The cost of a massage program depends a great deal on the number of hours offered, the location of the school, and what is being offered at the school. Obviously a 500-hour school will be cheaper, on average, than a 1000 hour school. In 2013, the average tuition cost (with no taxes, fees, or supplies) of massage therapy programs in the USA was $13.5K. Our program provides many more hours than the national average (642) and offers it very near this average price , even though we’re located in a highly envied location.
Below is a comparison of our program’s hours and tuition with that of prominent programs that specialize in structural bodywork (2015 prices listed where not indicated).
