About our programs!
The Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage (RMSAAM) is pleased to offer Small and Large Animal Acupressure and Massage certification programs as well as continuing education classes, and workshops in both an On-site and Correspondence format.
We offer both correspondence programs as well as On-Site programs, that will prepare you for a career in Equine Massage, Canine Massage or Animal Acupressure.
Should you choose the On-site option, you will participate in canine and/or equine labs, experience case studies, and participate in supervised practice sessions that will prepare you for a written final exam and live practical on the final day.
If the Correspondence program is a better fit for you, you will receive class materials and guidance to complete your education at home and the support you need to then submit your case studies for approval.
What Is A “Certification” In Animal Massage Or Acupressure?
RMSAAM combines a proven curriculum, state credentialed and experienced instructors with a strong Code of Ethics to bring students the best adult education experience available. Our instructors and support staff strive to exceed student’s needs and expectations before, during and after their course studies. We offer continuing education classes, elective classes and guest instructors to ensure a balanced education.
Once you have successfully completed course requirements you will receive your Certification through Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage (RMSAAM). This certificate verifies that you have successfully completed all required study, classroom work, hands-on hours and testing in your program of study.
This certificate is a professional document from a state approved institution of higher education, RMSAAM. If you are in the state of Colorado (or any other state with similar animal massage laws) and plan to work with a veterinarian you should be prepared to show this document to the veterinarian and always have it on hand either in your office or on mobile appointments as proof that you have met state requirements.
RMSAAM’s reputation for quality is unsurpassed. We are recognized around the world for our quality instructors, excellent curriculum, published educational materials and testing standards. RMSAAM is a pioneer in the animal massage industry and in the political arena helping to write and pass laws allowing animal massage practitioners to practice what they have studied hard to achieve and love to do.
