Choosing the Best Massage Schools in Georgia?
There is a lot of competition for massage students in Georgia and particularly in Atlanta. So how do you find the best school?
The answer is simple...do your research. Find out what the school is like *before* you invest thousands of dollars in your future career. So follow these steps:
1) Read the profiles of each program below
2) If a program sounds interesting, use the link to request more information. Do this for each interesting program.
3) Review the materials that each Georgia massage school sends to you. Try to eliminate any schools that don't meet your criteria (too far, too expensive, not the right techniques, etc.). You should narrow it down to 3 to 5 schools on your short list.
4) Contact the admissions office of each school on your short list and schedule a visit. Make sure you spend at least 30 minutes in the classroom during instruction and 30 minutes talking to students about their experience at the school. I know this is hard, but it is the best source of information and can save you a lot of frustration and heartache.
5) Make your decision. Don't be afraid to trust your instincts or gut feel. Choosing the best Georgia massage school is not easy. Only you can decide what is the best fit for you.

Massage School Selection Tips
Confirm the program of study that each Georgia massage therapy school offers will prepare you for the type of massage you wish to follow. For example, if you are looking to become a sports massage therapist, then choose a program where the core focus is on sports massage. Or you may want to dedicate yourself to the spiritual side of massage therapy such as meditation, tai chi or ayurveda. In this case your course study would be divided between spirituality and the technical aspects of massage therapy.
Research is necessary when deciding which massage therapy colleges will meet and satisfy your needs. Even if a massage therapy college is accredited, accepted and appears to have a quality program, graduating students oft times tell a different story.
