read moreIntroduction to Massage class was a very enjoyable class as I enjoyed giving massage as much as I enjoyed receiving massage. I also enjoyed the faculty members who are always willing to assist and encourage you. Our class became very close over our year at the Institute. Classmates became a second family. One of the most significant things that I learned while at school was that surrounding yourself in an environment full of people who care, brings out the best in you. I left my hometown to move to Lincoln to attend the Institute, because I wanted to attend the best school that I could find.
