How does it work?

Massage Table

We've partnered with Academy of Health in Milwaukee. The academic portion is conducted primarily online (anatomy & physiology, etc) and via optional Zoom meetings. The HANDS -ON portion is taught by the licensed and experienced therapists at Door County Massage. We meet 4 hours a week for about 10 months. All your clinical hours can be gained in-house under our supervision. Once you pass the MBLEX exam, you'll become a licensed massage therapist.

Dr. Jeffrey Montoya PHD, a therapist and instructor from Milwaukee, WI recognized the demand for massage therapists was not being met. A lot of people interested in the field are deterred by the hurdle of finding the time to attend a massage school. He has created a curriculum to bridge that gap. He has empowered other experienced therapists and larger spas to bring training in-house with a flexible and convenient training schedule. It's a self-paced program that prepares you to take the National Exam (MBLEX), coupled with hands-on training to qualify you for a License in the state of Wisconsin.
