In 1987, AMC established a six-month
Massage Therapy training program.
This course was originally
designed for our Acupuncture students. It enabled them,
in just a few short months, to earn a living practicing
Shiatsu, while completing their Acupuncture studies.
In 1988, we expanded
our program to a seven month massage therapy program,
welcoming all qualified students who want to become
Massage Therapists. We are specifically designed for
those who wish to specialize in Shiatsu. For more details,
see the Massage Therapy Program's course
In January of 2000
our Massage Therapy Program underwent a major curriculum
change. Now we can boast that over 80 percent of our
bodywork classes teach a form of Oriental Bodywork.
We follow the Shiatsu system of Professor Tomiezo Hoshino.
In August of 2007, we lengthened the Massage Therapy program to 720 hours. This enabled us to expand our clinic training and ensure that our graduates receive extensive practical experience.
