About Us

Rebecca Dragseth was encouraged by many supporters to start teaching them how to massage.  She decided to investigate and the school was born in 2007. TCSM currently shares a building with Ashtanga Yoga School.

The vision for TCSM was to create a school that would flourish in an educational environment to enhance balance, expansion, and connection.  Balance and expansion in mind (thoughts), body, and spirit.

Connecting with healers, teachers, and health advocates allows TCSM enjoyment in the development of this compassionate and supportive community.

The Instructors

Teachers at Therapeutic Connections School of Massage teach the classes with a passion for detail, simplicity and connecting massage therapy with real-life situations that students can understand. Building confidence, with practice, is the key to massage success and this is the foundation of instruction at TCSM.

Our Mission

Therapeutic Connections School of Massage offers a program that allows students to be creative in their independent expression because their knowledge and understanding is built on a solid foundation of the core skills necessary for effective massage therapy.


Therapeutic Connections School of Massage is located near to the beautiful Manito Park in Spokane, Washington. In a quiet neighborhood, the TCSM classroom is in a shared building with Ashtanga Yoga School. Centrally located, students can easily access the school from downtown Spokane off I-90.
