Congratulations on your decision to pursue a career as a licensed Massage Therapist. Your choice of JSG School of Massage Therapy for Qualified Students includes an extra commitment beyond learning Swedish Massage. Our instructors consist of all LMT’s who have the qualifications and experience to instruct and train you to achieve your goal of massage therapy.
The JSG School of Massage Therapy comprehensive Curriculum offers qualified students a wide variety of study and practical experiences that are unique to a curriculum in New Jersey.
Students have an opportunity to offer community service experience to senior day care facilities, hospitals, fitness centers, salons, and more. It is the school’s intention with today’s professional and health needs to be equipped with traditional and contemporary modalities as well as a thorough understanding of human anatomy and kinesiology.
At JSG students are challenged personally to build and develop a sense of professionalism in a unique setting of being small and personal.
JSG School of Massage provides a comprehensive education to prepare its students for a successful career in massage therapy. Our program consists of a mix of theory and practice, delivered by an experienced team of licensed massage therapists. The coursework includes 32 PowerPoint topics, quizzes, coloring books, and related terms that cover the necessary information required to obtain a New Jersey license.
At the end of the semester, students have the opportunity to practice their massage techniques on members of the public in our student clinic. For each session conducted in the clinic, clients are asked to make a $25 donation to their local animal shelter. This not only gives our students hands-on experience in real-life settings but also helps them contribute positively toward society at large.
To ensure that our students are fully compliant with state licensing requirements, we require 100 hours of hands-on practice in our clinic as part of the coursework. Alongside this practical element, JSG also provides instructional videos which accompany class demonstrations supervised by licensed massage therapists (LMTs). Furthermore, all NJ State bondings and proliability insurance requirements are taken care of by us too.
We understand that Financial aid can be hard to come by when starting out on your new career path so at JSG we provide free student consultation and job placement services as well as advice on how to volunteer and gain additional experience through home practicum activities. In addition, we offer ABMP review classes to help students pass their MBLEx exams with flying colours!
