Oregon Massage Licensing Update

OSM is proud to announce our new 640-hour pre-licensing program beginning this Fall 2015. The Oregon Legislature recently revised our massage statute, effective January 1, 2016, increasing the required training hours for Oregon LMTs to 625 hours. OSM’s 640-hour program will meet and exceed these requirements. This new program is based on the current 555-hour program and includes additional palpation, bodywork, and business/communication skills. Students will continue to have the option to declare an Eastern or Western focus for their training. The 555-Hour Program will continue to be available for those students who wish to be licensed in states with a 500-hour requirement such as Washington. The tuition for the 640-hour Program will be $11,450, which represents an increase based on additional hours only.

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.
