Chiropractic Assistant Training
Interspersed throughout the program, you’ll receive training to become a Certified Chiropractic Assistant (CCA). These classes prepare therapists to work in a cooperative relationship within a chiropractor’s office. A CCA is required by the state of Arizona for an individual to assist in chiropractic modalities. Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a CCA designation, with an emphasis in Physiotherapy and Acupuncture.
Valuable “Real World” Experience
Students in this program are required to complete professional training in the student clinic. It’s an opportunity to integrate all that is learned in the classroom and apply it to real life situations.
During each session you will give two massages, which means you’ll complete a total of at least 60 full massages throughout the program. We have found that this practice is of great assistance in bridging the gap between student and professional therapist. In addition to the student clinic, students are required to give one instructor tutorial massage with their instructor of choice.
ASIS believes that the deepest and most meaningful work must begin within the individual. Through journaling, you’ll have the opportunity to reflect on and take responsibility for your belief systems, learning processes and your own emotional and physical experiences. This happens both within the classroom and within the therapeutic relationship of giving and receiving bodywork.
The curriculum of the ASIS 750 hour Massage Therapy course fulfills Arizona’s minimal requirements for licensure. As a graduate of this program you’ll feel fully prepared for the licensure exam.
As an ASIS graduate you’ll make a smooth transition from student to Massage professional after gaining so much support, hands-on training and licensing preparation during your time with us.
