Every month, we hold a Massage Career Preview event to give prospective students the chance to ask questions, see the college, and get some hands-on experience. In May, our Massage Career Preview event will be held on 5/17. If you’ve been considering a career in massage, we encourage you to come to an East West College Massage Career Preview for more in-depth information about our program, our accreditation, and other logistical considerations, including financial aid. Choosing from massage schools in Portland is a visceral process; attending a Massage Career Preview can help you get a good “gut feeling” for whether East West College would be a good fit for you.

We offer two free classes for prospective students at each event:

10:00 am – 12:00 noon: Massage Career Preview

Get the details on our massage therapy program. In this session, you’ll also learn about the massage profession. A Licensed Massage Therapist will be on hand, so that you can hear one professional’s personal experience of attending massage school, achieving licensure, and transitioning into the massage job market. An East West College representative will also attend the session, to answer program questions and provide a tour of our beautiful and extensive facilities.

12:30 – 3:30pm: Introduction to Massage
In the afternoon, prospective students will have a chance to get a little hands-on experience. You’ll learn how to set up a massage table, and we’ll practice a few professional massage strokes in a class setting, to give you a feel for how classes go at East West College. We will work in pairs, so you can bring a friend, or partner up with someone at the event. Loose, comfortable clothing is best for this part of the Massage Career Preview.

Whether you’re looking to get a massage certificate with a focus on sports massage therapy, Eastern massage modalities, traditional deep tissue massage, or another hands-on healing technique, our Massage Career Preview event will give you the information and experiences you need to decide how to take the next step forward in your career.
