Common Questions:

How do I save my spot for a class at ASM?

Fill out our enrollment application and make a tuition down payment (at least $500). This will save your place in an upcoming class. Application forms are available in both printed and online formats.  For students using a monthly payment plan, their tuition down payment will count as their first month’s tuition payment, and may be made by cash, check, card, or paypal. For special situations, please contact our office.

What does the job market look like for Massage Therapists today?

The job market is great! According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics…
 “Employment of massage therapists is projected to grow 21 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand will likely increase as more healthcare providers understand the benefits of massage and these services become part of treatment plans.
We see a strong need for massage therapists, both in our area and nationwide.

What makes ASM special?

SO much! Here at ASM, we are proud to offer our students an excellent education with hours and content exceeding many state and national organizations’ requirements. We offer our students small class sizes, creative payment structures and in-house aid, as well as a team of instructors and staff members that care about you and your future. We believe the most important thing that makes ASM special is YOU and the community that has grown and continues to grow as each new class begins.

How do I get my  License?

ASM will walk with you through each step of gaining your Michigan Massage Therapy License.  In Michigan, applicants are asked to complete a program that meets MI’s education requirements: 625 hrs (ASM is 842 hrs), pass a national exam (we prepare our students to complete the most widely used exam, the MBLEx), pass a background check, and provide fingerprints; in addition to their state massage license application form.
Massage practitioners in Michigan must obtain a state massage therapy license prior to working as a massage therapist. Every state has different requirements for individuals seeking to become a licensed massage therapist. ASM is committed to working with students after they graduate, and desires to be a helpful resource long into and throughout their career.
