More Student Success Stories

Alicia Vaughn | Ontario Campus

I’ve known for a large part of my life that I wanted a career that could positively affect people on a personal level, but wasn’t sure how. After my experience throughout the core and advanced programs, I can safely say I’ve found my community and my calling. What I learned over the course of both programs resonated with me and the way that I want to help people, and while some parts were challenging, I’m so glad I saw it through. I’m truly happy being a Neuromuscular Massage Therapist—and I would never have known that without NHI.

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.

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.

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!

Become A Qualified Massage Therapist & Bodyworker

The Massage Therapy Training Program at National Holistic Institute (NHI) provides hands-on training, practical experience and industry support you need to become a qualified and confident bodyworker.

Real World Training

Massage is unquestionably a hands-on field, and at NHI we believe that’s how it should be taught. As a student in our program you’ll work on the public, under the guidance of licensed instructors, in our on-campus clinics. You’ll feel comfortable and fully prepared to transition from being a student to working as a massage therapy professional after gaining so much direct, real world experience before you graduate.

Convenient Morning, Afternoon & Evening Schedules

This program is designed to fit the needs of busy adult learners. We understand the lives our students lead, and how important it is to have balance that is why we offer a hybrid learning environment with classes online and on-campus. Many students are working, taking care of family and/or juggling other commitments while they attend school. Choose the schedule that best fits your lifestyle.

The full-time program can be completed in 8 months.
The part-time program can be completed in 10 months or 12 months.

Get Prepared for California State Certification

Upon completion of this program, graduates are fully prepared and qualified to take the MBLEX exam and apply for California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) Certification.

After completing 500 hours of the program, you’ll be eligible to begin the application process for CAMTC certification. Once you’re certified you can work in the massage therapy field. If you become certified before graduating the program, you can begin working while you finish your training.
