Bay College is pleased to announce the launch of their Massage Therapy Program starting May 17, 2022 in Escanaba, MI. Rebecca (Becca) Bartholomew, formerly of the Marquette School of Massage Therapy, will be the program instructor and will provide 625-hours of instruction which will prepare students for the nationally recognized Massage and Bodywork Licensure Examination (MBLEX).  Bay College has been approved as an Assigned School through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB), and this non-credit program will run through December 2022.

Bay College requires all applicants to be at least eighteen years of age, pass a background check, hold a high school diploma or equivalent and be physically capable of giving and receiving massages.  Interested individuals are encouraged to apply early due to a maximum capacity of 10 students.  A $50 application fee will reserve your seat, but registration and the full payment of $8,999 is due by May 12, 2022.  Financial aid is not applicable for this program; however, funding opportunities may be available through Michigan Works or your financial institution.

Massage Therapy is in high demand with great income potential, flexible hours, a variety of potential work settings, opportunities for growth, and work that allows you to improve that physical and mental well-being of others.
