Promoting the Profession
Our alumni provide such quality service, that many of their clients begin their own pursuit of a career in massage therapy?
Remember our Alumni Referral Program* if you direct individuals to apply to school.
*Alumni who refer a student that successfully enrolls and completes the program at OSTM, will receive a $100 gift certificate to the OSTM bookstore when the referred student graduates from the program.
If you encouraged individuals to apply, be sure they cite you as a referral source!
