    If you are considering enrollment at EWSMT, you should visit our facility and talk with the School Director to ensure that our programs and instructional philosophy meet your expectations.    Arrangements can be made for you to attend a current class session, or we can also put you in touch with our graduates for their impressions of our programs.   Because you will be making a substantial investment in terms of time, money and effort, it is important to give serious consideration to how well the school matches your desires and expectations.


East West Massage Therapy was established in 1989 by Marilyn McGrath. She retired from teaching after 30 years in the public school system. She studied massage therapy at Kripalu in Massachusetts, and Shiatsu bodywork at the International School of Shiatsu in Pennsylvania. The Massage School began in 1996 when it was approved by the PA Dept. of Education. An LLC partnership was officially formed in 2005.  Marilyn was a firm believer in combining the best aspects of Western Medicine and Eastern Medicine in her teaching philosophy and in her approach to hands-on healing. She provided a holistic setting—to include mind, body, and spirit, in her instruction and helping clients to be free of pain. This mindset is imbued in our dedicated, professional therapeutic staff and the instructors in our massage school.
