My name is John Caguin, and I am the Outreach Manager for National Holistic Institute. You may have met me in your classroom, career center, or college fair. I am a fourth generation massage therapist, and a second generation graduate of NHI’s Massage Therapy School.

NHI has seven campuses throughout the state, making it a true California college for massage therapy. Each massage therapy school at NHI’s seven campuses has a unique culture informed not only by our staff and students, but by the communities surrounding them.
