Cosmetology at TSPA Rochester. Embrace Your Creativity

Let’s imagine for a minute.

You arrive at school and are instantly surrounded by friends who greet you with hugs and excited smiles. After swapping stories, you make your way to the newly renovated classrooms and settle in before a large demonstration and media space, where new fixtures and televisions wait to fill your mind with new ideas. You don’t open books yet however, because when the teacher arrives everything is full of music and excitement and positive vibes as everyone gets ready for the day.

You and your friends spend a few minutes dancing and sharing before the real fun begins: learning and absorbing all things hair and beauty.

This isn’t a dream, nor is it some perfect high school experience.

This is how a typical day starts at The Salon Professional Academy, Rochester.

Interested in Massage? The Program at TSPA Rochester Could Get You There.

The wellness and beauty industry is a vibrant and growing career path with new doors opening every day. In fact, no other part of this industry is seeing the growth that the massage therapy industry is, with a massive 22% increase by 2024.

If you have been thinking of a career as a massage therapist, there has never been a better time to pursue it than now. No matter if you changing career paths or pursuing a dream fresh out of high school, you can find a home and a quality education at The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), Rochester.

An Education That Goes Above and Far Beyond

Massage Program at TSPA Rochester

The state of Minnesota has a unique set of requirements for therapists. In fact, in Minnesota, the individual counties set their own requirements for therapists.

This can leave schools with more wiggle room to fill their curriculum with knowledge they believe best fills the needs of the industry. However, it can also leave spas and hospitals desperate for therapists with a healthy education featuring a wide array of skills, and perhaps even a passing score in the MBLEx. With so few requirements set by the state many employers are left staring at a gap in education that could leave them without the staff they need.

It is this gap that our massage program at TSPA Rochester seeks to fill.

In the city of Rochester there is only a 500 hour education requirement for massage therapists. Our class, however, goes above that reaching 750 hours of in-depth training. If that seems like a lot of unneeded hours, rest assured that every one of those is important.

That is because we train our students for the MBLEx, the massage licensing test used by the wide majority of states in their licensing processes. A passing score in this test opens up many doors and career opportunities across the country and even around the world. A passing score also means an in-depth education, with a mastery in several different types of massage.

By keeping our class sizes small and our program varied, we seek to meet our goal, but it takes more than that to set us apart.

An Education from Switzerland to Japan

In order to help our students stay competitive and ready for the MBLEx, we proudly include many different types of massage in our curriculum.

We train our students in a wide majority of massage skills, with each specialty receiving almost a hundred hours of hands-on practical experience. From Swedish, to Sports Massage, to Hot Stone, and everything in between, we delve deep into each skill, giving our students an opportunity to master those techniques. Together it creates a varied education that could help them create a wonderful career, no matter where in the world it takes them.

Massage is More than Relaxation

Massage Program at TSPA Rochester

When people think of massage, often they think of relaxing spas. Massage is so much more than that, however. In order to provide a deep relaxation, massage therapists need to know everything that goes behind it. By including training in anatomy, pathology, kinesiology, and ethics our schooling is more than just massage, it’s the depth of knowledge that a student needs to create a career that they can be proud of.

A Spa Experience to Prepare You for a Spa Life

So much of where you gain your education impacts the types of positions you will find yourself in later.

We put a heavy focus on training our students in an environment much like they will find themselves in. With relaxing facilities that are custom built to cultivate learning, our students work together before moving to clients, helping them master business and communication skills that employers are looking for.

If you are looking for a future in this growing industry, you are going to want the training behind you that could make those dreams come true.

Contact us today to discover how our program could shape your future in the beauty industry. With classes starting every twelve weeks, and financial aid available to those who qualify, you do not want to let this opportunity pass you by.
