2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
Welcome to the Ashland Institute of Massage. We are a small school with a big vision – educating hands, heart, and head for a holistic integration of Self and skills. We offer a 650-hour program of courses designed to prepare you for creating a fulfilling career as a professional massage therapist.

Founded in 1988, we provide quality education for massage therapists in a small-school environment and gorgeous locale. Our 650-hour massage program is for self-directed people committed to learning the foundations of massage therapy. This program integrates the human sciences of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, and pathology with the technical practice of Swedish massage, neuro-muscular therapies, medical/rehabilitation techniques and a variety of eastern, energy-based and somatic modalities. The curriculum also emphasizes “Core Integration,” focusing on your development as a practitioner and a businessperson, encompassing self-awareness, communication skills, ethics, and professional development.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
We offer a 650-hour professional massage program, with an emphasis on Swedish massage and introduction to several other massage and bodywork methodologies, such as neuromuscular techniques, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), cranio-sacral and myo-fascial therapies, and Eastern modalities such as polarity therapy, Thai massage and Shiatsu.

We have two schedules available: a “fast-track” day program and an evening/weekend program.

Evening/Weekend Program
The evening/weekend program is part-time (4 nights per week and two weekends per month) and takes 10 months (September-June) to complete. This program is ideal for students who must continue to work while attending school and/or who want to integrate their learning over a longer period of time.

Daytime Program
The daytime program is full-time, with starts in January (completing in June) and July (completing in December). This program is ideal for students who have the ability to integrate information and new skills quickly and who can focus exclusively on their studies for the six-month program. Because of the intense demands of the six-month program, students in this program may not work in addition to attending school.
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions have you been exploring?
Job's Body, The Trail Guide to the Body, The Anatomy Coloring Book, Theim Atlas of Anatomy, The Ethics of Touch, The Massage Therapists Guide to Pathology, Hands Heal, Taber's Manual, The Human Body, Buisiness Mastery, Energy Medicine, The Educated Heart, Tappan's Handbook of Healing Massage Techniques, Basic Clinical Massage Theory, and many more.

No Longer a Conspiracy Theory: CIA Director Admits Plans of Aerosol Spraying for Geoengineering | The Free Thought Project

Another example is the array of technologies—often referred to collectively as geoengineering—that potentially could help reverse the warming effects of global climate change. One that has gained my personal attention is stratospheric aerosol injection, or SAI, a method of seeding the stratosphere with particles that can help reflect the sun’s heat, in much the same way that volcanic eruptions do.

Treasure Trove of Documents Released Showing DuPont Knowingly Poisoned Entire Communities’ Drinking Water | Trofire

For the last few weeks, America’s Lawyer and Ring of Fire host Mike Papantonio has been in court facing off against DuPont. This is the second major DuPont trial that Pap has tried in the last 9 months over the company’s decision to pollute and poison an entire community with a chemical used in the manufacturing of Teflon. That chemical is known as C8, and it is a highly toxic chemical that causes severe adverse effects in people who are exposed to it, and the exposure continues for years since the chemical is biopersistent, meaning that it doesn’t get flushed out of the body.

Norway rewards Brazil with $1 billion for keeping the Amazon full of trees | Quartz

Brazil has more than risen to the task. By enforcing strict protection laws, promoting education efforts, and withholding loans to local counties that clear too much of the forest, the country has scaled back its forest destruction rate by 75%. It’s estimated that Brazilian farmers and ranchers have saved more than 33,000 square miles (roughly 53,100 square kilometers) of forest—equivalent to 14.3 million soccer fields—from being cut down.

Norway becomes first country in the world to commit to zero deforestation | Europe | News | The Independent
