Reviews/Testimonials


I originally chose NHI because of the extensive information they share on their website. The staff is amazing and the curriculum is even better. NHI provides more than a top notch education, but an opportunity to take a life altering journey. Thanks to NHI, I am not only a fabulous Massage Therapist, but a successful business owner as well.

- Malinda Rigel, NHI graduate


I loved being a part of the NHI family. Not only did I learn how to be a compassionate and capable Massage Therapist, but I also learned how to build my business from the ground up. Now I have a successful private practice that I enjoy every moment of.

- Lya Daggett, NHI graduate


NHI has had an incredible impact on my life. The instructors are amazing and they really go above and beyond teaching. They make real connections with their students and have so much compassion. Since receiving my California State Certification, I have been working on building my own private practice. Thank you, NHI, for everything you've taught me about massage and life.
