CDI College stands out among massage therapy schools for our dedication to our students' success. Our Massage Therapy diploma program prepares students to become valued, well-paid members of the healthcare industry in private clinics, medical and rehabilitation centres, hospitals, spas, fitness facilities, or as self-employed massage therapists.
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. Graduates are encouraged to register with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and are also eligible to sit the CMTO's certification examination in both components – Multiple Choice Questionnaire (MCQ) and Objectively Structured Clinical Evaluation (OSCE) – to obtain their registration certification and become a registered massage therapist.
