The Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage was founded in 1997 by Douglas Van D'Elia and Elizabeth M. Goldenberg. The program was registered by the New York State Board of Regents on February 4, 1997, and classes began in September of that year. The first campus was located on Walton Street in Syracuse, but was relocated to its current location at 719 East Genesee Street in April of 2003, to expand the school and include it as part of a holistic health center.
OSTM Rochester, NY, a branch campus of OSTM Syracuse, was opened in June of 2000 to fulfill the demand for a massage therapy school in that region.
The objective of the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage is to provide training in the science of massage with the intent of graduating exceptionally trained, high-quality massage therapists. Also, the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage hopes to enhance the community by increasing the accessibility to massage services in a variety of settings. The school hopes to act as an emissary to the community, facilitating the safety and education of the general public in regards to the benefits of massage, while maintaining a continuing education program and resource center for licensed massage therapists. The school offers both full-time and part-time programs, supported by modern equipment, beautiful learning environments and a highly qualified, talented teaching faculty. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
