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.


Body Mechanics for Massage Therapists


"Staying Alive for Another 25". Kitty Lawrence has been an LMT for 26 years and still loves it. This course is a synthesis of her years of study and practice. With aliveness and awareness at the core, we will focus on applying the laws of physics to our work to create a more healthful and joyful massage dance. Included will be Beth McKee's system of using the bones as levers, joints as hinges, and weight transfer. Self care exercises provided. (NCBTMB Approved)
