Ridley Lowell Business and Technical Institute is celebrating five years of massage training at its Danbury campus and classes are forming now for September. Open enrollment is ongoing for both day and evening courses.
The institute’s graduates are employed at spas, salons, hotels, casinos, gyms and corporate parks; its career service department is also seeing a rise in the demand for trained and licensed graduates at hospitals, physical therapy, chiropractic and acupuncture offices, and cancer and fertility clinics.
Ridley massage students learn traditional Swedish massage, neuromuscular therapies, sports massage, medical massage and spa practices, as well as complimentary modalities such as reflexology, shiatsu and Reiki. The 900-hour massage therapy program combines hands-on and lecture classes with various techniques, origins of therapeutic massage, law and ethics, kinesiology, anatomy, pathology and more.
