Massage Therapy Programs – San Diego

The decision to receive a master’s level education at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine was, by far, one of the best decisions I’ve made in life. I am living my passion! I am now part of a major integrative medicine practice at an urban hospital. I thank PCOM for their role in building my foundation and giving me the courage and support to fly.

Massage Therapy Programs – San Diego

Students in the Asian Holistic Health & Massage program are immersed in courses that truly embody balance, bringing Eastern and Western massage together at one of the best massage schools in California. Students study and apply Tui Na, Swedish massage, shiatsu, Thai massage and a host of other styles. Biomedical courses help prepare practitioners for both medical and spa settings and allow them to fully understand how massage techniques affect the body on a physical level. 

As an intern in the clinic, you will work as part of a holistic medical team comprised of massage practitioners, licensed acupuncturists, supervisors and fellow students. The clinical experience gives you the practical, hands-on experience you need to make a smooth transition into a professional clinic and learn how to become a massage therapist.
