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

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

Melliza Taylor, Class 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.
