Video testimonial from a student at the Central Massachusetts School of Massage:
The Central Mass School was founded in 1970 by John R. St. Jacques, RMT. Before the school, Mr. St. Jacques had a massage practice at his home, The Pain-Free Clinic. The first classes of CMS were held in his home, where everyone who came had a friendly, warm greeting.
In 1998, Mr. St. Jacques's son Greg became the school's director, and in 2001, Mr. St. Jacques retired from practice.
