Leading Massage Schools in Massachusetts and Maine

Your education is an important investment in your future that will change your life forever.

As a massage therapist, you get to do work that is extremely satisfying and rewarding. You work in attractive settings that are healthy and positive, helping people to feel better and getting paid to do what you love.

Based on years of research and input from major spas and salons, the esthetics program prepares you for the professional exams needed for licensure and gives you the skills and knowledge that are in demand in spas and clinics.

A career in cosmetology lets you develop your creativity, both artistically and professionally. Whether you work in a salon or spa, for a product company, in the entertainment field or have your own business, it's whatever you want to make it.

Barbering is a fast growing and exciting career that combines your talent for style with your love of community. Barbering has a rich history and has long been regarded as a skilled profession, offering an interesting and creative work environment.

Manicuring is about more than being a Nail Tech. It's about making people feel special through pampering and nail art. Whether it's your primary service, your specialty or an addition to other skills you already have, it's both fun and valuable for your career.

The 600-hour Teacher Training for Cosmetology is offered multiple times throughout the year. To qualify for the program you must be a licensed cosmetologist in the State of Maine and have an interview with both Admissions and the Director at the school.

Polarity Therapy is the next level of healing that works with the energy fields of the body to create core, energetic health that feeds the rest of your systems. Designed for pioneers in the wellness industry, the work is transformative and can be added to all other practices.

Why Choose Spa Tech?

Whether you are interested in massage, esthetics, polarity, cosmetology, barbering or nail tech, a career helping people to look and feel their best is life changing. Unlike sitting behind a desk connected to phones and computers or working in retail or hospitality, careers in the massage, esthetics and cosmetology industries are gratifying on many levels. In addition to working in fun and creative environments with people who share your interests, you also have the ability to directly affect your pay by your performance. And if you want to open your own business, that's a realistic option. But the best part is that your clients appreciate what you do.

Learning Is Easy When It's What Interests You!

Learning to take your creativity and passion to the next level is at the core of your education. As many students realize, it’s much easier to succeed when you study what you love. And being with like minded students and teachers is like finding your tribe. It changes everything. If you are passionate about massage therapy, going to the massage school is like being on vacation. Not only do you learn things that interest you, but you also get several massages a week as part of your training. If you love skincare, makeup and spa treatments, the esthetics school teaches you the science of skincare and makeup as well as the experience of doing skincare sessions, makeup and spa treatments on each other and the public. And if you love hair and nails, the beauty school gives you the science, technique and practice to be a successful cosmetology professional.
