AIM is warmly welcoming applications for the upcoming 2024/25 !
Full-Time Massage Training Program
The 725-hour Professional Massage Program at the Ashland Institute of Massage is designed to develop massage practitioners with a deep appreciation of the human body, a solid foundation in therapeutic and relaxation massage techniques, valuable clinical assessment and treatment skills, business fundamentals, and a greatly enhanced understanding of Self and community. Our graduates enter the workforce as highly prepared and competent massage therapists, ready to find employment in a wide variety of settings or to begin their own private practice.
Building on a foundation of traditional Swedish massage, our program deepens into myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, and advanced therapeutic assessment and treatment techniques. Your student clinical experience will help you integrate academic knowledge of the body, hands-on techniques, case assessment and treatment, and client relations skills.
2023 – 2024 Massage Training Program

Our Intensive Day Program starts September 5, 2023 and completes July, 2024.

Partial Program Students
Partial Program students enter the program having completed a portion of their training at AIM or another massage school or are massage therapists from other states who need additional training and specific courses to fulfill Oregon licensing requirements. These students’ requirements are established prior to enrollment based on their prior training. AIM has the right to require specific courses that we deem to be acceptable in meeting the OBMT’s requirements. Students may take additional courses at their choosing. Tuition for partial program students is $23/course hour.
Occasionally, students who are not pursuing a massage degree but are interested in a specific course are accepted (including licensed therapists), given that there is room in the course and the instructor allows students to audit his or her course. These students pay $9/course hour, do not take exams, and do not receive a transcript or certificate in massage therapy. Auditing students may not be eligible to sit for the Oregon Board Exam.
