Blossom Neidenbach | Santa Rosa Campus

The training and education I received at NHI was very thorough and I enjoyed the structure of the classes. They include the history of massage modalities in their program. It was easy to do part time while working full time. I wouldn’t have a career without NHI. NHI really helped me find something I’m passionate about and want to carry with me forever!

Zulma Portillo Martinez | Sacramento Campus

NHI has changed my personal life completely. I have met people who are generous, kind, educated and have goals in their lives. That has helped me in my life because today, I can see that whatever you set your mind to and pursue can be done. NHI helped me open doors to make my own business doing what I love most.

Reggie Reaves | Emeryville Campus

Deciding to go to NHI to learn massage therapy and start my own private practice was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. After checking out several other massage therapy schools, there was no comparison to the energy and enthusiasm I saw and felt in the NHI classroom. I owe NHI everything! I have never been happier creating a life for myself doing massage therapy.

Lisa Farnworth | Redding Campus

NHI teaches by using auditory, visual and kinesthetic methods. The information, while extensive, flows in a manner that is quite easy to learn and understand. I would highly recommend NHI to all that would like to enter the massage world. The staff and mentors are always available to meet your every need and answer your every question so upon graduation you feel like you are well prepared to enter the workforce.

Brittany "Shon" Anderson | Studio City Campus

NHI is a place where everyone is able to show up as their best and highest self and unapologetically come and be as they are. I found the environment to be accepting, compassionate and full of very passionate, knowledgeable staff. NHI provided me with many tools to help me better care for people on a much more deep and profound level with the holistic approach in the Core Massage Therapy Program. I went on to complete the Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy (ANMT) Program which gave me the ability to work smarter instead of harder.
