TCL massage program accredited

The Technical College of the Lowcountry massage therapy program recently earned special accreditation from the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation.

It is the first and only program in South Carolina to earn the accreditation, according to a TCL news release.

Of nearly 1,500 massage schools in the United States, about 100 have received and maintained the accreditation, which sets standards for massage teachers, the curriculum and program management.

Applications for fall entry to TCL's one-year massage therapy certificate program are being accepted.
