Finding the Right Massage School for You
Students enter school with a primary interest in Massage Therapy education, yet most leave with a deeper sense of a personal vision for their life’s journey. Greta Stromberg
We are not victims of our genes, but masters of our fates, able to create lives overflowing with peace, happiness and love.

I attended the 2006 summer intensive program in Clarkdale. I have since moved to Missoula, Montana, where I live, love, and practice. Thank you all (Joe and Jamie especially), for the ripples massage school has created in my lake of life! In a town brimming with aspiring therapists due to the school here, I have one thing that sets me apart from all the rest- ASIS. The integration, the knowledge, but most importantly, the love and support from ASIS, is responsible for creating the therapist I have become. May you all continue to create ripples in others lives! Peace & Much Love,
I just stopped by the massage cohort (Sarah’s class) that is about to graduate. I spent ten or so minutes talking to the class and getting their perspective on the program. They were all incredibly enthusiastic about the program, their experience, their classmates, the education they received, and the quality of the instructors. This really was one of the best, most enthusiastic, groups I have ever talked to, and it says a lot about the work that you have done at ASIS. I encouraged them to contact me with quotations for the website and many said they would do so. Some also volunteered to do information sessions with Sarah. (They were also very positive about the ASIS noncredit workshops some of them had completed with ASIS).
Congratulations on a second successful massage cohort at CLC. How nice it was to hear so many different comments about how much they had learned, how much the faculty had helped them, how right they were to have entered into the program here at CLC.

The real voyage of discovery
is not seeking new landscapes
but in having new eyes.
I finally have the national exams behind me and would like to say “Thank You!” ….. to all of my teachers who listened and put up with my never ending questions with patience and never ending answers.
It’s not easy shifting gears and directions after 35 years.
I feel fortunate and very appreciative!

…. this is a my phonetic spelling of a Japanese saying which is actually used more as a Grace before eating, but my gorilla translation for this situation goes kind of as follows;
Thank to my teachers
and to their teachers
and to their teachers
and so one and so on ….
I wanted to write you this quick note to say that I had been struggling through Anatomy class, and today things finally turned around for me.
I have to admit that this class frustrated me in that I would have to memorize such difficult names of bones and muscles. Before today, I must admit being afraid i would not get it.
The instructor for this class is very helpful to say the least.
Its not everyday that we have someone who will go out of their way for us, to help us understand something…
He does this for his class.. I am enjoying the program, and feel very grateful… I wanted to pass this information along.
Wishing you a great week,
….I would like to thank you for providing an absolute wonderful opportunity and fantastic program at ASIS for those of us who have a desire and interest in becoming great LMT’s! And under the guidance of professional, knowledgable and personable teachers…..
“Being a student at ASIS, I uncovered possibility of unity from the inside and outside myself.”
“I am so amazed!! I guess I’m just realizing that if I do my work and be thankful and positive that I can make anything happen . …it’s pretty mind blowing to me right now. …just very grateful, and I again want to thank you for helping soooo much with this growth!
LOVE YOU, I’m walking on the moon right now and it’s just the beginning. I feel it .

I recently had an appointment to take my National exam Saturday the 25th. The reason for this message is to inform you that I passed the test and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, ASIS, and the wonderful instructors for my educational experience. As I was completing the test, I realized that all of the anxiety was a complete waste of time. My instructors had me prepared for all to come, especially the Kinesiology section of the program/test. Once again thank you for my educational experience and how well it prepared me for the “BIG TEST“.
I would accept any offers in the future for furthering my education through your reputable program. I would relish the experience to meet additional instructors as talented as; Mr. Frazier, Mrs. Debenedeto, Mrs. Landers, Ms. Boehning and especially Ms. DiMaria. You certainly have done your homework in your search for positive role models for this chosen profession. I will get back to you if I have a change in my current finances. Joe, thank you again for what has turned out to be one of the better experiences of my life.

Step Off Proudly
A baby pigeon stands on the edge of a nest all day.
Then he hears a whistle, Come to me.
How could he not fly toward that?
Wings tear through the body’s robe
when the letter arrives
“You’ve flapped and fluttered against limits
You’ve been a bird without wings in a house without doors
Compassion builds a door.
Restlessness cuts a key.
proudly into sunlight,
not looking back.
Take sips of this pure wine being poured.
Don’t mind that you’ve been given a dirty cup.
