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 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!!!

~ Elisa Pantelemon Wagner — Small Animal graduate

I’m even more enthused to pursue this avenue of bodywork.  This has been one of the best continuing education courses I’ve ever done.  Thank you!

~ Kelly Van Allen — Large Animal graduate

The whole body of the course was such an eye-opener to me.  Money can’t buy what I’ve learned in this course.

~ Elizabeth Sinclair — Small Animal graduate

I loved the hands-on time with the horses.  The pace of the class was great, well-broken up between lecture and practical.  The lectures were very well-done.  Great explanations and very interesting.

~ Laura Huddlestone — Large Animal graduate

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