These are pre-entrance examinations for RLC's Therapeutic Massage program. Therapeutic Massage prepares individuals for careers in massage and bodywork. Practitioners use their hands to apply various scientific principles to the muscles and soft tissue. Therapeutic Massage is used to facilitate relaxation, health improvement and pain relief. The program provides education in the human body, clinical experience, and business, professional and personal development. Swedish Massage techniques are used as the foundation of practice. Graduates may work in a variety of settings, including medical facilities, beauty salons, private practice and sports clinics.
An Illinois State Police background check is required. Upon successful completion, students are qualified to take the national certification exam. The program consists of 26 credit hours, and classes are held at the Rend Lake College MarketPlace in Mt. Vernon.
