International Massage and Spa Academy

International Massage and Spa Academy, approved by Illinois Board of Higher Education
St. Charles, IL - July 2017 - Founded in 2009 and recently renamed International Massage and Spa Academy by Lori Vargas. International Massage and Spa Academy offers an integrated and comprehensive Massage Therapy Certification Program, giving students the tools to become excellent massage therapists. This 6-month program, 50% shorter than most massage therapy programs and with a 99% passing rate, compared with the national MBLEx pass rate of 66%, their program is shown to be efficient and effective. A 100% job placement rate also provides a quick start to your career as a massage therapist once you receive your license. Priced at $6,999 with flexible payment plans, the tuition is one of the lowest in the area while providing the best results.
Smaller class sizes and knowledgeable faculty members with industry experience allow International Massage and Spa Academy to provide each student individual attention that promotes fast growth and a deeper understanding. International Massage and Spa Academy is focused on providing the best education and training in contemporary practices. The program recently added 40 hours of hands-on training focused on sports massages. This focus provides a competitive advantage for graduating massage therapists by allowing them to gain experience in Gait Analysis, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release Therapy, Cupping Therapy, Gua Sha Scraping, Athletic Stretching, and Kinesiology Taping.
International Massage and Spa Academy also offers a 3-month Nail Technology Certification Program with tuition as low as $2,999. Job demand is high for both nail technicians and massage therapists, which makes pursuing a certification a great career decision. Delivering exceptional education and attainable careers has been the mission of Lori Vargas, founder of International Massage and Spa Academy and owner of Spa Vargas Wellness. Vargas stated "it is rewarding working closely with students and watching their skills develop into careers."
International Massage and Spa Academy is located at 4051 East Main Street, St. Charles, Illinois, within Pheasant Run Resort. By providing a real, operating spa environment to practice in, the setting is ideal for clinical work. Next program start is September 11, 2017.
