Kalamazoo was an amazing experience. I would jump at the chance to do it again.  NWSAM instructors are passionate for the work they do offer a caring and supportive environment.  Thank you, Lola, for providing us with such a rewarding experience!

~ Sue Okoniewski — Small Animal graduate

Everyone at the school made me feel so special and so important. They went out of their way to make sure students succeeded. I can’t thank them enough for giving my life new found joy and a feeling of doing something so special and important in this crazy world. Thank you to Lola and all her staff at NWSAM.

I love the hands-on work.  Really enjoyed the guest speakers and exposure to different modalities.  Liked the morning meditations.

~ Jamie Kennedy — Large Animal and Small Animal graduate

I can’t tell you what this means to me.  I have a very troubled horse and bodywork is making a huge difference in him and how he goes.  This has been one of those “life changing” experiences for me.  I will never forget the class, my classmates and you.  I learned so much from everyone.

~ Robin Western — Large Animal graduate

I feel very lucky to have been able to attend this program.  The entire experience was very rewarding and positive.  I’m excited to get out and … start building a new practice!

~ Linda Nylander– Large Animal graduate

I can honestly say that taking the course was one of the best experiences of my life!  I was nervous when the week long practical came around, but I would do it again in a heartbeat!  The work was challenging, but so fun!  The hardest part was not leaving the animal shelter with a new companion!!!
