Massage therapy has become more than just a method of helping people alleviate their back, neck, or limb stress. It’s a much sought-after tool used in a wide range of industries in Atlanta and around the world. Today's massage therapy courses prepare students for multiple career paths in the massage therapy industry by introducing numerous massage techniques and tools.
