Fund Your Dance Dreams with Massage

Massage Therapists enjoy the freedom & flexibility to pursue other passions while helping others

8 Month Massage Therapy Career Training – Full & Part Time Programs Available

You live to dance, to move, to create. You're among the brave few driven enough to dedicate your life to choreographing, directing, teaching and performing. Unfortunately, in today's world, passion isn't always enough to live on while you pursue a career in the arts.

What do you do to support yourself and fuel what moves you?

Take Control of Your Future with Massage Training

"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."
