I would recommend the massage therapy program at Humber because graduating students are thoroughly prepared for the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) registration exams." - Fernandine A.
"One of the main reasons I chose to study at Humber was because of their diverse list of student placement opportunities and partnerships for the various programs, and in my case Massage Therapy." - Cameron B.
"I chose Humber College not only because it had a great reputation but it offered a Massage Therapy program run by a highly educated faculty providing an excellent learning experience. I also noticed that it was a three-year program, instead of two, which meant that learning the material wouldn’t be rushed." - Patrick V.
"The faculty of the Massage Therapy Program at Humber is very dedicated to their students. During my time at Humber, the one thing I remember the most about the faculty was that they always gave the opportunity to learn more." - Justine C.
