The gift is in your hands; learn to use it at Oregon School of Massage!

We offer massage and bodywork courses for aspiring massage therapists, licensed professionals and the general public. We believe what a therapist communicates through their touch, combined with knowledge of the body and presence, can make the difference between a basic massage and a truly healing experience. Explore our website to discover how we incorporate this philosophy to train well-rounded massage therapists.
