It goes without saying that massage therapists are in high demand. If you’re considering enrolling in massage therapy school, it may interest you that massage therapists are needed even in the White House.

Featured Faculty & Staff: Sarah Moshier

Meet Sarah Moshier, LMT, MSW, MA, Finger Lakes School of Massage Featured Faculty for January! She actually graduated from FLSM in 2007 and returned in 2015 to work as an admissions guide. Sarah was originally inspired to attend massage school after receiving a massage as a student in a dual Master’s degree program in Social Work and Social Science at the University at Albany/Binghamton University. Bodywork seemed like the perfect compliment to social work and would allow her to provide a truly holistic approach to wellness.
