Date:7/30/2013

Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

The University of Western States (UWS), a leader in the education of health care professionals, has been granted initial programmatic accreditation for its massage therapy program by the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA). COMTA is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a specialized accrediting agency to ensure quality education in massage therapy programs.

“This achievement is a milestone in the university’s 109-year history,” said UWS provost Laura Lamm, DC. “Currently only 85 of the roughly 1,400 massage therapy schools in the U.S. are accredited by COMTA. This recognition demonstrates our commitment to ensure that the UWS massage program standards meet the national quality standards set forth by COMTA.”

UWS is one of three massage therapy schools in Oregon to receive accreditation through COMTA.
