There are so many different pathways into choosing which field of massage therapy you would like to enter into. I had two interviews in one week and it was just exciting to know, “oh, which job can I choose from?” I was really able to get right into the massage field and get hired right away.

I am a recent graduate of the NMT program. NHI has been the most amazing experience of my life and it’s been the best decision of my life. Since taking this program, my clientele have come to me and said, “I’ve never had an experience like this in my life.” This program will take you beyond the competency of being a massage therapist to a high knowledge of knowing more than just massage.

The people at NHI have brought me to a place where I believe in myself. I walked into the door and I immediately felt like I was at home. NHI has given me the opportunity to find work that I love.

I am an architect and I decided to explore massage therapy as an alternative to spending eight hours a day at a desk. Every class was amazing and I loved the AVK teaching method that is used at NHI which is learning by hearing, seeing and doing, it really helped make the curriculum easy to learn because we got the information in so many different ways.

NHI had a full curriculum that I really enjoyed. I also really loved the campus – the campus was just beautiful. Because of my education at NHI, I was able to not only get a job as a massage therapist, but I actually ended up buying a spa right before I graduated. I had no intention of buying a spa but because the previous owner was looking to sell it and she knew I went to NHI she decided that I would be a good fit to purchase her spa.

I feel a lot more happier and content with myself. I actually love waking up in the morning and going to work and having that interaction with my clients and seeing the vast improvements in their lives. It’s really rewarding.

One of the great things about going to NHI is that you get to work in the massage clinic. The clinic is something that not all massage schools have. You actually get hands on experience with the public. The great thing about being a student at NHI is that you can actually get work before you even graduate. I was just offered a position at Burke Williams in West Hollywood. All of the things that I have learned at NHI and the great opportunities I received have really prepared me for the real world.

I graduated from aesthetic school and I wanted to accentuate my business so I thought about massage therapy. After searching online for massage therapy schools NHI popped up. I gave them a call and set up a tour. I went to the school and said wow the people here are wonderful. Walking into this place felt like home, right then and there I knew that this was the place I needed to be, and this was the school I needed to go to.

Before NHI, I was doing the mom thing…feeling very safe and comfortable. Going to NHI was one of the best decisions I have made in a long time. I chose NHI because of what they offered, not just learning the skill of massage but also learning marketing skills, and  business skills. I now have my own practice with a team of five massage therapists.

I’m originally from St.Louis, Missouri and I moved all the way to California to start the program at NHI. I researched the school beforehand and it looked great. I really wanted a well rounded education that NHI offered. At NHI, I made really great relationships with my mentors. I chose massage therapy because you can go in so many different directions and now I’m completely supporting myself through massage therapy.

What I love about NHI is that they offer a really great core program. The core program is the foundation of what you will grow into and become as a massage therapist, and it covers all of the things that you really need to know and be aware of as a massage therapist. They also have a 450 hour program and that is what really helped me get a leg up in the industry.

When I talk to my current clients I always tell them that I feel like I hit the jack pot by coming to NHI.
