East West College
East West College has prepared graduates for successful massage careers since 1972. We empower students with deep knowledge in the art and science of massage. Together, East West College alumni, instructors, and students foster health through our graduates’ private practices, Our Massage Clinic and outreach events. We also support current licensed massage therapists with a large variety of continuing education workshops.
East West College is accredited by the prestigious Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA), the only federally recognized accrediting agency with specific curriculum standards for massage.
In COMTA’s own words, “Accreditation identifies and acknowledges educational institutions and programs for achieving and maintaining a level of quality, performance and integrity based on educational and professional standards.” COMTA sets high standards for all parts of the college’s operations — from curriculum to faculty to finances. COMTA accreditation assures students that the college has met or exceeded standards that specifically apply to the field of massage.
In addition to COMTA accreditation, East West College’s program is licensed by the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission and approved by the following organizations:
