Bellevue Massage School gets new owner


The owner of Bellevue-based luxury Yuan Spa, Z Zhang, has acquired Bellevue Massage School.

“I am thrilled to not only be a part of Bellevue Massage School,” said Z Zhang, owner and founder of Yuan Spa, “but also to now be able to oversee the direction of the school as well. I have always had a vested interest in furthering the direction of the ‘mind, body, wellness’ movement in terms of education and this allows me to do just that.”

Zhang will work closely with Dana Pellegrini, Bellevue Massage School’s newly appointed director, who has a long history with the school since 2001.

Bellevue Massage School offers students both a traditional program and a bilingual program, with enrollment beginning June 16 for both classes. Students can begin a comprehensive licensing program that exceeds the Washington State requirements to become a licensed massage practitioner (LMP).

Through a partnership with Bastyr University created by Pellegrini, Bellevue Massage School offers students, who have met academic prerequisites, an opportunity to participate in a summer massage intensive program designed to prepare them for state licensing.

Additionally, Bellevue Massage School has a student clinic, with massage offered at a reduced rate. Information is available online at or by calling 425-641-3409.
