American Institute of Alternative Medicine - Massage Therapy


Campus Programs


The American Institute of Alternative Medicine (AIAM), formerly Massage Away, Inc. School of Therapy, was founded in September 1994. The school was an outgrowth of Massage Away, Inc., central Ohio's largest therapeutic clinic that started in 1990. The therapeutic massage clinic’s consistent growth, overwhelming customer demands for their services, and the inability to find quality massage therapists led to the creation of Massage Away, Inc. School of Therapy. The Licensed Massage Therapy Program opened with 14 students, and has since graduated over 700 students, with approximately 200 students currently enrolled in the basic program. The Tui Na Program opened in 2002 with 2 students and has graduated 4 students. There are 4 Tui Na students currently enrolled. The Professional Master's Level Acupuncture Program opened in 2002 with 11 students and has graduated its first class of seven students. There are 22 students currently enrolled.

Education is an investment in you. We recognize that education costs and finances are important factors and play an important role in your decision to attend AIAM.

Financial aid for those who qualify may help to bridge the gap between the costs of attendance and your family’s resources.

Financial aid for those who qualify is money to help you and your family cover educational expenses. It is intended to supplement, not replace, the amount you and your family can afford to pay toward the cost of attendance.

American Institute of Alternative Medicine seeks to help students who qualify find ways to finance their education. As such, there are several financing opportunities students are encouraged to explore. These include Wells Fargo, the AIAM’s interest free monthly tuition payment plan, veterans benefits, BVR or WIA payments, and need or merit based financial aid. Financial aid includes Pell Grants, Stafford and PLUS loans. The Institute also accepts MasterCard and VISA.

During the registration period for each quarter, students receive a statement of tuition and fees. Tuition deposits and fees are due one (1) week prior to class admission.
