Our 650 hour State licensed massage therapy school curriculum will take students through human body systems with a balanced focus on muscular structure and function, anatomy, multiple massage modalities as well as career planning, client retention and preparation to sit and pass the MBLEx Exam.

As a Chicago area massage therapy school, we believe that true effectiveness and profitability for a massage therapist begins with self discovery, personal growth and understanding the power of touch between therapist and client.

“Students learn proper medical terminology that is actively reinforced in classroom experiences.”

Beginning classes focus on communication and self awareness. These essential skills are developed through focused activities and exercises, which are the foundation of customer service and a therapists ability to retain clientele and an income.

Understanding this power from within ensures the most effective, well rounded, therapists upon graduation and it is what sets us apart from other massage schools.

Our massage therapy school educators bring years of practical experience in bodywork as well as a holistic and hands-on approach to massage. Universal Spa Training Academy’s nationally accredited massage therapy school is designed to ensure successful completion of the national licensing exam (MBLEx). Chicago land students should expect a rich and diverse learning environment with plenty of hands-on training.

“Tuition includes the initial massage therapy licensing fee for Illinois”

The State of Illinois requires a minimum of 600 hours of training to become licensed. At USTA, our 9 month day or 11 month evening massage therapy programs offer a balanced study of anatomy, physiology, pathology, kinesiology, Eastern energies, Western techniques and professional development. Curriculum includes Trigger point therapy, Neuromuscular techniques, Polarity Therapy, Swedish massage techniques, and Pregnancy massage.

“Included in the 650 hour program is a FREE massage table for each student.”

Our Chicagoland massage therapy school education also provides its students with the business guidance needed to help build a successful private massage therapy practice.
