What People Say About Us:
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!!!!!!
Good afternoon. I wanted to take a moment today to
personally thank you for the opportunity The Gorilla Grant I was awarded provided
me. I completed my SAMP100 practical this past Saturday with a 97! You have an
excellent team in Sandy, Lori, Jaime and Rubi. Each one of them helped me get
to where I am today. Iím so excited about my future and the great things that I
can do for the small animals in my community! I hope to honor your Gorilla and
my Peatie with every special soul I come in contact with.
Thanks again for everything!

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!!!

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!

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.
Lorna Boydston -- 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 just had to email to tell you how IMPRESSED I was with how you set-up, arranged and taught Level 300. It was interesting, fun, interactive and varied in teaching styles. Kudos!
I could see all of the hard work, organization and love you put into this class. You highly exceeded my expectations. Not only did I learn alot, but it was interesting AND I had FUN! You should be very, very proud!
Joy Casamento-Walker -- 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!
