you gotten everything out of the school you expected to?
Yes, I researched schools in many states and feel sure that I
could have spent more money, but couldnít have gotten a better
education. - F. Shirlene Patterson, LMT, graduated May 2005
Absolutely and then some. I enjoyed it even more than I hoped.

Very qualified staff - Jill is great with anatomy, physiology,

instructors were very knowledgeable. - Carolyn Amrit Knaus, LMT, graduated May 2007
What do you feel you have gotten out of your classes?

better instructors or school to attend. I got the most out of
my education and it was very fulfilling to me. Iím now ready
and able to go out and do what I love. - Leah Houtchens, LMT, graduated Nov. 2006

has been phenomenal and the massage technique we learned is
amazing. - Tammy Wood, LMT, graduated May 2007
Would you recommend the school to others?
Yes, and I do. I say the instructors are extremely
knowledgeable. They really make an effort to make sure you

the past elsewhere. - Mary Fly, LMT, graduated May 2007
My opinion? Go to NWASM. You will be taught with concern for
your understanding of the class so you can apply it to your
career - not just on paper to pass a test. - Marsha King, LMT,
