About the Massage Therapy Program

Lane Community College's Massage Therapy Program is designed to give our students a strong foundation in both the academic and hands-on elements of therapeutic massage. Our courses are designed to prepare students to take the licensing exams required by the Oregon Board of Massage Therapists, and our curriculum is approved by the Board and by the State of Oregon Department of Community College and Workforce Development. Instructors in the program have dedicated themselves to the healing arts, and bring years of experience from the field of massage and bodywork into the classroom.

The Oregon Board of Massage Therapists requires proof of completion of a minimum of 500 classroom hours to be considered for licensure. 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. Applicants for licensure 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 $6800 (Academic Year 2014-15). Textbooks total around $400.
