The Institute of Therapeutic Massage is proud to introduce to you, our newest graduating class. They completed our 900 hour massage program, earned certifications in numerous Career Enhancement Classes and 6 of them passed the Ohio state licensing examination, MBLEx before graduation!
IOTM's 900 hour program meets and exceeds the State of Ohio's (as well as most other states) requirements for massage licensure. Our massage program consists of:
- Medical Terminology- 48 hours
- Anatomy & Physiology- 192 hours
- Muscles- 96 hours
- Massage Theory & Practical- 224 hours
- Pathology & Pharmacology- 48 hours
- Advanced Therapeutic Techniques- 96 hours
- Ethics- 24 hours
- Study Skills- 24 hours
- Business- 48 hours
- Career Enhancements- 100 hours
Our Career Enhancement Classes do just that, enhance your future massage career. Career Enhancements are advanced techniques such as Sports Massage, Cancer Massage, Hot Stone Body Massage and many others. As an IOTM student, you will receive 100 hours of Career Enhancement Classes as part of your program and we are the only area massage school to offer this. As a result, you will be able to tell a future potential employer that you are certified in Pregnancy Massage and it may give you a competitive advantage over another candidate who does not have certifications.
The six students who passed MBLEx before graduation achieved this because they were prepared. We have a campus computer lab with a program installed on the computers that asks similar questions that may be on the MBLEx. Once you score at a certain level, an instructor will let you know you are ready to take MBLEx. IOTM has a 100% MBLEx passage rate and we believe this is one of the reasons why.
