This is an exciting time for you as you consider the next step in your life journey. We
have entered a new era in healthcare – an unprecedented time of convergence between com-
plementary and “traditional” Western healthcare. As the cost of medicine continually increas-
es, many people are seeking responsibility for their own healthcare. Choices in alternative
health have made an impact on the American public, allopathic medicine, insurance compa-
nies, and education of a variety of health professional fields. People of all ages and lifestyles
are actively including professional bodywork in their personal health and wellness plan.
Harvard Medical research found that at least one in three Americans routinely uses alterna-
tive therapies. In fact, over one-fourth of American adults have received professional mas-
sage in the past five years, spending $4-6 billion on these services each year – an astounding
amount of money considering that these expenses were not covered by insurance and were
paid for out of pocket.
As a part of this trend toward alternative health care, students are seeking the benefits of
attending massage school. They want to be their own boss, work with other health profes-
sionals, or use their career as a part-time addition to current work. At TEMS, students are
constantly reminded of their own self-care and personal growth, as well as learning how to
help their clients help themselves. Attending massage school is much more than learning les-
sons. It helps create confidence, build character, and develop a healthy physical and emotion-
al attitude toward life. We will work with you every step of the way to make your experience
at the school meaningful and to support you in the life changes that will happen as a result of
your career choice.
TEMS offers the most comprehensive and experiential program to those planning to join
the momentous growth of the profession. Our program offers a powerful combination of edu-
cational excellence and balance—balance between classic Western massage, bodywork in the
Eastern tradition, clinical massage specialization, and bodywork focusing on the integration
of mind, body, and spirit.
We encourage you to fully explore your options in massage therapy education. We are
confident that you will find our program to be unparalleled—an educational experience with
potential for a rewarding vocation and professional growth opportunities that will last a life-
