“As a student at DSM, I was given the guidance, techniques and knowledge to become a professional massage therapist in the state of Maine. I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to study with Nancy and her colleagues. Upon graduation, I will be working as a LMT in a collaborative non-profit center for healing. I truly believe that my education through DSM has given me the ability to make a difference in people’s lives with therapeutic massage.”

“As a physical therapist, one of the primary reasons I enrolled in the DSM was to expand my hands-on manual therapy skills in my therapeutic “tool box.” I chose DSM because of their commitment to providing a scientific background as a foundation for all their students, as well as their reputation for providing a thorough massage education. The courses in Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology were comparable with those of my undergraduate education in exercise physiology.
“What I came away with from the school was far more than I expected. Not only did I expand my collection of manual therapy skills, but also I gained a whole new level of understanding of the healing benefits of hands-on treatment and massage.
“The addition of massage in my practice will help bridge the medical model of client care with the more holistic health model of wellness and prevention.”
