About OSOM

Mission and Objectives:

The Ojai School of Massage is a community based center devoted to a holistic approach to healing. Our goal is to provide professional training of the highest quality in massage therapy, while enhancing the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical well-being of each student. The Ojai School of Massage strives to consistently provide a thorough and well rounded education to our students. The courses are designed to provide each student with the most current information available. We prepare our graduates to successfully enter the workforce as professional massage therapists (both human and small animal). The Ojai School of Massage maintains its standards that provide a clear framework for preparing students to work in their desired vocation.

We are a private institution approved by the BPPE to provide certificates of completion for the following programs: 250 hour Level I Human Massage, 250 hour Level II Human Massage, 200 hour Small Animal Massage program (100 onsite hours and 100 distance education), 150 hour Canine Massage Distance Education program (100 hours online/50 hours live lecture from your home).

In our 200-hour Canine Massage program, we teach you how to massage dogs and cats. This program includes 100 onsite hours and 100 home study hours. The home study hours include 50 hours of live online lecture from your home computer. Please click on the “Small Animal Massage-onsite Program” option on the menu to learn more about this course.

As we celebrate our 15th anniversary, we are moving into the future with new distance/online learning programs designed to help our students save time and money while maintaining high standards of education. Our 150-hour Canine Massage Distance Education program is a comprehensive distance learning program. This course includes all of the hands-on techniques covered in our onsite course and includes both audio and video instruction. This certification course is designed for students who prefer the flexibility of learning a new skill from their home a their own pace.
