Massage Therapist Certification and Holistic Health Education

At Ecole Setsuko Montreal and Dorval (West Island), we are more than just a learning institution; we are a vibrant community dedicated to pursuing holistic health and wellness. Our mission is deeply rooted in empowering students with comprehensive knowledge and practical skills that transcend traditional boundaries.

What Makes Ecole Setsuko different from many of the schools out there?

  1. Community and Holistic Approach: At Ecole Setsuko, we’re not just a school; we’re a community. Our holistic approach to teaching goes beyond traditional methods. We emphasize the importance of treating the body, mind, and spirit as a whole. This is a key aspect that differentiates us from others.

  2. Comprehensive Education: We provide our students with more than just massage techniques. We educate them on finding root causes, understanding how emotions and trauma can be stored in the body, and the significance of mental and emotional well-being in their practice.

  3. Business Skills: Unlike many schools, we equip our students with current marketing and advertising knowledge and essential skills for opening and running a successful business. This practical knowledge is crucial in today’s world and sets our students up for real success.

  4. Personal Attention and Mentorship: With our smaller class sizes, we ensure that each student receives personal attention. They aren’t just numbers to us; they are part of our family. We focus on mentoring and coaching them to be excellent therapists and to guide their clients toward better health and well-being.

  5. Staying Current: We constantly update our curriculum to stay aligned with the latest regulations and requirements from the Massage Therapy Associations. This ensures our students are always current and informed.

  6. Recognized by Multiple Associations such as RITMA, ACTMD and many more, You have the option of choosing the association that feels like the best fit for you and your needs. 

At Ecole Setsuko, we are committed to shaping a future where holistic health is accessible, understood, and valued. We invite you to join us on this journey of discovery, growth, and empowerment.

Great news from Ecole Setsuko! We’re expanding and adding an exciting new location on the West Island of Montreal while keeping our beloved NDG school going strong. This new spot is bigger, which means more space for all our students, awesome new workshops, and the opportunity to offer diplomas like Swedish Massage and Shiatsu more frequently. 🙌
We’re getting our new location ready and can’t wait to share photos with you in the coming week. To celebrate, we’re hosting an open house to welcome our students and introduce ourselves to our new neighbours. We’re all about community and providing quality education, just like we’ve been doing in NDG for almost 20 years.
Stay tuned for the open house dates; we’ll announce them as soon as we’re all set! We’re super excited about this new chapter and looking forward to meeting many new students.
Find us at the new address: 1564 Chem. Herron Suite 208, Dorval, QC H9S 1B7. It’s super convenient – right beside Pine Beach Train Station, a mere 30-second walk from the train, and the 211 bus stop is right in front of us! Plus, we’re just off Highway 20 with plenty of parking available.
We can’t wait to embark on this adventure with you all!
