Level 1 Massage Therapy Program

Massage therapy is the art and science of manipulating the soft tissues of the body to decrease pain and stress, increase flexibility, and improve sleep. It has profound effects on the body, mind, and spirit.

Our 7-month program will prepare you to work safely and effectively in a variety of settings, and even give you the ability to start your own business as an independent massage therapist.

Our experienced instructors will teach you a variety of effective techniques, such as Swedish, myofascial, deep tissue, spa, sports, PNF, craniosacral, trigger point, and prenatal massage.

Our focus is teaching you the proper body mechanics and self-care to allow you to have a long and prosperous career. Our small class sizes ensure that you get individual attention and guidance.

Graduate Review

Aaron is a great massage school instructor.  I have had a lot of education in the past, all the way through getting my BS at Chico State University, and Aaron has been one of the best instructors I’ve experienced.  He is passionate about what he teaches and expresses the material we need to learn in a relatable, easy to understand format.  He is patient with the students and gives us the freedom to express ourselves in the classroom.  I highly recommend Aaron and Chico Massage School.”

Graduate Review

I have learned so much during my time at Chico Massage School. I came into this program with absolutely no knowledge of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, or massage in general. The program was set up in a way, and the instruction was given in a way, that allowed space for truly understanding the topics at hand. Although it is fast-paced, especially in regards to the science associated with massage, it is laid out in a very organized manner where one could grasp things quickly and make connections seamlessly.

Aaron, the instructor, really knows what he is talking about and explains the material in an easily understood and fluid manner. Candi, the other instructor and owner, is a total inspiration in every way and has so much to offer students (and the world). The pair of them encompass every aspect that makes a great learning experience – regimented, open-minded, knowledgeable, understanding, experienced, etc.,”

Graduate Review

Through the program, I learned a lot of different modalities and self-care tips to take care of myself throughout this career. The staff at Chico Massage School really wants to help you be successful after you graduate. Therefore, the program is packed with learning experiences from the clinic hours that are open to the public and booked by the staff to the chair massage event at a craft fair that was held by the school. The school also connected us to events in the community, such as Chico High’s Sober Grad Night and Marcus Brown’s Ski Clinic, where we got to massage for extra practice and connect with the community. By the end of the program, I felt truly prepared for a career in massage and ready to start my own business.”

Graduate Review

As a former student at Chico Massage School, I loved this program. I really only have good things to say about my experience here. Aaron and Candi are very well-versed in what they teach and are very supportive and passionate about their students’ success.

Though it is a small school, it allows for a lower student-to-teacher ratio and opportunities for one-on-one time with the teachers. I highly recommend this program and I can’t wait to continue my education here!”
