The programs and staff here are excellent! I graduated from the Massage Therapist II program in February of 2015 and Kristina's Spa Techniques program in May of 2015. I was able to pass the MBLEX on my first attempt with nothing more than my class materials and opened my business June 1st, 2015! I'm now looking forward to scheduling for Patty's Advanced Medical Massage class to further my skills. This is, hands down, the best choice for your education and kick starting your career quickly and with complete confidence in your abilities!
Loved the time I spent at FSTM! Kristina, Jacki and Patty are great educators, and they each have a unique teaching style. They are extremely knowledgeable and go the extra mile to meet the needs of their students. I highly recommend FSTM to anyone looking for a career in massage therapy.
I chose FSTM after careful consideration of multiple schools. I graduated in 2005 and haven't looked back. The education I received by far excelled what was available at other schools. I have worked at day spas, clinics, and operated my own practice. I currently work at a Medi-Spa and am booked every day. Whenever clients ask me where I went to school, I am proud to say FSTM. Best decision I have ever made for myself. Thank you all for allowing me to find my passion!
I graduated from FSTM in Winter of 2002. I had the most wonderful education experience with my instructors. Their passion for Massage Therapy was genuine and it showed every classroom session. It also impacted my work to be just as passionate and enjoy my skill. I wish I was still living in Michigan just so I could take more classes or at least visit from time to time. Throughout my career as a Massage Therapist I have met very few people that are as passionate about Massage Therapy compared to FSTM staff.
I graduated back in 08 and I am forever grateful for Diana and her amazing staff/team that helped me reach my goals in massage and bodywork. I am going on my 3rd year running a successful massage and wellness company in LA. and I am planning on taking it across the whole country in the coming years. Being in the industry for as long as I have, I've notice the difference between my education level from attending FSTM, and the education level of individuals who have attended other schools, I have to say that everyday I give thanks that I had the opportunity to go to FSTM. Being introduced to INIT and the teachings of Leon Chaitow has made me be able to help aide in the healing of my clients on a deeper level. After I graduated I took it upon myself to read more of his books about bodywork and I would suggest anyone with a real passion in our industry to do so as well. I know this has been a novel so far but my words cannot express the gratitude that I have for this school and everyone involved to make it as great as it truly is. Thank you, and a special thanks to Diana Morgan for creating such a well rounded school.
In 2011 I made a big decision to change my school career to massage therapy. I am forever grateful to FSTM for leading me the way to my true passion. I had the honor of learning from Kristina and Patty(although the rest of the team is amazing, too!) I never wanted to leave school! I LOVE MY WORK ! The possibilities are endless with massage therapy!
just graduated (05-01-13) with a great group of massage therapist from the Adv. Medical class. I strongly encourage anyone, whether graduating from basic or graduated years ago; the medical massage class is the class that will enhance your knowledge and abilities to perform the optimal massage. Instructor Patty will ensure, guide, and encourage your abilities with open arms and a helping hand. Trust me when I tell you she will lead you to success. The knowledge received in this class builds the confidence you will need to be ready to asses any pathology that comes your way in any type facility and scenario, whether spa or medical that you choose to work. From a professional and personal level, I thank you Patty, and thank you FSTM for having this in your program of study.
I graduated Summer 2001, WOW it's been 11 years! I'm so glad I decided to go to FSTM, & it was the Best Decision I ever made! I should of done that sooner! I've worked at a Day Spa, Owned a Spa & worked at Massage on my own while working a full time job. Right after I graduated in Massage I became a Reiki Master. I LOVE it!
I graduated from FSTM Winter 2003, although I started in Fall 2001. I appreciate the whole team of instructors who helped sculpt me into the Professional I am today. Dave, Diane, Patty, Christine, and all the others from that time period, I am in deep gratitude to you for helping us learn more about our passion! Thank you time and time again for all your endless efforts.
