MESA, AZ (JUNE 15, 2016) – ASIS (Arizona School of Integrative Studies) is thrilled to announce the grand opening of its new campus in majestic Mesa. The Mesa campus makes the fourth campus for ASIS, which has established campuses in Tucson, Flagstaff and Prescott.
ASIS Co-Director and Co-Founder, Joseph Rongo, shares his delight over the new campus: “We are excited that our new home is right on Main Street, just steps from the Valley Metro Light Rail, making it both economical and convenient for our commuter students and Student Clinic clients; it also provides an ecologically-conscious means of commuting to and from school or the Clinic. We are eager to get started in Mesa doing what we’ve done best for more than 20 years—training outstanding massage therapists who are positive contributors to the healthcare community.”
Located a mere twenty minutes from Downtown Phoenix, Mesa is the third-largest city in Arizona, and it is set in a lively urban setting. Students can explore the Mesa Grande ruins, catch Major League Baseball spring training camps, hike the Superstition Mountains, or get wet at a nearby waterpark; there’s always something to do. Mesa’s vibrant, historic up-and-coming Downtown neighborhood also features an upscale performing arts venue, the Mesa Arts Center; and a plethora of eateries, bars and coffee houses for students to enjoy.
ASIS offers both full and part-time programs for students interested in becoming massage therapists—a career that the US Department of Labor states is growing faster on average than any other career. The 750-hour program includes classroom work as well as participation in the Student Clinic for hands-on training and to meet licensure requirements. Students who complete the certification program graduate as state-licensed massage therapists.

Joseph’s wife, ASIS Co-Founder and Co-Director, Jamie Rongo, is equally elated about the new campus. “After having great success with our other three urban campuses, Joseph and I decided we wanted to open our next school in the heart of downtown Mesa,” says Jamie.
“We had scouted several cities around the Phoenix area, and simply fell in love with Mesa because of its atmosphere of growth and inclusivity. We feel the community spirit of this vibrant and burgeoning city parallels the attitude and philosophy of ASIS Massage Education, and provides a perfect canvas for our students and new campus to thrive,” she adds.
