The Ancient Arts Massage School and Clinic, located in Richland, Washington, has been serving the Tri-Cities and surrounding locations since 1995. Our massage school program debuted in 1999 and since then we’ve graduated 2 classes per year, of successful massage therapists. Over all, 90% of our graduates have gone on to pass the National Certification Exam.
The AAMS staff is committed to:
Producing highly educated and working massage practitioners
Upholding the highest standards of performance, behavior, and ethics through our conduct, appearance, and demeanor
Educating students to accept future challenges by learning and developing new skills and techniques to provide the highest quality of service
The driving force behind AAMS is our desire to educate students for the future. Many medical insurance plans accept massage as a medical treatment. Unfortunately, most other massage programs do not reflect this in their curriculum. Our program’s aggressive kinesiology, medical science and business programs, on the other hand, challenge students to learn not only basic massage, but also how to deal effectively with insurance companies and doctors’ offices. Many programs boast a “Medical Massage” class, but at AAMS we have always integrated medical massage into our instruction.
We feel these courses are invaluable in allowing our students to compete in the changing environment of professional medical massage. We train our students to spot problems and advise their clients on how to change their body mechanics at home and on the job to prevent future problems. AAMS strives to bring educational excellence to Southeastern Washington with our curriculum and continuing education programs.
I attended a year after my son, he changed careers again but I love my new found independence.
When I attended a recent convention, I was shocked to learn not all schools have such a detailed curriculum. I sure got lucky choosing AAMS.
