Lola! I just wanted to…say with the most sincerest of love and gratitude “Thank you!” from the bottom of my heart. 9 years ago I chose massage school over nursing school. That first session at  NWSAM…set me on the  journey of my life! That first session of school opened up my world in more ways than I could ever explain. Today I was asked to speak at a clinic in Woodland. People want to hear what I have to say!!! Everyday I get to work on a horse it feeds my soul like no other. I am definitely doing what I am meant to do. For that….. I thank you! Your little school literally changed my life! I am forever indebted to you, Megan and NWSAM!!!!!!

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

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 am very impressed with this program and will recommend it to anyone interested in this field.  I look forward to continuing my education through the Northwest School of Animal Massage.

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!

I found the instructors to be excellent at demonstrating and explaining information.  By the time I went to the practical session, I felt very prepared.
