Northwest Academy for the Healing Arts

The Northwest's finest independent massage school. Campuses in Seattle, Tacoma, and Bellingham, WA

Northwest Academy offers a comprehensive curriculum which integrates the art and science of massage therapy and bodywork. We encourage students to view massage therapy as a part of a well-rounded approach to healthcare. Students gain first-hand knowledge of other healthcare disciplines from experienced faculty members, who are leaders in their own field. Students learn how massage treatments can compliment acupuncture, chiropractic, naturopathic and allopathic medicine.

Our students can either choose a 7-month weekday or a 12-month weekend massage program. These programs are designed to complement the schedule of students with full-time employment.

The coursework at Northwest Academy prepares our students to find employment opportunities in a wide variety of professional settings, such as: athletic training facilities, spas and resorts, hospitals, chiropractic offices, birthing centers, medical offices, wellness centers, airports, cruise ships, and private practice. Our students study a variety of massage therapy techniques, as well as communication skills, professional ethics and business management. Our on-site student massage clinic, located in the West Seattle Whole Health Center, gives students the opportunity to hone their massage and professional skills while working with individuals from our community.

Sometimes people ask; Why did you open a massage school in Bellingham? I took a walk around the Bellingham campus this afternoon and this is what I found; nature, beauty, friendly people & fresh sea air. Just to name a few. #bellingham #bellinghammassageschool #nature #bestmassageschool

Migraines for some are quite debilitating. Massage can definitely help reduce the frequency and severity of these headaches. #massageschool

Scoliosis and Massage Therapy - Northwest Academy Massage School

I love seeing the results of massage therapy with our clients that have Scoliosis. "Easier to breathe", "less pain", "more comfortable", "increase in trunk range of motion". Just a few post massage quotes from our clients : ) You may have already helped clients who suffer from Scoliosis. Massage therapy is a safe addition to any client’s treatment plan.
