Certified Massage Therapy Program - 850 Hours

  MountainHeart offers one of the most current, comprehensive, and integrated Massage Therapy programs available. This program integrates the leading trends in massage therapy today; clinical neuromuscular therapy, somatic mindbody therapy, and effective Swedish massage. Our 850 Hour CMT program exceeds the current national average in massage therapy education in order to start the therapist at the leading edge of the profession.

All students begin at MountainHeart by completing our 702 CMT Program and then adding hours towards the 850 CMT by completing specific classes. This can be done during the 702 CMT or after as a graduate, or both.

 Located in a sports-oriented mountain town, our CMT program offers may ways for the student interested in sports to align his/her work towards spa and sports massage. All our courses will provide time and experiences to allow the individual student to address their own areas of interest as they integrate their studies during case studies and feedback times. No prerequisites.
