Our students, faculty, and staff comprise a comforting community that provides each person with an enriching experience, enhancing their personal lives and careers.
Our program is designed for students that desire to make medical massage a career
The medical massage program offered at AIMM is designed for those who want to practice massage that produces healing effects in their clients such as pain relief from ailments like arthritis, chronic migraine, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, or injuries such as whiplash, herniated disc, tendonitis, frozen shoulder; or help induce structural correction to relieve pinched nerve, bad posture, and skeletal misalignment, etc.
