Posted Thursday, Oct 17, 2013 by Allen B. Ury
If you’re going to learn a trade, learn from someone who’s been there. That’s the philosophy behind the Massage Therapy training program at Everest University in Largo, Fla. The nine-month program is taught by industry professionals with years of experience working in massage studios, day spas, resorts, clinics and similar venues. They can not only teach the Everest program with confidence, but also enlighten their students about the opportunities, challenges and demands they are likely to face once they’re out in the “real world.”
Everest is one of the largest trainers of massage therapists in the United States. One of the company’s corporate partners is Massage Envy, currently the largest chain of franchised massage studios in America.

These and other corporate partners help direct Everest’s Massage Therapy program so its curriculum remains current and relevant to employer needs.
