Testimonials



Massage Class of 2011"I was impressed by both the quality and breadth of instruction that was provided by the Integrative Massage Program at UNM Taos. The training I received in relaxing, therapeutic and deep tissue massage techniques was insightful, effective and unique. I also feel that the knowledge I've gained of human anatomy and physiology goes far beyond what most private massage schools are able and willing to deliver. Furthermore, the Integrative Massage Program provides opportunities to train in such modalities such as Ayurveda, Oriental Medicine, Yoga, Far-Eastern bodywork and Cranial Sacral, that would not even be offered in most massage schools. I would enthusiastically recommend this program to anyone interested in a career in Massage Therapy or , indeed, in Holistic Healing in general.”

Dershan"A year ago, when a friend of mine who was in massage school told me they had 650 hours of hands on, I was wondering why so much? Today after my first semester at UNM, I just understood that once you dive into the world of bodywork and got hooked to it--learning will be limitless. Thanks to the life experience and knowledge of the teachers, the program gives a thorough and broad pathway to different modalities from deep tissue to craniosacral passing by Balinese and Thai massage. For me, the way massage is taught as a holistic approach instead of just a technical one was exactly in line with what I was looking for." —Irina Sels, Brussels, Belgium
