Soma Now Enrolling for Clinical Massage Therapy Program

Dec 23, 2015 01:50PM

The Soma Institute’s 11- and 15-month Clinical Massage Therapy Diploma Program trains students through clinical applications of massage techniques, including hydrotherapy, sports massage, trigger point therapy and lymphatic drainage. Instructors, comprised of distinguished professionals, provide hands-on training to prepare students for successful careers.

“What makes Soma unique is its commitment to the personal and intellectual growth of its students,” says Joan Hannant, founder and president of Soma. “Soma empowers students to take control of their lives by becoming successful in the career of their dreams. Soma is more than a diploma on the wall; it’s about getting the career you love!”

She points out that chronic disease and illness cause 75 percent of all healthcare costs in the U.S., and that medical professionals are increasingly turning to alternative therapies. Massage therapists are in a position to help people combat these illnesses, reduce stress and promote overall health.
