This diploma program teaches fundamental massage skills such as hydrotherapy, palpation, remedial exercise, and patient assessment. Students learn different types of massage treatments, along with medical topics including anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and pathology. Courses also cover topics such as industry ethics and professional communications.

A clinical placement, under the supervision of a registered massage therapist, gives students the chance to put their education to use in a real-world setting.
