The 2016 Schedule is here!

You can download/print it from this link. Printed copies are also available at the school. Feel free to grab one the next time you are here. For those who have attended McKinnon in years past, you may notice a few changes we are very excited about.

Our two 150-hour foundational tracks are now called Deep Tissue Foundations and Acupressure & Shiatsu Foundations. We have introduced a new 30-hour component at the end of each track called Integration and Assessment. This course offers time to practice integrating your hands-on skills and designing full sessions, as well as a more focused look at the professional aspects of massage, in order help bring what you have learned to life.

Anatomy and Physiology: Point Location and Function and Sports will be offered as electives. Contact admin for details!

And, starting in 2016, all evening classes will begin at 6:00pm.
We are also very excited to be offering a few new workshops in the new year! Questions? Feel free to contact us! (510) 465-3488.

Volunteers NEEDED!
Massage for Vally Fire victims

Massage makes a difference! Please join our volunteer effort to provide massage to those that have been impacted and displaced by the Valley Fire.

We need volunteers to go with us to Middletown on Sunday, Oct 25th. If you can’t volunteer but would like to help, please bring items such as toiletries, socks and underwear, lightly worn or new clothes, diapers, children’s books, etc., to McKinnon and our volunteer team will deliver it on the day of our event.

If you are interested and would like more information, please contact Tami Jordan at
Thank you!!


Come visit us in Berkeley at the annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration on Monday, November 2nd, 5 – 9pm! We’ll be on Shattuck Ave. in the Gourmet Ghetto. The street will be blocked off for pedestrians and many local businesses, vendors and residents will be out celebrating! If you come through, you might see a skeleton you know… Tell your neighbors or acquaintances if you live in the Berkeley area to stop in for a little massage!
