Editor's Description

Located in the heart of Manhattan, the Swedish Institute has been giving students a comprehensive health education since 1916. The school's massage therapy program is available in five-semester (20-month), six-semester (24-month), and eight-semester (32-month) schedules, with classes held in the mornings, afternoons, evenings, and weekends for total flexibility.

Through a combination of hands-on and classroom learning, students could receive strong foundations in:

  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Pathology
  • Neurology
  • Ethics
  • Business practice

"Swedish Institute has a 103-year history teaching massage," explains alumna Alexes. "There are many other massage schools in New York, but Swedish Institute kept coming up in random conversations. I enrolled at Swedish Institute post-knee replacement and it's been one of the best decisions I've made."
