What do you think attracts students to your program?
NMSNT offers an extremely diverse curriculum which includes living foods nutrition, massage therapy, polarity therapy, herbal remedies, flower essences, stretches, reflexology and so much more. Students receive a more holistic, well-rounded education that prepares them for integrative treatments and the tools necessary to work with a wide array of clients.
Do students experience hands-on training in the program?
Yes, we believe that experiencing the treatments as both a therapist and client in the classroom setting enables our students to gain valuable lessons through experiencing techniques and concepts hands-on. Our student internship requires 145 hours of student treatments in our clinic to graduate. This affords our students the opportunity to gain confidence, work with a variety of people and to have fun exploring what they're learning immediately.
How many hours of education do you offer, and why is that important?
We offer 825 hours of training in massage therapy, polarity therapy, Chinese medicine, business, ethics, chair massage, cranial sacral therapy, CPR training and many more classes. Every state requires a specific amount of educational hours in order to apply for licensure in massage therapy. Our program of 825 hours exceeds many states requirements in terms of educational hours. This is a great foundation if you want to travel or work in other parts of the country.
What stands out about your training?
NMSNT equips students with the tools and knowledge to heal through nature and to nourish ourselves through lifestyle and awareness. The training empowers our students to address each client as an individual with a unique set of circumstances. Students are able to utilize the skills they've acquired and cater to the specific needs of each client. This knowledge will nourish your professional practice and personal life.
What can you do with the training you experience at NMSNT?
Our students are prepared to work for themselves or with a team of practitioners, with doctors or midwives, chiropractors, etc. The training will give you the tools that you will need to practice in various settings and with compassion for all individuals. You will learn to work with clients who just want to relax, who may be in acute or chronic pain, pregnant, living with TMJ, whiplash, etc. Being aware and prepared to work with diverse populations will enhance your sensitivity and increase your confidence in the field of therapeutic touch.
Do you offer part-time and full-time schedules?
Yes, we cater to all types of schedules! We offer six-month training sessions every March and September. These programs are intense, and students are fully immersed in studies for six months, all day. We also offer one-year programs every May and October. The May program is offered in the evenings from 6 to 9pm weekdays for one year. Every October, we offer a one-year program that meets on weekday mornings from 9am to 12pm. Whether you are a morning, afternoon or evening person, we have a schedule that will meet your needs and cover the same coursework.
