600-hr Massage Therapist Program

SFSM is fully open with classes in session now – Our next massage program begins October 20th!

Our curriculum supports motivated, caring people who aspire to help those around them through the power of therapeutic massage. Our students are offered the chance to learn in a classroom as well as in a student clinic so that they can practice and perfect the skills they have learned here before they enter the workforce. This way of learning excels in promoting a confident and knowledgeable massage therapist, while at the same time creating a comfortable and supportive learning experience.

Completion of the Massage Therapist Program at SFSM enables you to become state certified through the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) and also provides you with the core hours needed to become nationally certified through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).
