New School For Massage ReviewsLEAVE REVIEW FOR BUSINESS
Amazing school, very prepared teachers, friendly and warm atmosphere, the clinic is connected to the school for your mandatory hours of training "hands on". The preparation for the final state exams for your license it's impeccable (I don't know any of my class mates that failed the state exams). Possibility to follow 2 different class track: the evening class and the fast track in the morning if you want to get licensed in less than a year. Tuition is affordable and definitely worth it.
I graduated from the New School for Massage in February and passed the IL state licensing exam in March. I had a really great experience here and would highly recommend it.
The entire staff were knowledgeable and created a welcoming & engaging learning environment. It is obvious that they really care about the students and are passionate about massage & bodywork. I truly enjoyed going to class and found the workload manageable. I learned a lot from the teachers as well as the other students and really appreciate the active community of bodywork professionals & fellow alumni. Thanks NSM!
I truly adored my experience attending the New School for Massage!
The faculty & staff is so genuinely kind & caring of their students, their learning & life journeys!
Especially as a queer, neurodiverse person with various learning differences & chronic health concerns, it was amazing to be welcomed & accommodated in such a loving environment!
Attending the New School for Massage was one of the best decisions I made for myself in my professional career as well as my own life journey.
I look back fondly & genuinely miss the classes, teachers & students!
After researching the massage therapy school options in the Chicagoland area, I decided this was the one for me. And I was not disappointed!! Great leadership and instructors within a welcoming and supportive environment. Academically powerful and hands-on classes that reinforce the material. The school is connected to a professional massage studio where student clinic is completed. I highly recommend New School for Massage.
I had a great experience at New School for Massage. Good environment, affordable tuition and the value was well worth the price. Capable instructors, amazing hands on clinic opportunity to grow and develop skills. Nice environment and convenient location.
As an foreign student, I felt very comfortable with the way the classes were run. I took the 7 months fast track and time flew. Less than one year later, I finished the school and got my license. The instructors are very patient and comprehensive. Great material and preparation for MBLEx. I passed the MBLEx on the first try and I'm very thankful for learning at this school.
I had a phenomenal experience as a student at the New School for Massage. This is the only massage school that offers such extensive education and provides individual attention to every student. Years later, when recruiting massage therapists to work with me, I welcome a NSM graduate with open arms. Their knowledge and skillset are far superior to an alumni from another school.
My 11 months at New School brought me so far ahead of the game on my anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, and pathology, I sometimes impress myself! In addition to learning effective bodywork techniques and styles ranging from Swedish to Sports, Myofascial to Cranio-Sacral, Trigger Point to Thai, which was our core curriculum, we learned about research, ethics, and business. Then we put all of our sciences together to tackle our last hands-on class dealing with various Conditions such as thoracic outlet syndrome and piriformis syndrome - and not a day too soon, as we were finishing up our now 100 hours of Clinic, giving student massages to the public, which was a phenomenal experience with real clients, the real deal! The teachers were all top-notch - not only educated and experienced in their field, but also great teachers and genuinely likable people, a direct reflection of the School's Director, Emmanuel Bistas. New School is where you want to go if you are looking for personalized attention with smaller classes. As a bonus, I made some great friends whom I am certain will be in my life for many years to come!
If you are seeking a budget friendly, family oriented, in-depth insight into weighted educational resources that will assist you in realizing fully your passion, the New School for Massage is your go to.
Coming from the fitness industry as a personal trainer, I was lucky to finish right before covid and with immerse help from Emmanuel and supporting staff, I was able to take my Mblex and passed a couple weeks early before graduation.
With the knowledge, confidence, and support for continous learning, I can say I have been able to skyrocket my skillset, technique and business wise (a key aspect that is not easily available in our industry)
For the first time in my life, I was excited to go to school and be in a class each day.
I was excited to improve my knowledge and massage technique easily with the comprehensive courses and super helpful tutors.
And the best part, you can free bodywork done on you by other students when practicing during technique class.
I never officially got to say thank you.
Thank you, for helping realizing my passion.
Thank you, for the support and assistance.
Thank you, for the counsel and guidance.
Thank you, for the tutoring and confidence boost.
Thank you, for teaching me a skill to help sustain myself and family.
