Irene’s Supportive Community

The core of what makes our institute exceptional is our commitment to excellence.  We are proud to have experienced and engaging instructors in our classrooms.  Combined with the compassionate support staff in our offices makes for an outstanding educational experience.

A good instructor inspires students to learn. At Irene’s Michigan Massage School, we know how important it is for students to be provided with guidance and support from the office staff. Everyone working at Irene’s has been hand-selected based not only on their skills but their desire to help others succeed. 

Take a moment to remember your favorite teacher. Do you have fond memories of someone who made you feel special and your learning process fun? Were they a talented individual who could take an otherwise boring subject and bring it to life? This person left a positive impression on your memory forever.

Our faculty members are supportive, experienced and skilled educators. They are committed to making learning fun and enjoyable.

Each of our teachers brings a special element to their class and are eager to share their knowledge with their students. Positive memories of your Irene’s experience will last a lifetime.

Our hands-on massage classes provide the opportunity for individual attention, as the teacher cultivates the unique spark in each student. All of Irene’s massage instructors have years of experience working as professional myomassologists along with teaching at Irene’s. These gifted individuals are eager to share their knowledge.
