The village was renamed Unionville after the Revolutionary War. A railroad station was built here in 1847, and a post office established in 1851. The village was finally named Hawthorne in honor of Rose Hawthorne, the founder of the Rosary Hill Home, where patients suffering from incurable cancer were cared for.

  • Massage Therapy

At FLSM, we really, really love what we do. We believe in the power of bodywork because, well, because we've seen it work. And we also believe in our students and our graduates, because hey, authentic passion is contagious, and our students demonstrate the same affection for the field of massage therapy that we do.

History

 

FLSM opened its first campus, in Ithaca, in 1994. Due to the success of that campus and continued projected growth in the field of massage therapy, we opened our second campus, in Mount Kisco, in 2008.

 

We are proud to say that Finger Lakes School of Massage has produced, and continues to produce, well-trained, passionate, dedicated, and satisfied graduates that embody the spirit of trust, cooperation and integrity that FLSM prides itself on.
