Massage therapists are important members of the interprofessional health care team, working with a broad range of patients. Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health, through engagement not only of the musculoskeletal system but also of the neurological and circulatory systems.

The Massage Therapy program is geared towards those individuals with an interest in health care and helping people, an aptitude for science and problem solving, and direct hands-on application of skills.

This three-year advanced diploma is designed to meet the educational requirements for certification, through examination, as a Registered Massage Therapist by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. This fully-integrated program covers the basic biological sciences such as anatomy and physiology, massage therapy specific knowledge and skills, and clinical reasoning and therapeutic decision making. Prior to entering practice, graduates must pass the certification examinations of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.

I was trained in India and began my nursing career in Canada as a PSW. The program at Conestoga for internationally educated nurses helped me get my license as registered nurse in Canada before I moved on to get my master's in nursing. I then trained to be a nurse practitioner.

The program covers the basics of nursing in Canada and advanced subjects like cardiac nursing and how to interpret ECGs, which normally is not offered as a separate course.

The teachers are great and you get to learn from people with different backgrounds in differ clinical areas. Canadian nurses have a bigger scope than nurses in any other country. Learning about these areas plus getting a clinical placement was a huge advantage. The program also supported me as a I managed family and getting used to living in Canada.
