About Blue Sky School of Professional
Massage & Therapeutic Bodywork

Our Mission

Blue Sky was born out of a desire to cre­ate a sus­tain­able future for our world. Our pri­ma­ry focus is on facil­i­tat­ing phys­i­cal, spir­i­tu­al, and emo­tion­al well-being.

Blue Sky’s holis­tic approach to mas­sage inte­grates well­ness and nutri­tion­al train­ing through­out the pro­gram. We empha­size health-care and self-care tech­niques, styles, and philoso­phies to help each per­son and their fam­i­ly to devel­op opti­mal health with­in their own bound­aries.

Through a comprehensive course of study, Blue Sky strives to:

  • Grad­u­ate mas­sage ther­a­pists who real­ly care about peo­ple, tal­ent­ed ther­a­pists with the per­spec­tive to prac­tice the heal­ing art of mas­sage with opti­mal results for their clients, while receiv­ing a true sense of ful­fill­ment.
  • Pro­vide a com­pre­hen­sive edu­ca­tion and expe­ri­ence in tra­di­tion­al ther­a­peu­tic body­work tech­niques cou­pled with train­ing in a wide range of addi­tion­al treat­ment modal­i­ties.
  • Reach out and touch the com­mu­ni­ty through edu­ca­tion­al oppor­tu­ni­ties and mas­sage ser­vices.

Our History & Facilities

Blue Sky was found­ed by Blue Sky Edu­ca­tion­al Foun­da­tion in 1985.  Achieve Inc., d.b.a. Blue Sky School of Pro­fes­sion­al Mas­sage & Ther­a­peu­tic Body­work took over own­er­ship of the school from the Foun­da­tion in Octo­ber 2015.

Professional Massage Therapy Programs

Blue Sky School of Pro­fes­sion­al Mas­sage & Ther­a­peu­tic Body­work has been offer­ing a pro­fes­sion­al mas­sage ther­a­py pro­gram since 1985. Blue Sky offers a spe­cial­ty track with a min­i­mum of 850 clock hours. Track offer­ing based on enroll­ment. Require­ments in oth­er states may dif­fer, infor­ma­tion on spe­cif­ic states can be pro­vid­ed at time of inter­view or upon request.

Blue Sky is also approved by the Depart­ment of Safe­ty & Pro­fes­sion­al Ser­vices Wis­con­sin Edu­ca­tion­al Approval Pro­gram and Approved for vet­er­ans’ edu­ca­tion ben­e­fits (GI Bill) by the Wis­con­sin State Approv­ing Agency for those that qual­i­fy and we are a NCBTMB Assigned School and AMTA School Mem­ber.  We vol­un­tar­i­ly with­drew from being nation­al­ly insti­tu­tion­al­ly accred­it­ed and vol­un­tar­i­ly with­drew from offer­ing Fed­er­al Finan­cial Aid.  The amount of paper­work, addi­tion­al costs and over­all lack of ben­e­fit to the stu­dent was the dri­ving forces behind that deci­sion.  To clar­i­fy: In the State of Wis­con­sin, for a stu­dent to be able to qual­i­fy to sit for the State and Nation­al exams, a school does not need to be nation­al­ly accred­it­ed, they need to be Approved by the Wis­con­sin Depart­ment of Safe­ty & Pro­fes­sion­al Ser­vices Edu­ca­tion­al Approval Pro­gram (WEAP). Blue Sky IS approved by WEAP.  This dis­tinc­tion between accred­it­ed and being approved is often mis­un­der­stood in the State of WI, do not hes­i­tate to ask ques­tions.  If you plan to leave the State of WI, oth­er states require­ments dif­fer, some dras­ti­cal­ly. It is vital to check those states pri­or to enrolling.  We rec­om­mend tak­ing a look at AMBP https://www.abmp.com/practitioners/state-requirements.

Also in the State of Wis­con­sin, mas­sage stu­dents must pass their State and Nation­al exams as a pre­req­ui­site of grad­u­a­tion.

Blue Sky’s main school loca­tion is in Grafton, WI with a satel­lite loca­tion in Green Bay, WI.  (for a lim­it­ed time Blue Sky offered an aux­il­iary class­room in Fond du Lac, WI June 2018 — May 2019).
