Accreditation & Approvals

Comta Seal

COMMISSION on
MASSAGE THERAPY ACCREDITATION

MSSM has been accredited by COMTA since¬†2005 — and is the first school in West Virginia to have achieved this status. This voluntary process requires a school to demonstrate its ongoing compliance with a rigorous set of standards that represent a high level of accountability. There are approximately¬†100 massage schools in the U.S. and Canada that have earned COMTA accreditation.

COMTA is the only accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education that is dedicated to the massage therapy field. MSSM’s commitment to upholding COMTA’s standards assures that students receive quality education, and the public receives quality massage services from its graduates.
