About our School & Staff

ACE School of Massage Therapy

began as a private practice twelve years ago when Curt Thomas graduated from Massage Therapy school. His vision has always been to provide the best possible assistance to everyone with an interest in massage. Curt has had this vision since the time he decided to become a massage therapist. He has a very successful private practice with many regular clients who will gratefully attest to his knowledge of the field. Within the realms of his practice, he has educated not only his clients but also the general public by providing information at job fairs and career days at area schools and businesses.

Private practice grew into a Continuing Education school that has been a success since its inception. ACE School of Massage Therapy is dedicated to providing its students with instruction that will help you to start a successful business of your own. Along with the state requirements, we will teach you how to communicate with your client in order to determine their specific situations, and the therapy that best suits their needs. We will teach you to recognize both common and uncommon health issues that you will observe regularly in your practice. We will show you how to successfully treat these issues, with plenty of hands on practice. ACE is approved and regulated by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
