Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
Back to school means getting an associate degree in occupational studies. WellSpring School of Allied Health announced this month a new degree for students, combining massage therapy and personal training into one associate degree.
Don Farquharson, CEO of WellSpring Resources, Inc., said, “WellSpring School of Allied Health has a proud history of helping individuals pursue careers in health and wellness. The new degree program will enable our graduates to provide even more value to their existing clients while improving their marketability and diversifying their skills.”
Massage graduates can obtain the degree by taking WellSpring’s personal training program. In the process, students can pick up a NASM certification as a personal trainer (CPT) and a specialization in corrective exercise (CES). Classes cover topics such as exercises science, program design, training special populations and more.
Graduates from the personal training program can obtain this degree by taking the massage therapy program, which includes the national certification exam in massage therapy. Members of this program will take classes such as Basic Swedish Massage, Sports Massage and Kinetic Anatomy.
By taking the new combined program, WellSpring graduates will save on tuition when compared to taking the programs separately, relieving some of that back-to-school stress, and Financial aid is available to all who qualify.
