*At Carlson College you will receive an education that begins with a great Swedish massage foundation.  Upon successful completion of this coursework, students then move into the neuromuscular based work that we call "Specifics".  This work is rehabilitative based and educates the students on how to effectively treat chronic or acute muscular dysfunction.  Combining these two modalities is what makes our graduates highly marketable in the healthcare community and why our graduates are in high demand!

*Over the past three years over 93% of our students complete their training and graduate at Carlson College of Massage Therapy! Our graduate initial placement rate in the field of massage is also very impressive at over 98%. ​Your success is our passion!​ Click herefor more details on completion rates, licensing rates and placement rates of our graduates.

*We keep costs as low as possible to keep an education within reach. We want you to know the costs and fees for attending our school. Click here  for complete tuition information.  Our average student debt upon graduation, for those using financial aid, is under $5,250.

*Did you know that Carlson College of Massage Therapy is the ONLY massage college in Iowa that is approved to offer Federal Student Aid that exclusively teaches massage therapy? We are committed to providing a HIGH QUALITY and AFFORDABLE massage therapy education to our students! Don't be fooled...private bank student loans are not the same and many times can be a financial disaster. At CCMT in house, interest free loans are also available! Ask for details on these "in house" interest free loans, including a very low, one time set up fee of only $30!

*Carlson College of Massage Therapy is registered by the Iowa College Student Aid Commission  

*The United States Department of Labor lists massage therapy in their occupational outlook handbook as a career with growth of 23% from now until 2022! that is more than double the average across all occupations!  Click here for more details and salary averages!     

*We are the only school in Iowa Accredited by COMTA (Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation). COMTA is the only accreditation agency that is specific to the profession of massage therapy.  In Iowa, schools do not have to be accredited.  We choose to be accredited for reasons that greatly benefit and protect the student.  PLEASE NOTE: graduating from an accredited school is required in several states such as Arizona!           

*Our student clinic operates in a fashion that simulates a professional massage clinic.  This is a far better opportunity than individual scholarships because ALL of our students benefit from our unique student clinic opportunity! Call or come in for a visit to learn more!

*We love to get involved in the community and provide massages at events....we proudly support community events such as Special Olympics (Cedar Rapids), Run for the Schools (Iowa City), Especially for You Race Against Breast Cancer, Animal Welfare Foundation (Jones County, Iowa) and other local events.
