Academics

While some students might aspire to attend a school where time in the classroom means reading and writing, others are more interested in learning a skill that can truly provide immediate relief from stress and pain. For those students in Jacksonville, Florida, there is no better school to choose than the Keiser Career College in Jacksonville (formerly known as the School of Neuromuscular Massage – Jacksonville).

A fully accredited and hands-on institute that spends just as much time educating students in the classroom as it does offering them opportunities to try their new skills, Keiser Career College – Jacksonville is one of the foremost schools for learning the art of neuromuscular massage in the greater Jacksonville area. Founded in 1992, the school is fully licensed by the Florida Commission on Independent Education and offers professional training for those interested in pursuing a career as a professional massage therapist.

Students can choose between day classes or night classes, and there are numerous student clinics, where students are able to experience the atmosphere of a professional massage while under the watchful gaze of their instructors, who can assist them in learning how to better provide a professional and comfortable massage for customers. This is also a great resource for the community, as the rates for a student massage are considerably lower than what you will pay to receive the same massage for the same student once they begin their professional career.

Instruction at Keiser Career College – Jacksonville is split into classroom time, where scientific and health-related lessons on the human body, stress and how it is managed physically, and health and safety of giving massages are all taught. In the laboratory, students receive hours and hours of hands-on training, learning how to properly administer a number of different massages. Courses start out with a focus towards general information, before moving into more complicated and specialized forms of massage. Upon graduation, students will have learned the basics of neuromuscular massage and started on a path towards specializing in a more specific form of healing therapy, too.
