Massage Therapy

Our wellness instructors value the importance of understanding all types of salon & spa care. This includes the healing art of massage therapy. As a result, our massage course prepares students to take the state licensing exam and go on to a career in massage therapy.

Massage therapy is about learning how to create wellness through the power of touch. Our program balances the study of anatomy, physiology, pathology, aromatherapy, spa treatments, and body movement techniques to achieve inner wellness that emanates outward. In addition, with our use of the Aveda body/skincare lines, students can become well versed in the connectedness of the mind and body especially when selecting each product for a guest’s massage.

About Massage Therapy Program

In short, Aveda Massage Therapy School produces career-ready students with intricate knowledge in the modalities and techniques of this flourishing industry. To do so, we believe in a hands-on approach to instruction. With that in mind, students will learn to perform body services and massages such as deep tissue and Swedish massage. Subsequently, students will also generate a rich knowledge of Aveda products and superb customer service techniques. Moreover, this program prepares students to advise clients on how to care for their hair at home.

Please stay tuned as these dates will be updated soon for classes beginning in 2021. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding any upcoming starting dates. In addition, sign up for a virtual tour to learn more about our programs and campus.

Due to COVID-19, our classes have moved to a hybrid style where our theory is taught online and our practicals are taught face-to-face. For Massage School courses, it will be strictly face-to-face. Thus, the majority of our tours will be handled virtually to protect future students, and our current students and staff. To illustrate how those tours work, please take a look at “What’s a Virtual Tour Like at Aveda Institute Maryland.” Likewise, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us for questions.
