As a Chicago area massage therapy school, Universal Spa Training Academy (USTA) believes 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.

Understanding this power from within can produce the most effective, profitable and well-rounded therapists. It is also what sets USTA apart from other massage schools.

The Massage Therapy Program at USTA is divided into 3 core areas: MIND – BODY – SPIRIT

NOTE: The State of Illinois requires a minimum of 600 hours of training to become a licensed massage therapist. USTA chooses to add 50 hours to this minimum State requirement to provide students with additional tools that we feel are needed prior to graduation. Within USTA’s 650 hour nationally accredited massage therapy curriculum, we take students through human body systems with a balanced focus on muscular structure and function, multiple massage modalities as well as career planning, client retention and preparation to sit and pass the MBLEx Exam.
