The Downeast School of Massage is located on 95 acres, two miles from US Route One on Route 220 North in the rural community of Waldoboro, Maine. Midway up the coast (this is called “Downeast” in Maine), the school is about 1¼ hours north of Portland and 25 minutes south of Camden. The scenic coastline provides endless natural wonders to explore. Summer promises hiking, camping, boating, swimming, sailing, biking, etc., whereas skiing (XC and downhill), skating, ice-fishing, and snowshoeing are a few of the popular winter sports. The country atmosphere and plentiful wildlife provide a serene environment for learning and growth.
