The Port Townsend School of Massage (PTSM) is recognized as one of the premier massage schools in the Pacific Northwest. This is not only due to our challenging curriculum and excellent faculty, but also to our location in beautiful Port Townsend, WA, a renowned mecca for holistic healing professionals and educators.

Our philosophy is to provide students with the diverse, hands-on experience they need to develop successful careers, while consistently giving back to our community through the healing power of touch.

The Professional Licensing Program for Massage Therapy is offered in two formats: a 650 hour Weekday Program and a 525 hour Weekend Program. Both programs exceed Washington State's professional licensing requirements of 500 hours of training.
 

The Weekday Program is completed in nine months. Upon completion of all course requirements for competency, the student is awarded a certificate of completion. The State of Washington also requires that each student complete four hours of AIDS/HIV training and be currently certified in First Aid and CPR by the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association. These courses can be completed through the Port Townsend School of Massage. These completed requirements will enable the student to sit for the State Board examination. More details.....

The Port Townsend School of Massage offers courses and workshops to professional massage practitioners, bodyworkers, and others in the health care field who are interested in continuing their education and training.

The classes offer a chance to learn new modalities, develop advanced techniques and practices, learn about changes in your field, or simply get credits needed for recertification.

Courses in advanced certification give licensed massage professionals the opportunity to explore, train, and specialize in specific massage modalities. The instructors of these courses bring to the classroom extensive backgrounds of education and experience gained from both practice and teaching. The learning environment in the classroom provides each student with the necessary training, tools, support, and certification to further their knowledge and confidence - so they can take their own practices to new levels.

Our weekend workshops are offered at various times of the year in one to four day formats. Each year we offer classes that we feel are informative, useful, inspiring, and fun. Class listings are usually based on subject requests from our massage community of colleagues, graduates, and students.
