You got a busy schedule? No problem! This school is very understanding of the fast paced society we live in. They got morning classes, evening classes and an excellent staff that shows they care for your success as a massage therapist. I don’t even gotta study much after class because the information clicks right in. When you’re in a safe and caring environment, that’s the best time to learn! After all, they know its their reputation on the line when I go off around the world talking about where I learned my awesome techniques.
Luis Colindres
I wanted to start by saying this field has always held special interest for me as I struggle with chronic pain no doctor or any medical professional could help me. I have been helped so much by a massage therapist it is amazing so I decided to inquire about this opportunity to help others in the future. I went to BTI to check out their program and was not convinced then came to EMSOM after speaking with Leanne and Dorel I knew it was the right time and the right school. They validated my fears and my insecurities and helped me to overcome them! I felt at home and that they listened and truly care about me. So I gave up my career of 30 years as a retail manager and now am a student learning so much every day and every week. I believe they will help me be the best I can be and will be true mentors for me in every step of the way. The teachers are sincere, very intelligent and truly care about their students. They will go out of their way to help us out no matter what. I look forward to helping people in the future and be the best therapist I can be to make Dorel and everyone proud!
Lisa Moore
In 2003, I graduated from a great school in State College, PA. With the passing of the massage licensing and regulations, my school had closed and I felt kind of ‘homeless’ in a way as for support and continuing education so I hung up my massage business of 10 years. In the past couple months, a friend sparked up my interest in massage and I found that I missed it very much. We attended a class at EMSOM for continuing education to get our licenses up to par and I have found a new Massage School I can call home. 🙂 Thank you so very much Dorel for squeezing us in and teaching us! I can’t wait to get our new office running and my hands on people again!!!
Amanda Fox
I took a continuing Ed course on medical massage. I absolutely loved it! I couldn’t wait to get home and start using the new techniques on my clients. They now too love it. I learned so much! Great hands on, and peaceful environment. Will definitely be continuing my education there in the future. Dorel is a wonderful teacher and really takes the time to teach and show you. Highly recommended.
April Feigles-Rearick
I love this school! The teachers will go above and beyond to help you understand to your best ! Dorel is very involved with us and he’s super understanding and helps you with whatever your dreams are ! They all make sure you achieve your goals and dreams ! They all go above and beyond what I expected ! This school is so much more then I could have ever expected to learn in such a short period of time ! It’s a great school I highly recommend it, it’s the best around ! You get so much more knowledge then simply being a massage therapist !
Courtney Witmer
For me I was sold when they came into the school to talk about it. I really like how they keep on going with it and don’t stop at one thing. They really make things possible. They were very welcoming and are very helpful through out the process of being here. I am very glad I chose EMSOM, they make these things possible and to help you know more about your career. It amazing to be here with everyone and for them to all be kind, help you through the process and to help you grow.
Kylie Rumcik
I am so thankful I found European Medical School of Massage. I feel that I am already surpassing my expectations (as well as my family’s expectations) on what I could learn in school. The instructors are helpful and kind mentors, assisting the students in anyway they can to comprehend and retain information. The staff is warm, sincere, and intelligent, as well as upfront on what they expect from students, as well as what we can gain from EMSOM. I am so thrilled to be attending class and am so excited to see the field of Medical Massage grow!!
Naomi Esther
I am thrilled that I chose European Medical School of Massage. The staff was warm and welcoming and helped to make the transition of going back to school very pleasant. The founders of the school and their instructors embody such drive and passion, I feel fortunate to be among them. I am only a third done the program and I feel both excited and confident in my medical massage knowledge and technique. My instructor incorporates lecture and hands on technique in every class and she is kind enough to share her own professional experiences which are full of clinical pearls and great lessons!
EMSOM’s curriculum is for everyone, whether you are just out of high school, or looking for a rewarding career change, or maybe you are a health professional looking to expand your services. Whatever path you are on, EMSOM is an excellent choice and I couldn’t be more thankful to be a part of this school and growing profession!
Ciara Ann
I feel fortunate to have completed the program at EMSOM and I am grateful to the EMSOM instructors for a clear understanding of all the components that comprise the field of massage therapy. The instructors and administrators are very passionate about the profession and determined to see EMSOM students succeed. The desire of the instructional staff members to support all students was apparent throughout the program. Their expertise and transfer of knowledge of massage techniques was invaluable. I acquired a variety of hands-on experiences and feel confident to begin my career as a top notch medical massage therapist.
