About Us

East-West Healing Arts Institute is a school for therapeutic massage education specializing in the integration of Eastern and Western modalities. Our 800-hour program (200 more than the minimum of 600 required by the state of Wisconsin for licensing) is designed to be completed in 10 months.

We offer a thorough course of study that we believe is unmatched in its breadth and scope. Our program includes structured classroom lecture as well as hands-on experience. We are here to provide you with a foundation for a truly holistic practice.

East-West Healing Arts Institute began in 2000 with just a few students gathered in a small Madison, WI. storefront. Since then we have moved to roomier quarters in a professional office building and many students have passed through our doors.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I would tell my friends that they are learning you get a good massage.

    She was very professional. This was 1st massage with Susan I would book another appointment with her.

  • East West Healing Arts Student massage clinic is a great value. The staff are friendly and helpful. I've gone to East West Healing Arts regularly for more than 10 years, and plan to continue as regular massages help support frequent cycling activities.

    each massage is different because students are learning. I've gone to the school for 20+ years and learn about my body pains and aches from students working on their techniques.

  • Of the many massages I have received, this was among the very best. However, there are relatively few appointments available.

    Bill was fantastic, with hands if awareness. Please replace the bright lightbulb in the first room, or add a dimmer.

  • Good

    Very professional

  • Overall very good experience. Bear in mind this is a massage school, so I don't expect the ambiance to be amazing.

    Excellent!

I like how she works out a plan for my massage on what I want to achieve either relaxation or working on tight muscles to loosen them up.
by Bill on May 05
Amelia has a very calm, relaxing, and smooth style, finding areas of tension and addressing those very effectively. Her skills are at the level of a professional, if you can schedule an appointment with her while she is student, or wherever she moves on to, you will find a therapist who provides a very relaxing and therapeutic massage.

Very professional, created a safe, relaxing environment. Was attentive to the areas that I felt needed addressing, asked about the correct amount of pressure, over-all a very rewarding experience.
by Beth on Feb 24
She was very encouraging and supportive of where I am, and offered to work with me on techniques to relax and ease my daily tension and discomfort.

Continually asked if what she was doing, met my needs. Didn't ask too much though. Told me areas that needed to be further addressed and what she would do to address those needs.

The therapist was most friendly and professional. My massage was with perfect pressure and hit all my knots and tension areas. She made short comments during the massage and didn't talk. And worked with me on my breathing. I plan to return and work with her again, and would recommend her to anyone.
