What is Medical Massage?

 

More than a few massage therapists claim to perform Medical Massage. By definition, medical massage is a therapeutic massage prescribed by a physician and performed following the directives of that physician. Medical massage does not refer to any specific treatment method and can include various massage protocols and modalities. Medical massage is outcome-oriented instead of time-oriented. That means that instead of booking a client for a 50 or 60 or 90 minute session and working on their entire body with a little more emphasis on the back, neck or other affected area and charging your standard rate for a relaxation massage, the medical massage therapist will treat only the part of the body that the physician prescribes treatment for and can bill according to a usual customary rate schedule, adjusted by the region of the country that you live in. This will allow many therapists to more than double the amount they earn per session. 

 

A medical massage practice can produce an income commensurate with what your services are worth. Because insurance plans allow for maximum reimbursement for your services, medical massage practitioners are compensated on par with other medical professionals, such as chiropractors and physical therapists. Medical massage practitioners are not confined to working in doctor's offices, although opportunities abound in this area. Our Medical Massage Practitioner Program will give you the knowledge and confidence to work together with physicians in your own independent practice. 

 

Many massage therapists have discovered that by becoming a Medical Massage Practitioner, that they can build the type of practice they have long dreamed about. Since all of their patients are referred by doctors, the therapist does not have to do much in the way of marketing. Referrals from just one doctor can easily fill the practice of a sole-practitioner and can set you on your way to opening an independent clinical practice. Without the burden of searching for new clients to get on the table, massage therapists are free to concentrate on what they know best: getting people well.  Because many health insurance plans cover physician prescribed massage, your practice extends far beyond just the wealthy individuals that largely support a cash based practice. You can help many more people

Program Details


Program Structure

In its entirety, the Medical Massage Practitioner Program is a 40-hour eductional program that is made up of two levels: the Professional Level and the Masters Level. Each level consistes of three classes totaling 20 hours of education. In our "weekend" format, each level has 2 classes that are taught on a Saturday (12 hours) and one class (8 hours) that is taught on a Sunday. The levels are taught in hotel conference rooms over weekends approximately 3-5 weeks apart.

 


We also have an "immersion program" where both levels are taught consecutively in one single week. You can take the entire program in a single week at these locations: our Las Vegas Success School and on an Education Vacation in Costa Rica. You may also be interested in taking some of all portions of this program on on a Seminar at Sea.  Class schedules vary by cruise.

 

MMP Courses

The Professional Level consists of three classes: Insurance Billing (4 hours), Day of the Neck (8 hours) and Day of the Back (8 hours).  In our weekend format, the Insurance Billing class and the Day of the Neck class are held on a Saturday and the Day of the Back class is held on a Sunday.
 


 

The Masters Level also consists of three classes: Posture & Pain (4 hours), Upper Extremity (8 hours) and Lower Extremity (8 hours). In our weekend format the Posture & Pain class and Upper Extremity class are held on a Saturday and the Lower Extremity class is held on a Sunday.

 

Tuition for the Weekend Program

The tuition for the weekend program is $195 for each day of education. The classes may be taken individually and CE hours are issued for each class taken, but the full certification is granted only if all six classes are completed (Exception: see "Insurance Billing Option" below).
