WHAT OUR GRADUATES SAY

“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 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.
