About Us – Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & Massage
POSITIVELY IMPACTING PAIN THRU MASSAGE TREATMENT THERAPY
Our goal at Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & Massage is twofold:
- To advance and promote the field of therapeutic massage through the generation of diverse, competent and well respected professional massage practitioners.
- To promote understanding within the general public of the value of massage therapy as a highly effective healthcare modality through interaction with staff and students in Student Clinic and fieldwork.
We continually strive to develop professionals who are prepared to implement advanced therapeutic techniques and positively impact the quality of care delivered by massage therapists.
“I joined Bodymechanics School a few months into the day program when the school I was going to closed their doors, allowing me to continue my education. In just the short month I have been with the school I have learned more than I could imagine. I feel that I do have the confidence to be a great massage therapist. I would recommend that if anyone is going to pursue a career as a massage therapist, this IS the school to go to!” Caitlin
History of Bodymechanics School
The Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy and Massage is a proprietary school owned by Shari L. 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 2033 Mottman Road SW #106 as Shari secured funding to purchase a new, 6000 square foot facility that has become a 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.
We continually hear from clients at our student massage clinic how surprised they are by the quality of work our students provide – often hearing “better than most professionals.” But, don’t just take our (or their) word for it! Curious – yet interested? Take us for a test ride and schedule your student massage and make up your own mind.
