I am almost done w/ school and overall I loved every second of learning new skills w/ great teachers. Very grateful specially to teachers Deidre Best in Hands on and Dr C Brown in Anatomy they are phenomenal sharing their expertise and "digesting" the overload of info to make your life easier, giving you all the tools to succeed. Totally recommend attending this school. I come from a professional background and this school offered a casual but professional environment, there's a good structure in place to support the student thru the 720 hours. It took a while to get my loan approved so thank you to the financial dept as they were extra patience . Recommended

All of my instructors were amazing, my two main instructors especially. They took the time to explain everything to each student till we fully understood. The anatomy portion is very thorough, and the hands on class teaches you many useful therapeutic techniques to help clients with various issues. All while keeping us interested. I would go back in a heart beat for a re-cap! The school itself is very clean and organized, and working with directors with finiacial aid was simple. Upon graduating they'd help with your plan of business, advice for job searches, and how to go about getting license, etc. Honestly couldn't think of a single complaint...
