Tennessee School of Massage has an internship program in partnership with Living Health Day Spa. The internship experience prepares students to go out into the real world, by providing graduates with a behind the scenes look at how a real massage business works. The educational experience is further enhanced by health forums, visiting lecturers and practitioners, and volunteer projects in athletic events. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates receive a diploma and may apply to the Tennessee Massage Licensing Board for their state license or the respective boards of Arkansas, Mississippi or various other states. Students come to Tennessee School of Massage from every part of the United States to become licensed massage therapists in health spas, chiropractic offices, cruise ships, physical therapy clinics, hospitals, retirement communities, athletic clubs, beauty salons, or their own private practice.
