Train for your Massage Therapy Career in San Francisco

Contributing Writer: Elizabeth Higareda

Being a massage student in San Francisco has been a fantastic experience. There’s a sense of community in my group that I’ve never felt anywhere else I’ve attended school. With San Francisco being such a diverse community, our interactions with the public are always different and exciting. Day to day, we’re always finding new ways to connect concepts and push forward with our education. There’s focus on meditation and finding our center. Lectures are interactive and there’s always ample time for body work. I feel confident in the modalities we’ve learned and I can’t wait to join the work force!

10 Reasons Why I love Learning Massage Therapy at the NHI San Francisco Campus

1. Awesome Mentors! They keep you motivated to come to class and relay information effectively.

2. Supportive classmates. We all help each other in our own specific ways, whether it’s heart warming hugs or that little bit of extra tutoring to get someone caught up.

3. Safe Space. I never have to worry about being judged or bullied when I come onto campus. It’s safe to share ideas, new techniques and to just be myself.

4. NHI takes their name to heart. Massage school truly is a holistic experience. While the focus is on learning massage technique and how to be amazing massage therapists, there are so many little ways that we get to examine and grow ourselves as people. I can hardly believe the growth in my confidence after only 6 months and I’m excited to finish my journey.

5. I know I’m getting the best possible education in the field. We’re constantly getting constructive feedback from teachers, students, and clients. We’re hands on from day one and it only gets better from there.

6. The diverse and crazy-wonderful classmates. I met lifelong friends at NHI – they are so great that I had to mention them twice!

7. Peaceful Environment. The campus provides a calm outlet, even amid a chaotic city.

8. The laughter that accompanies every class. We have a lot of fun!

9. We learn exciting massage therapy techniques. I know that everything I’ve learned during class at NHI is what I’ll take into my future practice.

10.  The Confidence Boost. The confidence that a supportive school gives me, both as a therapist and a person.
