Dr. Thomas F. Ahern, Jr. is the owner and instructor at Ahern Massage School, a massage therapy institute that teaches massage as a form of healing. Dr. Ahern teaches, first and foremost, compassion, because the key to a successful massage therapist is someone who can work from your heart.

At Ahern Massage School, students will lean several different types of massage, plus Reiki training and preparation for state and national examination. Ahern teaches Usui Reiki, which means that students can receive Reiki I training and must wait at least three months to receive Reiki II training. The intensive program at Ahern means that students live, breathe, and sleep massage for 200 hours over a 15-day period. Classes are intensive and hands-on, to fully immerse the student in the art of massage and develop great facilitators.

Dr. Ahern is devoted to massage, healing and helping others. He is active in the community and dedicated to his students. He believes so fully in massage that he even offers a karma deal for those unable to pay for the course, allowing them to attend for a small fee under the promise that they will then provide another person with the same education at a later date. This is only one of the ways that Dr. Ahern makes sure that the positivity of massage continues.
