To touch another human is one of the highest honors one can receive and Butler's massage therapy program can give you the kind of "hands on training" you need to truly touch the lives of others.
Massage therapy is an important and rewarding health care profession. Massage therapists may work either as salaried / commissioned employees or as independent practitioners. A massage therapist may charge $25 to $60 an hour (according to the Kansas Wage Survey, 2010 Edition, the median wage was $23.26/hr.) and may work in a variety of interesting settings.
Just a few examples of the locations we work in are:
But you can't take advantage of any of these exciting opportunities without the proper training and that's where we come in. Our team of certified educators in Butler Community College's massage therapy program will shape you into a professional by training you in therapeutic massage techniques backed up with biological science courses, clinical experiences, and business/ethical development.
