NEW PROGRAM: Start Your Career in Massage Therapy!


Willis College is thrilled to be launching a new program in Massage Therapy! Starting THIS FALL, students will be able to attend classes at our Ottawa campus to earn their diploma in the exciting and in-demand field of Massage Therapy.

The Massage Therapy program is an excellent fit for:

  • Someone who enjoys helping others
  • Someone who is interested in healthcare
  • People interested in working in a multi-disciplinary healthcare clinic, athletic facility, or being their own boss
  • Someone who enjoys a flexible work schedule that suits their lifestyle
  • A person that wants to enhance their existing skills or develop new skills relevant to today’s career market
  • A recent graduate who wants to specialize in an emerging career in the healthcare field

We’ll be honest, this program isn’t easy, but the career does come with some incredible perks!

Massage Therapists can work in a variety of environments including private clinics, hospitals, spas, and even from home (if they like to!). they can generally set their own hours and work as much, or as little as life allows. As a result, this job is perfect for a parent who needs to work around their children’s schedule, someone who is looking to make extra money on the side, or someone who needs flexible hours for other reasons.

Another fantastic perk of the job is the ability to work anywhere in Canada. the certifications that you will earn through the Willis College Massage Therapy Program are valid from coast-to-coast allowing you to travel, move, and maintain your incredible career helping people!

And, you can get the program done FAST! While our standard program is 81 weeks (classes from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM Monday to Friday), our accelerated program is only 67 weeks (with classes from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM Monday to Friday)*.

*Student schedules may vary as the college’s Massage Therapy Clinic and Massage Therapy Outreach hours may be outside of regular classroom hours.

What Our Graduates Are Saying

Online schooling was helpful in working around my schedule. It allowed me to gain the education I needed from the comfort of my own home. Despite online classes, you receive a quick response when help is needed.
