What Our Students Say…
Alumni on their experience at the Academy:
"Thank you for taking the time to speak with me today. Like I said on the phone, I think your school produces some of the best Massage Therapists and I have enjoyed all of the employees I have gotten from the Academy of Natural Therapy. I am hoping to hire a few more!"
~ Alison Taylor
"It was a great experience, very comfortable, very knowledgeable and talented student. I have been having massages from this Academy for over 40 years when it was still in Eaton. You do a great job at training your people. Thank you very much."
~ Debbie Pattan
This month I’ll be celebrating 8 years since I started up at ANT, and I just wanted to say Thank you to you, Dorothy and all the instructors I had! I’ve always struggled with my confidence as a therapist but the other day I had a client tell me he felt my touch was gentle but healing. I’ve gotten many compliments before but I felt like this last one showed what I was taught at ANT and even though I don’t go as "deep" as other therapists, I have the knowledge and skills that have kept me going these past years. Again thank you for giving me that base foundation that has helped me travel and meet people from all over the world!
~ Esperanza Marin
If I could sum up my experience and education at ANT in one word, it would be "equipped". The teachers and staff are fantastic and give you all of the tools that you need to succeed and do well... not only while you’re attending school, but even after you graduate. They are always there to answer questions and help guide you as you find your footing in the massage world. I graduated from the Academy of Natural Therapy, feeling confident that I was fully equipped to begin my career as an LMT, and they have continued to be there for me through every step of the way.

I loved going to the Academy of Natural Therapy! The teachers were great and knowledgeable and I learned so much! It's great to be able to help people with massage and to have a skill that really makes a difference! I wholeheartedly recommend the Academy of Natural Therapy if you have a desire to learn massage therapy.
~ Kimberly Auch
Academy of Natural Therapy was truly the only massage school I wanted to attend. The teachers were all professionals with over a decade of experience under their belts. The students supported each other with open arms. The clinic next door was so convenient to get your required intern hours. Attending a school that is small really gives you the feeling of family. In just one year, I was done with school and ready to start my new career.
~ Penny Quick, LMT
I graduated from ANT in June of 2013. I am now living in Montana, and I am working at a Spa located on a resort in a small mountain area near Glacier National Park. I work with some wonderful MTs, but I must say after talking to them (educated here, NM, and NJ) I feel like their respective schools left out a lot. Then after talking to other therapists I've met over the years, I've come to the conclusion that I have just received a massage education on steroids! Maybe not, but I feel like I've learned a considerable amount from ANT that most schools only consider continuing ED. I have recommended students to ANT, and I certainly would again. I think a good education as your foundation sets your career up for success and longevity.

Academy of Natural Therapy Alumni on their favorite part of the program:
"Graduated from here in 2011 and I'm still in practice. I probably couldn't have done it without the continued support of the school. Thanks for everything you do!" November 2017: Melissa is the Owner of Melistic Massage in Greeley, CO
~ Melissa A.
The Academy was a school worth going to. I couldnt have asked for better teachers and the owners of the school are a wonderful family.
~ Samantha Van Nest
I love ANT: the staff , students and TEACHERS . My personal experience has been life changing. Slower pace, taking better. Care of me, so I can take better care of others. Thanks ANT
~ Renee Marks
The Academy of Natural Therapy is a wonderful place filled with all of the best massage therapists this country has yet to feel. The teachers are all amazing and really work with you, everyone is nice and friendly, it's really a place for natural healers. I would recommend going if you've ever had the intention of learning about massage, even if you have not thought about it before, think about it now! Classes are quick with a lot of information, but if you have the time to put in towards making it to school and honestly trying for this you'd be a lot happier with what you'll learn. One of my favorite classes was Herbology, and I of course enjoyed working in all of the hands on classes. The teachers and staff really made the school worth going to, I'd really recommend going just to meet them. :
~ Mathew Quick
This school changed my life!!! Such amazing teachers and the education is an incredible foundation to create the ideal career! I have owned my own business for over 2 years, I am booked out 9 months, just added 2 new massage therapists, and truly credit my success to this school!! If you're considering any other schools, DON'T!!! The academy of natural therapy is the ONLY place to go!!
~ Rachel H.
This is THE place if you are passionate about being a facilitative healer. I cannot reiterate the quality of my education here or the incredible staff who never ceased to make my success their priority. I graduated with a lot more than a diploma. I gained a family of supportive professionals and colleagues who remain eagerly available to assist me if I ever need them as I've been growing into my new profession.
Smaller classes make for great learning. No fluff like tech schools -and the program demands many more hours than the minimum required. Each instructor tailors every class as needed and extends incredible flexibility because they believe in what they teach and want you to succeed. Students who expect excessive rigidity and impersonal involvement of classmates and staff need not apply. This school has purpose and extends every opportunity possible to any student willing to accept it through the learning process. I felt more confident in the independence I attained by earning my certification here because of the quality education and exponential experience in the field I received.
Furthermore, they offer an Associates Program beyond certification. That is rare in this field and sets this school apart in addition to the many accreditations they have earned and maintain, which is less than 20% of US schools offering Massage Therapy programs currently.
The teachers by far! They were all so passionate and willing to help each and every student. I learned so much from all their knowledge.
~ Rachel Holmgren
Instructors and mentor, you know you can always go to them if there are any problems. Especially Kelly and Deb.
~ Vikki Hamme
Other students and teachers. The experience the people gave me was amazing.
