Downeast School of Massage offers open house
Waldoboro — The Downeast School of Massage has been in business for more than 30 years and new therapists are needed to help fulfill career opportunities. The Downeast School of Massage will hold a free open house Saturday, July 7 at 1 p.m.
Participants will receive application packets and will be introduced to the many opportunities in the massage therapy profession and to the competency-based curriculum that the Downeast School of Massage offers in the upcoming September 2012 program.
The event will include a tour of the classrooms, library, hydrotherapy department with spa and sauna, and DSM store. Refreshments will be served in the student lounge. Tuition financing is available and the many financing choices will be discussed.
The over 600-hour curriculum at DSM is the oldest massage school in Maine and has a very experienced faculty. Completion of the Maine-state-approved program allows students to apply for licensure for massage therapy in the state of Maine without further testing. The 10-month, or two-year Body/Mind centered program includes extensive instruction in anatomy, physiology, pathology, massage, student clinic, kinesiology, hydrotherapy, introduction to nutrition and reflexology and depending on the student’s major, intensely focused coursework in sports massage, shiatsu, or an introduction to various forms of energy work like polarity, cranial sacral and energy classes. Student supplies will include the school’s DVD “A Gift of Touch” and Director Nancy Dail’s new book, “Kinesiology for Manual Therapies,” published January 2010.
The school is located on 100 acres at 99 Moose Meadow Lane off Route 220 North (Washington Road) in Waldoboro.
