massage therapy field is projected to be one of the fastest-growing job segments in the next decade. In fact, The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the field is expected to grow by 22% before 2024—more than triple the overall job growth of 7%.
For more than 110 years, NUHS has been the leader in integrative teaching, training and treatment. What makes us different?

We also train you for a variety of job settings in massage therapy, including: spa, corporate, hospital, sports venues, your own business and more.
Gain business skills like learning how to build a successful client base for your own massage therapy practice, keep accounting and tax records, and familiarize yourself with state and local laws through our business management courses.

Very few massage schools in the country offer the advantage of learning from human cadavers. At NUHS, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of human anatomy through instruction in a graduate-level medical cadaver lab.
You will actually see the musculature, ligaments and organ systems—not just read about them in books.
Because we are also a graduate medical school, our massage therapy students will learn from professors, instructors and physicians with outstanding credentials. Our beautiful 35-acre campus includes a massage therapy suite housed in our on-site integrative medical clinic.
Here, you'll intern under seasoned clinicians, giving you real world interaction with patients and the public. This is just one of the ways your training will have a strong medical and health focus.
National University offers its graduate-level, science-focused facilities to all students, including students in the massage therapy program. You'll benefit in a variety of ways—from studying cadavers in our gross anatomy laboratory, working on The Anatomage Table, to working interactively with students and practitioners from other health care professions in our on-campus integrated whole health center.
We believe in bringing together professionals from a broad range of medical specialties for the benefit of patients and the healthcare industry as a whole. By earning a massage therapy certificate or associate degree from NUHS, you’ll be ideally suited for the growing number of integrative practice opportunities.
