Massage Therapy students will explore human anatomy and physiology, then they will learn pathology, as well as the allied modalities such as reflexology, sports massage, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy and hot stone massage. In addition, our faculty will prepare Massage Therapy students, to take and pass the MBLEX exam for licensing.

Our Massage Therapy program prepares graduates to meet the requirements for entry-level employment as a licensed massage therapist in their own private practice or in the medical offices of physicians, chiropractors and/or physical therapists. Successful massage graduates may also find employment in medi-spas, health spas, hospitals, massage clinics as well as cruise lines.

I searched for six months looking for a school where I could learn cosmetology and fully learn esthetics in the same place. When I finally found International Academy, I thought it was too good to be true. The Administration was so caring and attentive to anything that I needed to make my transition to Daytona and into school as easy as possible. Also, the facilities at International Academy are amazing! The equipment and products that we trained with are of the highest quality. The equipment in the school spa is more up-to-date and high-tech than many of the professional spas out there today. I feel like International Academy has thoroughly prepared me to be one of the best in the beauty industry!

I am now the proud owner of Serenity Salon & Spa an 1800 square foot facility in St. Augustine, Florida. I really owe all of this to International Academy for giving me the education that allowed me to make this dream come true.

Before I came to International Academy I was working a job that was both physically and mentally draining. I came to International Academy and fell in love with not only the facilities but also the staff. The teachers and administrators really care about their students and want them to succeed. The difference I found in this school vs. others was that at International we were like a family. I completed both the massage and skin programs and was prepared to go out into the real world. I graduated and obtained a great job in the same week. I chalk that up to the skills I learned at International Academy.
