About the Massage Therapy Program
Lane Community College's massage program is designed to give the student a strong foundation in both the academic and hands-on elements of therapeutic massage. Training in this program prepares students to apply to take the Oregon Board of Massage Therapists licensing exams. Our classes are approved by the Oregon Board of Massage Therapists and by the State of Oregon Department of Community College and Workforce Development, and they are taught by knowledgeable and dedicated health professionals in the field of massage and bodywork.
The Oregon Board of Massage Therapists require documentation of completion of a minimum of 500 classroom hours in order to apply to sit for their licensing exams. Those 500 hours must be comprised of 200 hours of health sciences, which include Anatomy/Physiology/Pathology and Kinesiology, and 300 hours of Massage Theory and Practical Application, Clinical Practice, Business Development, Communication, Ethics, and Sanitation. To sit for the exams, students must be at least 18 years of age.
Lane's current program is 620 contact hours. The cost of tuition, fees, and supplies to complete the program is approximately $6500 (Academic Year 2012-13). Text books total approximately $500.
