School of Holistic Massage


The School of Holistic Massage is the only massage school in Galveston County, and provides high-quality education to massage therapists needing advanced training in the Galveston-Houston region.  SOHM supports the community through need-based scholarships and collaborative improvement projects.


The School of Holistic Massage will instruct new massage therapists to be highly skilled and highly marketable in a changing industry.  In the same building, The Massage Cottage will serve as a student clinic for interns as well as professional therapy sessions.  They will both serve the community through scholarships given only to those in the most poverty-stricken zip codes in the area, as well as low-cost sessions for low-income households.
