Overview

Acupuncture and Massage College says

Thank you for your inquiry to our massage and acupuncture school. We are one of the oldest schools of alternative medicine in the State of Florida and we offer two distinct and different courses of study: A seven-month massage therapy school and a Master of Oriental Medicine school with a degree. The Acupuncture & Massage College is accredited by ACCST and by ACAOM, thus giving our students the ability to apply for financial aid. Eight-Month Massage Therapy Program

The Acupuncture & Massage College?s eight and one-half month Massage Therapy program is an extremely diversified course of study. Ever since our inception, we have sought to provide our students with a specialized and comprehensive program and with Instructors who are experienced and qualified in their field. Our 720-hour Massage Therapy core curriculum meets state and national standards. Over the years we have maintained a specialty in Oriental bodywork, with comprehensive training in Japanese Shiatsu. Spas and health clubs clearly pay more for practitioners of Shiatsu massage, thereby giving our graduates an advantage in the market place. Oriental Medicine Program

Our Master of Oriental Medicine degree is a four-year, nationally accredited acupuncture college program, designed to be completed in just 36 months. At the Acupuncture & Massage College, our faculty is handpicked, specialized in their field and dedicated to their students. Our classes are small to moderately sized, giving students the opportunity for greater class participation and faculty interaction. Graduates of the Acupuncture & Massage College are eligible to sit for their National Acupuncture, Chinese Herb and Oriental Medicine exams.

In addition to classes in traditional Chinese medicine, students are trained in Oriental bodywork, qigong and Oriental food therapy. We offer an extensive program in Western physical examination and supervised clinical practice. Our intention is to familiarize our students with both Eastern and Western medicine so that they will be able to better communicate with their patients and the medical community. This ability encourages respect and referrals from other health professionals. Financial Aid

Our students can apply for federal financial aid in the form of Pell Grants, the Ricky Williams Scholarship and Federal Student Loans. Make an appointment with our Financial Aid Director to determine how much money you can qualify for. In addition, students are eligible for student visas and VA benefits

In both our Massage Therapy and Oriental Medicine programs, we pride ourselves in having high student satisfaction and high pass rates on our National licensing exams. We encourage you to call our Admissions Director or stop by and visit our school.
