A Maine Massage School

Serving the Greater Maine Area


Your Director: Suzanne Philp, LMT
Owner and Director of TBLC
Licensed Massage Therapist

Welcome to the Therapeutic Bodywork Learning Center (TBLC) website. Whoever you are and however your journey has brought you here, if you’re looking for a quality education leading to a career in Therapeutic Massage, you’ve come to the right place.

After a long career in Social Services I decided to pursue my lifelong curiosity and innate passion for healing touch. I graduated from TBLC in 2010, got my Maine Massage Therapy license, and built a busy massage practice. While in school I discovered that I really loved being in school, so I went back and became a teacher. And in January of 2022 I bought the school.

Perhaps, like me, you have had a lifelong interest and curiosity about how massage can sooth the mind and calm the body. Maybe you have received massage as part of your own healing process. Or maybe you’ve seen others grow and thrive in a career as a Licensed Massage Therapist.

Whatever brings you here, you’ve come at the right time. The demand for massage is growing in our communities and is predicted to continue to grow in the coming years.

I look forward to answering your questions and learning about what brings you to explore this exciting and rewarding career. Be in touch!
