The Northwest School of Massage has been training students to become highly knowledgeable and competent health care practitioners since 1995.  We are privately owned and operated to ensure the highest integrity of the school and all its graduates.  We are continuously striving to provide students, both current and former, with the highest quality education possible.  Once a student graduates from our school, it is just the beginning of our relationship.  We want our students to think of NWSM as a place they can always return to, whether it be to learn a new technique, “brush-up” on a technique already learned, or to get help with business and practice-building.


We look forward to getting to know you personally!

About Our School

Just as in our massage practices, we make a concentrated effort to focus on each individual student in our small classes so that we can help you become the best possible massage therapist. It's why we have kept our class sizes so small (a max of 12 students per class). It is also why we carefully screen and hire instructors who have very diversified backgrounds and a passion for teaching our students. More...

Our next Day Program begins September 2015. This class schedule is ideal for stay-at-home parents who want to start transitioning into a new career!  This seven month class runs Monday - Friday for 28 weeks with a 3 week break in December.  Call to schedule a school tour and sit in on some classes to "interview" current students and instructors.  This allows you to get a more realistic idea of what the classes are like and to determine if Northwest School of Massage is the right school for you!


Our tuition is $10,900 including books and most supplies. Our school strives to have no "hidden costs" or unexpected expenses for the student.  All your books, note packets and most massage supplies are included in the tuition cost.

Tuition Assistance
We are very excited to announce that we have about $15,000 in Tuition Grants available for the next few classes. That is a lot of tuition assistance! Make sure to apply as soon as possible; there is no commitment for early application, and grants are awarded on a first-come basis.
