If you’re looking for information on Portland massage schools, we invite you to join us on November 15th for our Massage College Preview Event. On that Saturday, from mid-morning to mid-afternoon, massage professionals, admission representatives, and teachers will gather to answer your questions about kicking off a massage therapist career.

From 10:00am to Noon, our admission representative will partner with a local professional massage therapist to answer your questions. How can I pay for massage school? What does it take to get a massage therapist certification or license? Can I complete a massage program while working a full-time job? Bring these and other queries, and get insight into what it’s like to be a massage therapist.

Next, from 12:30 to 3:30pm, take an introductory massage class from an East West College instructor. Learn how to set up a massage table, how to drape clients, and a basic massage stroke or two. You will be working in pairs; we’ll find you a partner if you don’t bring one to the event. It is recommended that you wear loose, comfortable clothing that’s easy to move in.

This is a great time to get into the massage therapy field. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, massage therapists can expect a 23% growth rate in available positions from 2012 to 2022. Considering that the average growth rate across all fields is 11%, it’s clear to see that demand for massage is growing fast. If you’re intrigued by massage therapy as a career, honor your curiosity by attending our Massage College Preview event on Saturday, November 15th on campus at 525 NE Oregon Street.
