Medical Massage Therapy
Enroll in our hands-on, innovative class for advanced students. Our qualified and experienced instructors serve as facilitators of the learning process. Instead of simply lecturing, they guide students by helping make sense of course materials, encouraging them to ask questions and explore solutions, and promoting the use of resources outside of the classroom.
Our 2,300-hour program is completed over two-years to become a professional Massage Therapist.
Axiom Career College complies with the Canadian standard of Inter‐Jurisdictional Practice Competencies and Performance Indicators for Massage Therapists at Entry‐to‐Practice.

You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers
Is a Two-Week Program Sufficient to Become a Massage Therapist?
Do not be deceived by two-week programs that claim to give you quality education. Our 2,300- hour program allows you to have over 1,200 hours of hands-on learning, practice and experience that cannot be replicated in two weeks. Your academic knowledge, hours of practicum and studying will prepare you to be a competent Massage Therapist.
For public safety and industry standards the successful completion of a 2,200 hour program is the minimum requirement to obtain malpractice insurance (insurance for a Massage Therapist to practice) and coordination of benefits (patient reimbursement by benefits/insurance companies).
Massage Therapy is not yet legislated in Saskatchewan, meaning that there is no College of Massage Therapy, as there is a College of Physicians and Surgeons or a College of Nursing. Once Legislation has passed, all practicing professionals will have to have successfully completed a 2,200-hour diploma to be eligible to write the entry to practice exam.
What Makes Our Massage Program Different?
Medical Massage Therapy at Axiom Career College is an updated program; we keep up with industry developments and standards. We also comply with Inter-Jurisdictional Practice Competencies, which is the educational standard for the industry.
Majority of Massage Therapists are self-employed as contractors or running their own business. Our program is different because we teach you how to be self-employed, to be confident in your practice and business. The business elements incorporated into the massage program are useful and relevant to what you will encounter as a professional. You will have confidence when you manage money, taxes, financials, accounting and business transactions. Our business preparation is invaluable and unmatched by any other program.
Additionally, our classes are all encompassing and highly involved. We focus on your ability and appeal to all types of learning for the best outcomes. We do our best to use technology to aid in learning, without sacrificing the integrity of the material or program. Support from your instructors will help you navigate the challenging material to reach your optimal potential and develop into the best professional you can be. We want to increase the quality of massage graduates to raise the standards of the industry. You are the next leaders!
