Font Size:

Massage Therapists provide services to help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of clients suffering from emotional or physical injuries, traumas or diseases. Massage Therapists engage in examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, and intervention in an effort to maximize client’s physical, mental and emotional states and contribute to an overall sense of well-being.

Michigan has recently joined 38 other states to require a minimum of 500 hours of training for a license as massage therapist. The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) requires 700 hours.

DIIbelieves that Massage Therapists play an important role in health care and must be trained as such, with a good comprehensive knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, psychology, and a variety of modalities of massage therapies. Students may take the basic program to qualify for licensing and then take additional courses to upgrade their knowledge and NCBTMB certification, which is highly recommended to work as an independent practitioners or for a Physical Therapy Clinic, Hospitals, Outpatient Clinics, Rehabilitation Facilities, Nursing Homes, Hospices, Industrial or Corporate Health Centers, Athletic Facilities, Fitness Centers, Sports Training Facilities, etc.

All programs, including Continuing Education programs are available on-line.Labs & Clinical Training however must be completed at the school. Credits earned can be transferred for training in many other professions e.g. Business, Health Care, Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences or Language & Cultures. New classes start in January, April, July and October.  Accelerated programs, credits for previous studies, scholarships, student loans and easy monthly payment facilities are available. Additional, non-credit courses, can be had for $5.00 per hour, based on availability. Please refer to DII school catalog or contact the Registrar for more information.
