Become a Licensed Massage Therapist
Session: January 12 - May 14 2022

About Us

Our mission is to unfold consciousness through the art and science of massage therapy, and we strive to bring the subtle science of bodywork to life through your hands. We understand the important healing work that massage has had on individuals and their wellness journey for centuries, and we want to bring that same experience to you.


With its roots in Ayurveda, massage therapy has been an integral part of healing sciences throughout ancient and modern history. We believe that a deeper connection between mind, body, and spirit brings about true holistic healing, and our goal at New Mexico School of Massage is to bring the traditional roots of massage therapy into modern healing practices.

The next time you visit this page, it'll be home to the Southwest’s newest space for healing, connecting, and empowering our community. The New Mexico School of Massage will be launching its inaugural training program January 2022. 

We can’t wait to meet you!

Who Are We

Inspired by Vasant Lad


As the founder and director of The Ayurvedic Institute, Vasant Lad has worked tirelessly for the last 40 years to bring the deep insights and transformative power of Ayurveda to the West. His passion for healing has garnered him respect throughout the world, and he is considered the premiere authority on Ayurveda outside of India. His numerous books have been translated into over 20 languages and have sold over 700,000 copies in the US alone. His teachings range from introductory courses in Ayurveda and yoga to advanced clinical pathology immersion and include hands on classical therapies.

Dr. Susan Salvo 

Director of Education

Dr. Susan is a practicing massage therapist with over 35 years of experience, and has also written two best-selling massage textbooks and contributed to many other publications. She teaches prolifically, and learns just as prolifically: with a bachelors and doctorate in education, and a masters in instructional technology, she seeks knowledge just as much as she shares it. In her words, her primary teaching goals are to increase quality of client care, expand therapeutic treatment options, and to create an educational environment of discovery and engagement. A long-time chartered member of the Louisiana AMTA, she was awarded Member of the Year in 1989 and a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003.
