The Downeast School of Massage trains individuals in the art and science of therapeutic massage for an entry-level professional career, for personal growth, or for continuing education. The school is the oldest school in Maine and is COMTA accredited, state licensed, and VA approved.
DSM is the oldest massage therapist owned and operated, COMTA accredited massage program in the State of Maine. COMTA, the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation, is approved by the federal Department of Education and is the only accrediting commission in our industry that has been given this distinction. Other accrediting agencies that are Department of Ed approved exist, but they have not been founded by our industry, do not carry the same required standards, and do not have the same investment in our profession as COMTA does. COMTA is one of three accrediting commissions devoted to complementary medicine; the other two represent chiropractic and acupuncture.
