As an integral part of our educational program, students provide massage treatments to the public in a comfortable, semi-private clinic environment. Our clients receive quality massages at affordable prices; at the same time, our students gain valuable and practical experience in providing massage to people from all walks of life. The Massage Clinic provides students with an excellent opportunity to integrate their clinical skills with their technical and academic training, and promotes professionalism through interaction with the general public.
Clinic time is 9am-7pm Mon-Sat. (clinic hours change periodically, depending on students schedules). All services, by students or graduates, are by appointment only. As a courtesy, please give us at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. There are people on the waiting list who would appreciate your space, and no-shows result in students missing valuable practice time.

I've gone to many different locations for a massage throughout Orange County, and AIMT, by far, has been my favorite! The therapists here really listen and care - they customize the massage just for you and your needs. Not to mention that the price is unbeatable. 5 stars!
Jennifer N. - Tustin, CA
I have been coming to AIMT for over ten years. I love this place and was I can't lie hesistant about writing a review because it has been my little secret for over ten years now. But the people are so friendly that I had no choice. The massages are excellent, the staff is great, and the prices are unbelievable. So if you or a friend need a maasage call AIMT you won't be disappointed.
Ted C. - Newport Beach, CA
I haven't visited AIMT for quite a while. However, when I visited before I did receive a very good massage. I didn't know quite what to expect since I hadn't been here for over several years. The gentleman (Calvin) who I had made an appointment with was very polite and very professional. The Therapist was incredibly fantastic. I think her name was Kristy, and she was probably one of the best Therapists I've ever had, student or professional. She was also very polite, kind and thorough. I was so impressed that I scheduled another massage for 2 weeks from that date. It was obvious that Kristy had done massages before, and if she is any indication of what type of students they have here, I'll be coming here for massages on a regular basis. What a delightful surprise. I am completely and totally satisfied with the service and the way I was treated and look forward to my next visit. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a great massage to come here. I was so impressed I am buying a gift certificate for my daughter in law. Thank you so much for providing great service at a fantastic price.
Michael L. - Foothill Ranch, CA
This place is truly a hidden gem! The location is in a nice and quiet place in Santa Ana their is always parking lol the staff is really friendly as well! The massage therapist are students who are training to become licensed massage therapist. They go above and beyond to give you the best massage for YOU... They actually go out of their way to meet you before and after the massage not to mention you talk about what you want to have worked on before getting started on your massage so you get exactly what you want. I think it's amazing that they take time to listen to your needs and make sure you have a great massage. Very professional! They always have great and LOW prices you get a quality massage by students who are taking a year long course to become professionals at this!!!!!!!! You get the top of the line massage you desire without having to pay $100... You also get your own ROOM so it's total PRIVACY their is also dim lighting music and comfy atmosphere. You can't beat this place support this institute and most important the MASSAGE THERAPIST STUDENT!!!! You will thank me later for this :)
Karina C. - Costa Mesa, CA
I came to this place after running the Tinker Bell half marathon. It was wonderful! A quality massage for a good price! Pretty comparable to the few massages I had before. My masseuse focused on my legs and back like I asked and I think it definitely helped ease any soreness I might have had the following days. Definitely recommend AIMT and will come here again when I'm in the area.
Cassie B. - Glendale, CA
My husband and I have been going to AIMT for years. We have had massages at many 5 star hotels as well as spas. However, nothing in comparison to what we get at AIMT. My massage therapist Mark is AMAZING. I asked for a relaxation massage and that is exactly what I received. A lot of massage therapist like to strike up conversations. I do not pay for conversation I pay to relax and enjoy my massage. The only conversation was whether or not the pressure was ok. Which is exactly what I like. The atmosphere is so relaxing as well. In fact.. I fell asleep. The price of an hour massage is amazing and so affordable I can have one every week. I would highly recommend AIMT to anyone looking for a great massage. It's just hard to believe this is a school. The experience will leave you for wanting more.
Denyce F. - Lake Forest, CA
These guys are awesome! Never had a bad massage, and always super attentive. I've turned several friends and family on to this spot and will continue to do so... Thanks AIMT for taking the stress out!! :)
Carrie C. - Anaheim, CA
I've been to AIMT's clinic over a half dozen times and have always had a great experience. The students are well trained and professional and you can't beat the cost for a wonderful massage.
Dat V. - New York, NY
I went to AIMT for the first time a few weeks ago and had a very relaxing experience. The student was very friendly and attentive and I received a great massage, not to mention the amazing deal. I felt very happy when I left.
Ingrid A. - Manhattan, NY
Went to the massage school and had an awesome experience with Brandon . It much needed relief and they were able to accommodate my schedule. Will definitely be coming back to see them again.
Marline P. - Tustin, CA
Great massage for a great deal! Students bring great attention to detail. Very professional. Clean environment, I would definetly come back.
Jill P. - San Diego, CA
I have been here a few times now and got some of the best massages I have ever had. Could never tell that they were students. They are always attentive to my needs. I will be a regular client here.
Jon H. - Anaheim, CA
I have been visiting AIMT for over 2 months now. This is a best massage place in/around OC when you go by the cost and quality of massage. Spending just $25 gets you a full 50 minute massage.
All the masseuse students are professional and well trained. They offer best quality and legit massage. They ask questions to understand on the type of massage that one needs and also work on your pain areas.
Try once and am sure you will keep coming to this place.
Shaun A. - Irvine, CA
Very good massage by one of their students, she was very professional and did a great job. The place is functional and clean but a bit difficult to find. The only negative thing I could say about his institute is that because of their popularity sometimes it could be hard to get an appointment when you want it but they were very accommodating.
Adolfo S. - Irvine, CA
Alysa was wonderful -- friendly with nice, firm, warm hands-- and so were the staff! The only issue I had was in making my reservation. It took a couple months in order to get an appointment on a Saturday. Also, they handle reservations by phone rather than an online system.
You have the option to have the massage over your clothes. However, my experience was better with skin-to-skin contact for at least back, legs, and arms.
Great deal with or without the Groupon! I will be back!
Mari L. - Orange, CA
1st time here with a groupon deal and will be back. My husband and i saw Alisha and Diego. Their technique was on point. Was a very relaxing experience. They constantly checked with us about appropriate pressure and comfort which was nice.
They do accept tips , many schools dont, and i didnt know but luckily we had some cash.
Calvin who scheduled our appointments, checked us in, and gave us feedback cards to fill out at the end of the servive was really personable and welcoming.
When scheduling We asked to be in a private room together so when we got there they had converted a classroom into a massage area so we could be comfortable. Thay was really nice that they did that.
They also called the day before to remind us and confirm the appointment which was nice.
Rocky S. - Santa Ana, CA
I purchased 3 Groupon delas for AIMT and I was very pleased with their services. Their staff is extremely professional and their therapists are well trained on the latest massage therapy techniques. Of the 3 times I visited I saw 2 different therapists. I was impressed with the attention to detail the therapists took in making sure I was comfortable and the appropriate amount of pressure was applied during my massage. The only drawback was it was difficult to get in for an appointment as they are very busy and booked up, but they will always try to work with your schedule. I would recommend this place to any of my friends.
Leiana S. - Capistrano Beach, CA
Excellent place. Friendly staff and great (almost perfect) atmosphere when you get in your room. Nice music, too.
Basically, if you come here, you'll get some of the best students around giving you the most relaxing time (it felt like forever, which is a good thing! It was probably only 20 minutes or so, not sure.)
I had the friendliest masseuse ever; she was a great talk.
Go to this place if you want to relax and get the perfect message.
Anthony D. - Newport Beach, CA
I've been meaning to write a review for AIMT for awhile now. I wanted to have a track record to report on before writing a review.
My fiancé can be a little challenging to buy presents for. So instead of giving him a thing which would be more clutter in the house, I decided to give him an experience, a couple's massage! We loved it. We came back again for a time. They shut down for a few weeks over the Christmas holiday, and it fell off of our radar screen.
Then his birthday rolled back round again, so we came back again.
The massages are great. They are being given by trained students. I've had massages by different students, and all of them have been really good.
I'm going regularly now. I have a muscle which is chronically tight, so it's taking awhile to get better. Now at the end of the massage, the student is doing some stretches which is giving me incrementally increased range of motion.
They also offer gift certificates. Might be some of the gifts we give.
Massages are offered early evening and late morning - early afternoon Sundays.
Great Yelp checkin deal.
Definitely returning here again and again.
Bring cash both for paying as well as tipping your student massage therapist.
April B. - Orange, CA
As a client, I have been getting massages here for years. Although students graduate, Greta always makes sure your connected with a student that will be the best for you. Professional, helpful, understanding and very knowledgeable. I will always return! The staff and students are the best!!
Alison W. - Jackson, TN
If you get a chance, get a massage from Tasos. He is amazing! 50 minutes, incredibly relaxing and I left with my back in better shape than I can last remember. Plus only $25?! That's unbeatable.
Laik F. - Irvine, CA
I am giving it 5 stars for the good price and the quality of the service. I had to wait a little for the room to free up which I personally do not mind. They asked me a bit about what I wanted and expected today. They asked what my profession is which is a personal trainer. From their, the student, T, was able to assume and base some questions for me to see if anything was tense or tight. I told him my lower back and my neck area. He did a good job of applying pressure and extra focus on those areas. Felt as good as any other professional massage I have ever got but felt like he was putting more effort and care into his practice.
The students are still learning and have room to improve I can base from my one time experience yet still five stars because it exceed my expectations and based off the value it was well worth it. I will be definitely be coming hopefully once a month.
I also recommend calling way ahead of time to schedule a massage at a time that works best for you.
Jared C. - Hacienda Heights, CA
This place is excellent.....relaxing, low key, accommodating, affordable, friendly, and the quality of the massages are excellent. I consider this place a hidden gem.
Cher H. - Santa Ana, CA
Wow!!! This was my First Time coming to AIMT'S Clinic. I was very Impressed with Everything there. I am a Big Fan of massages & have them often.
Greta was so Helpful & Welcoming to me on the phone.
Then Nicole, my Massage Therapist,was Absolutely Wonderful! She was Well Trained, Professional,Friendly & Used Perfect Pressure. I Enjoyed it So Much that I caught myself Snoring, Being So Relaxed. I will Definitely Return & Highly Recommend it.
Where can you get That Quality of a Massage for that Little Money?
It truly is One of the Best Kept Secrets Around.
PS. The Director was also Very welcoming, Friendly & Professional.
I can't wait to Return for My Next Massage.
Do Yourself a Pampered Favor & Check it Out Yourself!
Sincerely , Debby
Debby W. - Long Beach, CA
I have been here a total of 3 times and I've received excellent service every time. The Asian man that's normally the receptionist has great customer service and always so attentive. My boyfriend got a massage by Jose and he was absolutely great! I got a massage by Rebecca and she was awesome. They have great technique and just the right amount of pressure. I've always feel comfortable communicating my needs. I won't get massaged anywhere else but here.
Yvette N. - Westminster, CA
This is definitely a place I would recommend. Madison was my therapist and was very professional. She used the right amount of pressure and asked throughout the session if she was using the right amount. And it's only $25.00 for a 55 minute session. $20 for 1st time Yelp checkin.
Robert T. - Orange, CA
Very professional and super clean! Everyone here is super friendly and helpful- I am so happy that my fiancee and I moved back to Orange County, so I can start coming here again!
Ashley I. - Anaheim, CA
It is a massage school. It is walking distance from my office. I go there once a week. Full body massage cost only $25. Leslie has golden hand. Will recommend to friends and family!
Mango T. - Santa Ana, CA
I couldn't wait to write this. I'm currently sitting in my car in the parking lot outside all oiled up and slimy!
I googled prenatal massage as I'm 36 weeks pregnant and this is the first place that came up. I went to beauty school, so I can completely appreciate a student and their education all while learning on the public. Although, I'm pretty sure Shanna isn't a student. I mean, OH MY GODDDDD. I have never had a full body massage this good. Not even because I'm pregnant! I've just never been so relaxed ever.
I'm doing weekly doctors appointments so realistically that's the only thing that stopped me from booking an appointment for next week. Once I get the okay, I intend to come back until I pop a baby out!
This entire place is great. Shanna is AMAZING, I hope to be able to follow her throughout her career as a massage therapist, thank you so much Shanna! Thank you for putting this baby to sleep for an hour as well! She's wiggled a little here and there, but I think for the most part, she's as relaxed as mom!
Leslie R. - Irvine, CA
My husband and I love coming to AIMT. They are very professional and affordable! Very relaxing and the students are open to any suggestions for improvement. They have awesome specials so be sure to sign up for their emails.
Stella H. - Fullerton, CA
This place is absolutely fantastic. I have been to multiple massage parlors, including other schools and this was one of the top. Students are great and ambience perfect.
Nicole F. - Orange, CA
You could spend $100 or more and get a massage or come here for less than $40 and get students eager to learn and please their clients. Why go anywhere else. The staff is great and the students are strong and knowledgeable. Leave your stress at home and come here.
Addison M. - Anaheim, CA
David, my masseur, was exceptionally skilled. He understood my pain points and was able to deliver the massage accordingly. Most relaxing massage I've ever received. I really thank David for his knowledge and pleasant personality.
Chhavi V. - Alhambra, CA
I have been here twice and I had an excellent experience! The massage and staff are great! I would recommend it to anyone that wants great and affordable massage! It is a place to go!
Rajko M. - Placentia, CA
I guess this best kept secret is no secret anymore. I've been here three times, and I've never been disappointed. For $25 you get a full body massage given by a student. Note that a student needs to finish 3 months of classes first even before they can have the clinical practice, i.e., massage therapy service. After the massage, you even get to rate them (massage pressure, draping, temperature, music, etc..). This is my go-to place now for my massage. It's like getting a massage from a professional BW therapist! (except of course, there's no spa in the premises. LOL! I heard that a lot of the BW massage therapists graduated from this school.) So I just go to my gym or BW to use the day spa before or after I get my massage here. I just wish that they're open on Sundays. Hopefully, I can request and get the same student therapist each time. Jodie - she's awesome!
Ramona V. - La Palma, CA
I just had my first 50 minute massage here. The massage was really really good, very relaxing and the perfect amount t of pressure. The student Geo was very intuitive and professional. It was so good I already booked my next appointment.
S H. - Fullerton, CA
I will be a regular here. This is a very clean massage place. Everyone is extremely helpful. I can see myself coming here every week
Yuqi J. - Las Vegas, NV
I have been coming to this massage school for over three years and can hands-down say that each time only do I get a professional amazing massage treated like a client and not a guinea pig as I have other schools period each student I've ever had has not hesitated to reach out to the teacher as necessary, has listened my needs and gone the extra mile to make sure that this plus size woman is comfortable.
