WNWSM offers two exclusive massage programs dedicated to creating highly skilled and qualified massage therapists. Our goal is to provide the best tools and curriculum, with extensive hands on practice, to prepare for your career in massage therapy and more.
WHO ARE WE?
Becky West, LMT
Becky West has a dream to recreate the inspirational massage schools that helped form her career as a Licensed Massage Therapist.
While there is no way to duplicate Brian Utting School of Massage or Brenneke, there is a way to capture the heart and soul of massage therapy training. West by Northwest School of Massage (WNWSM) is focused on quality education, not the speed of graduation!
WNWSM was born in October 2017 with this vision and God's grace. Our goal is to train confident massage therapists who have a leg up on others due to the extensive training they receive here. We support LMT's with Continuing Education classes monthly, as well as a Lotion and Oil Retail Bar for therapists to have a resource close to their practice.
Becky has primarily practiced injury treatment and spa work since 2004 while raising babies and running businesses. As her next chapter unfolds, she has a goal to unite those with a gift in healing touch, equip students with the highest level instructors and let them soar into the world of Massage Therapy.
Since 1996, Leah Jirsa has been practicing massage in WA state. She has extensive knowledge in treatment, spa and mobile massage.
Currently, she owns her own practice and has a loving, supportive family in Snohomish County.
Her passion for bodywork has led her to teaching. With uplifting support, active listening and beyond kindness she will help you in the journey in becoming the best version of an L.M.T. you can be.
