Profile

The Downeast School of Massage was established in 1980 for the purpose of training individuals in the health professional career field of Massage Therapy. DSM began with the founder-director, Nancy Dail, and four determined students. As the years passed, the school has grown with its graduates and the profession. Although the program began with a strong core curriculum of Swedish Massage and related courses, additional courses and program shifts gradually developed, as the vision of the profession became reality. DSM became committed to giving students a quality personal education that included more choice in diverse selections of Shiatsu, Sports Massage, or Body/Mind Courses.

The mission of the Downeast School of Massage is to train individuals in the art of science of therapeutic massage for an entry-level professional career, for continuing education, and for personal growth. The program content is based not only on meeting the 500-hour minimum required by most states and the National Certification Board, but also on our instructors' and administrators' years of experience in the field and their understanding of the depth and wide range of knowledge and skills that are necessary for practicing massage in a caring, competent manner. DSM encourages staff to create a mutual feeling of support that will permeate the student body. Our friendly and helpful administration is dedicated to providing excellent service to all our students. While our professional staff is always committed to ongoing improvements in the school and the program, they are actively involved in establishing and upholding high standards of education and practice.

Despite its small size and rural location, the Downeast School of Massage has been a mecca for high profile educators in the field. Advanced trainings and certificate programs are regularly presented in Zero Balancing, Anatomy Trains, injury assessment and myofascial forms of bodywork, oncology massage, & equine massage.
