Life Changing! – I am just about halfway through the 7 month day program and have loved every minute of it. I can't get over how grateful I am for the friends, knowledge, and inner peace I have gained from becoming a student there. I don't want it to end!
I'm a recent graduate of the nine month program at Institute of Massage Therapies (April 2011). Words cannot express how amazing I think this school is. The instructors are so passionate and knowledgeable about what they do and they really want to see you (the student) succeed. This course is not for the faint of heart. You have to be willing to put in the time and effort, and if you do, you will walk away with more knowledge than you could ever have imagined you could attain in a nine month period. The instructors are incredible teachers that manage to teach things in a way that A. makes them memorable and B. makes the harder concepts easier to understand. Going to this school will absolutely arm you with the confidence and skill needed to work as a massage therapist (not to mention the ability to pass the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork. I passed the first time I took the test.) On a personal level, this program changed my life. It made me a better, more positive, and confident person. Going to this school is probably one of the best decisions I have made. Again, I don't think I can truly express how awesome an experience learning at this school was. I just believe that if you are looking for a place to learn massage therapy, look no further...Institute of Massage Therapies is where you need to be.
The Best School Around!! – Pam is the best teacher!! She's there to help people in every way. It doesn't take long to realize she knows it all! she teaches you everything she knows so you can pass it on to everyone you know. You won't regret going to this school, you cant get this anywhere else!!
What a wonderful way to relax! – I haven't had a massage in a while so a friend and I decided to give Institute of Massage Therapies a try. My therapist, Michelle, was wonderful! Not only did she thoroughly review my history before the massage, but she also made me feel comfortable. She knew exactly which areas had the most tension and after the massage, she even gave me tips on what I could do to help prevent the built up tension & some cramping I was having in my calves. It was so relaxing, I'm going to call to schedule another appointment!
The Institute of Massage Therapies – When I first visited the Institute of Massage Therapies, I had never had a massage in my life. A friend suggested this to me because I was having problems with both my right leg and back. The first thing that happened was a fairly complete list of what was ailing me and what a massage could do to make me feel better. I went to the massage area and was still apprehensive. Once the massage started, I felt a strange thing happening - the tension in my body went away and I felt asleep. It was so relaxing. As time went on, I continued returning to the Institure for additional sessions and let them know if there were special areas (back, feet, etc) that needed more attention. I have always been satisfied and left more relaxed when I left.
Pam is the director of this Institute and teaches each of her students to emulate her. I have seen many people coming and going and they all say the same thing about the Institute of Massage Therapies - they are happy and more relaxed. Because all of the staff are trained by Pam, they all offer the same techniques and level of service. What did Richmond do for a decent massage before Pam arrived and started her training and service?
I give the Institute 5 STARS for its' professionalism and service. I will continue to patronize them.
When I went on to the Institute of Massage Therapies to get a routine massage my eyes were opened to a new way of thinking "healthy". My therapist was JoAnn and she helped me understand why I was suffering with tired muscles and an acking back. She took her time and helped me learn ways to lessen stress with small techniques that I would be able to do on my own until my next visit. I will be sure to keep every appointment and will let everyone I know where to go next time they need a massage!!! Thank you JoAnn!!!
How do you spell relief?? Institue of Massage Therapies – I can't say enough about my experiences at the Institute. Mireck is my therapist and he has skills. I tried to find another therapist closer to my home but that was a big mistake and waste of time and money. My body told me to get back to Mireck in a hurry because I just was not getting the relief I needed. I have been
getting massages for years and it's really hard to find a great, skilled therapist that knows about the body and able to give the customer the service you deserve. Thanks, Mireck. Thanks, Pam.
I highly recommend the Institute of Massage Therapies. Ask for Mireck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is absolutely the best massage school around. I am a recent graduate of Institute of Massage Therapies and I have to say it changed my life. Not only do you get the very best massage and anatomy education, but you will also leave with a different perspective on life. After only being in this profession for a very short time, I have the confidence and ability to change other people's lives with what I have learned. Don't waste your time looking at other schools. You won't find one.
Thank You Pam! – I am not a student at the Institute, but I am a very satisfied customer! I went to see Pam due to a lack of flexability in my neck. Pam took the time to dig deeper in my problems and discovered that I was also experiencing pain in my knees and lower back. She explained to me that there was a connection between my lower back and knee problems. In only two sessions, Pam not only gave me more movement in my neck that I have had in 10 years or more, but also worked on stretching a muscle in my left hip that was pulling my lower body out of alignment thus causing the pain in my knees. Pam gave me some exercises to do at home that continue to help increase the flexability in my neck and help keep my knees painfree. I am now able to walk 18 holes of golf without the knee problems that I experienced in the past.
Thanks Pam for all of your help!!!
