The Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy and Massage is a proprietary school owned by Shari Aldrich, LMT. The school was founded in 1999 by Robert B. Haase, LMT, with the initial class convening in April, 2000. In July, 2010, Shari Aldrich became the owner of the school, and continues the excellent tradition for “creating exceptional therapists”.
In 2012, Bodymechanics School landed in its “forever” home at 2330 Mottman Road SW #106 as Shari secured funding to purchase a new, 6000 square foot facility that has become an education destination in Thurston County.
In 2016, Bodymechanics School launched our Vancouver massage school campus. We’ve experienced great growth in a short amount of time and classes are filling up with people from Southwest Washington and Portland, OR. Our advanced massage program is creating a new type of massage therapist in Vancouver – an advanced therapist who excels in treatment-based massage modalities.
In March, 2021, Bodymechanics School of Massage – Santa Fe was launched. We are proud and excited to continue our mission of “creating exceptional massage therapists” in New Mexico. Born out of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bodymechanics School is poised to thrive and help hundreds of soon-to-be massage therapists get their start.
Massage therapy continues to be one of the fastest growing professions in the US.
The need for therapeutic touch has never been more important than it is today. Sadly, the number of massage schools in the US are declining as many of the larger, for-profit schools have closed. With COVID, we saw hundreds more small, proprietary schools close their doors across the US.
However, the interest in massage continues to soar as the public is incorporating massage as part of their healthcare routines. Employers in the regions of our 3 campuses regularly reach out to Bodymechanics asking us to share employment opportunities.
Whether you dream of owning your own business some day, or you are looking for a great career, we’ll guide you on your journey and make sure you are prepared for the demands of the profession.
We look forward to hearing from you.
