Online Massage Schools vs. Hands-On Classrooms: Pros and Cons

While the Internet has brought many conveniences and benefits to people without access to reliable, knowledgeable resources within their communities, online trade schools simply cannot provide the level of insight, experience, and access to equipment required for success in professional careers such as massage therapy.

5 Reasons Why Adults Make Excellent Massage School Students

At DiscoveryPoint School of Massage, we see prospective students coming through our doors from all walks of life, and all age groups. Whether it’s a young adult preparing to start their first career, or a retiree looking for a fulfilling part-time occupation, we know that going to massage school is an excellent choice for the adult learner. Here’s why:

1. Maturity
A good massage therapist isn’t just a skilled, hands-on technician – a good massage therapist is also a great listener and insightful observer. These traits are much more common in adult students in general, and very common here at Discoverypoint since the average age of our student body tends to be 30 to 34 years of age. That means our younger students get to learn from the maturity of older classmates, and those elders get a big injection of enthusiasm and fresh ideas from the younger generation.

Advantages of Small Class Sizes

We believe the Discoverypoint School of Massage offers the finest Professional Massage Program (PMP) in Seattle based on several factors; the foremost being the depth and breadth of knowledge of our faculty, as well as their passion and experience as teachers.  Another thing that our students point out as what sets us apart from other regional massage schools, is the quality learning environment created by our small class sizes. We have a student-to-teacher ratio of 14:1 in all of our hands-on classes to ensure more in-depth and personalized feedback for...

Two of Discoverypoint’s founders and teachers co-authored the book Applied Anatomy & Physiology for Manual Therapists, which has since become a widely-taught and important resource for massage education. Our own coursework at Discoverypoint uses this text. Here’s a conversation with authors Patricia Archer and Lisa Nelson about their book. What inspired you to write the book? Lisa (joking): Pat made me do it. Pat: Well, actually, we’d been teaching together for a long time at the Brenneke School of Massage, and we’d both been teaching different anatomy and physiology classes, and we’d found...
