The Physical Therapy Aide/Massage Therapist program offered by American College of Healthcare and Technology (ACHT) in Riverside and Huntington Park, CA, is a unique program with two majors; Physical Therapy Aide and Massage Therapist. Do you want a career that enhances the lives of others? Physical therapy aides and massage therapists are important members of the health care field which helps patients improve mobility, relieve pain and prevent or lessen disabilities.

The key characteristics of a person entering either of these careers is a commitment to the service of others, willingness to provide quality health care as a part of a healthcare team, and an interest in the day-to-day operations of a modern health care facility. Having an empathetic personality and strong communication skills also go a long way in creating a trusting relationship with clients or patients.
