Sallie Urffer, NCC Faculty

"Some of the most rewarding facets of teaching massage therapy are helping students overcome their hesitations and teaching them to think critically about eliminating pain," says Sallie Urffer.

"NCC's massage therapy program is one of very few such credit programs in Pennsylvania.  Credit programs are well rounded and are more scientifically based," she adds.   

If you're looking for a career with flexibility, massage therapist is a great choice.  "One can be self-employed, an independent contractor or an employee.  One can specialize in areas like medical massage, or sports massage. Many graduates continue on to other degrees," Urffer says.
