Recomended Reviews of NHI

Akilah T. on Yelp Akilah T. Fairfield, United States

Since becoming a student at NHI, I have developed a greater sense of purpose and significance in my life. The instructors truly care about each student as a person and as a rising colleague in the industry of massage. Clients respect that we are students while also appreciating the level of expertise and knowlege we provide for their bodies and overall well-being. I recommend NHI to anyone interested in the field of massage and to everyone with a desire to implement a massage regimen into their lives.

Tracy C. on Yelp Tracy C. Santa Rosa, United States

In May of 2009 I changed the course of my life by attending NHI. Because of a phenomenal staff, I was able to re-invent myself and establish a new career. It was an amazing experience and I am excitedly building a practice in Santa Rosa. But what is most incredible of all is that I recently discovered the basic foundations I learned at NHI prepared me for some very challenging times I have faced in my personal life. Friends and family have told me that I definitely changed since beginning the program and I am better equipped to handle all that life throws me. Thank you NHI for teaching me to be grounded, mindful and present!

Mary K. on Yelp Mary K. Novato, United States

I am a student here at NHI, I absolutely enjoy it. When I was looking at Massage Schools nothing could come close to NHI. Then I found out that there was a campus near my home and they offer financial aid a big plus for me. It is not only a school buy a community of professional instructors that make you feel right at home. I have only been a student for 6 months and I have grown so much not only in my work and knowledge of the body but as a person. I defiantly recommend this school to anyone who is dedicated and wants to be a Massage Therapist!

"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."
