Capri College: Massage And More In Davenport, Iowa

Here's a little lesson on supply and demand: the more stressful people's lives get, the more demand there is for stress relief!

The Capri College Massage Therapy program teaches you the most effective methods in stress management and pain relief through massage. The foundation of the program also promotes the psychological and physical health benefits of massage therapy.

From Swedish Massage to Eastern Shiatsu, you will learn a wide array of massage techniques that go above and beyond the basic shoulder rub technique. The deep tissue manipulations and touch therapies taught in the program give you a sound education in the healing art of Massage Therapy.

Obviously you will get plenty of hands-on training, but you will also study the theory behind the therapeutic benefits of massage therapy. Your in-depth education will cover the life sciences: human anatomy, physiology, pathology, and kinesiology. The Massage Therapy program at Capri College is a rigorous academic experience with intense hands-on training in a soothing, practical environment.
