- You will be learning basic massage skills and how massage works. You
will be learning about the effects of massage on the body. Swedish Massage is what is taught in basic massage school classes.
Ethics for Massage Students- Ethics is the heart and soul of a massage career. Ethics is understanding your own personal values and being able to work in integrity with them through many challenges of working with clients, doctors and others.

Business and Marketing. You
will also be learning how to start a massage business and get a basic
overview of how to find a job. Massage Schools are not able to provide
thorough enough training in how to start and run a massage business.
They will just be teaching you how to do massage for the most part.
