This is a part-time, adjunct faculty position. The hours per week will vary depending on when the course is scheduled to be taught.
We are seeking someone to teach an Infant and Pediatric Massage course beginning in the winter term (01/03/2019).
We are transitioning our Infant Massage course to encompass pediatric massage as well, due to increased interest and need in that area of focus.
This course will provide an introduction to infant and pediatric massage therapy. Students will learn the basics of how massage therapy is used and adapted during the growth and development in children, starting with micro preemie through adolescence, as well as gain an understanding of many common conditions you will see in generally healthy infants and pediatric population. The course will discuss how massage therapy is being used today in many settings and how massage impacts the child and the family. We stress the importance of research with infant/pediatric massage in cultivating an evidence informed practice, and identifying regulations and guidelines for working safely and appropriately with these populations in a massage practice.
Certificate in Massage Therapy (required)
2 years of experience working with the pediatric population (required)
2 years of teaching experience (required)

The University has a clear mission and reputation of developing excellent academic and professional programs in what has been traditionally described as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).

While the institution’s history is rooted in the chiropractic profession, the University strives to position itself as an institution focused more broadly on health and wellness. As the demand for their graduates in chiropractic, acupuncture, nutrition, oriental medicine and massage therapy continues to grow, they believe they are uniquely positioned to offer a range of patient care options that are natural, evidence-based, cost-effective, non-invasive and integrated with traditional medicine. Under the leadership of Dr. Deb Bushway, the Universi...ty is poised for growth in academic program offerings, the pursuit of new healthcare innovations and a research agenda that will contribute to the advancement of health and wellness through integrative care.
