Massage Therapist

Massage therapists treat clients by using touch to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. They reduce pain, help to rehabilitate injuries, increase circulation, increase relaxation, reduce stress, and promote the overall general well-being of the patient. Massage therapists typically speak with patients about symptoms, medical history, and their desired results. They evaluate clients, perform massage therapy to the soft tissues of the body, provide clients with stretching and strengthening routines, and document clients’ condition and progress.

“Don't be afraid to pivot and do something different. Life is about utilizing your passion.”

Chad Tingen

Horry-Georgetown Technical College

ROI was very important to me. HGTC has provided me with a 2.5-year college degree for a very minimal investment. Job prospects in my industry are great, which puts me in a position to repay student loans quickly so I’m not still digging out from debt a decade down the road. I will be in a much better financial position without all the debt I would have incurred had I opted to go back to a four-year college.
