Most Physical Therapist are not Massage Therapists, and few of PTs have enough experience in MT to be teaching it.
I have a BA in Social Work, BS in Nursing, and my graduate studies are in Psychology & Sociology. I have Certificates in Jin Shin Do, Polarity Therapy, and Therapeutic Touch, Therapeutic Massage, Seated Massage, and have studied Sports Massage, and Clinical Aromatherapy.
There is NO WAY you can obtain the knowledge necessary to be a very good Massage Therapist with 250 hours of study. You need a MINIMUM 500 - 750 hours. Most states now require this for a license. BTW, I learned more Anatomy in MT school than I ever learned in the BSN program. Nursing programs
just do not provide the education needed to become a MT. You DO need specialized education to be a MT.
