|NEW ZEALAND'S EDUCATION
New Zealand College of Massage
The Leader in massage therapy education
For over 20 years we have seen phenomenal growth in massage and the natural health industry in New Zealand and internationally. The College has led the way: the first college to be accredited to deliver NZQA massage standards, and the first to offer a three year degree programme with specialisation in both sports and neuromuscular therapy.
Twenty-seven years of training sit behind the reputation of NZCM for quality, both in delivery and graduate success. We are established as a niche provider with the Tertiary Education Commission and have achieved the highest level of audit cycle with NZQA. This external scrutiny, along with our established reputation, provides on-going assurance for students.
The primary objective of New Zealand College of Massage is to provide the highest quality education in a range of bodywork therapies. Students are encouraged to develop their own intuitive qualities to accompany a scientific knowledge base.
