This school was founded by Robin Jensen in 1987. She was a graduate from the Boulder School of Massage Therapy. She owned her own practice and instructed for many years. The school moved to its current location in 1992. Our facility has a large classroom, a large technique room, kitchen, library, student office, private office, group room and two bathrooms. Many improvements have been made to the facility to be conducive to learning in a comfortable environment. The landscaping is clean, kept up and inviting. The front decks boast leisure and zen time for personal growth. The school utilizes 3 full-sized anatomy teaching skeletons, clay skeletons, and other learning aids for instructional purposes. The library receives new volumes as they become available.
In 2018, the school's ownership changed hands to Rebecca Herrmann, a former graduate of the program and owner of Royal Table Massage Therapy, and her esteemed colleague and co-owner, Heather Herrick. Rebecca & Heather both graduated from massage school in 2001. They work closely with Daniel Jensen, former owner, as he continuously strives to help, teach and enlighten minds with helpful tools, years of experience to draw from and endless proven resources.
