Our Teaching Philosophy

Our teaching philosophy is simple. We keep class sizes small in order for students to experience ample one-on-one time with our highly skilled instructors. In the classroom, you will give/receive/teach massage, as well as preparing for your state licensing exam.

Eladah Waters

The Director and Owner, Eladah Waters, received her education from the Utah College of Massage Therapy in Salt Lake City, Utah. As our lead instructor, she develops the curriculum and oversees all hands on techniques.

Eladah has 18 years experience in the massage therapy industry. She travels all over the world receiving advanced training and learning new modalities and techniques to bring back to her students.

She has expert knowledge in sports massage and recovery due to her extensive work with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Oklahoma State University, and the University of Oklahoma. Her belief in the healing powers of massage therapy along with her desire to educate the public on the professionalism of massage therapy has made her an advocate for stricter licensing practices for our state.

what people say about us

Best decision I have ever made. I still have Eladah in my head 9 years later saying Renee put your shoulders down!

Brenda Renee RandallClass of 2009

Best massage therapy education I could've ever received!!!

Melliza TaylorClass of 2015

Eladah’s personal touch and laser focus is different from any other massage instructor or college that I have experienced. She cares for every student and works to make sure that you not only gain the knowledge but gain confidence to work at the highest level possible. OCMT creates an experience long past the classroom. The instructors are very patient and encouraging, as well as helpful. The atmosphere allowed me to learn at my pace.

Deciding to attend OCMT was one of the best decisions I ever made! The staff and team there goes above and beyond to ensure each student understands the material and techniques being taught.  Additionally, they offer the best hands-on opportunities to allow us to hone our skills!  I Love my OCMT Family, Eladah, Julie, Celeste and classmates.
