I chose IAM because of the attention that you receive from the instructors. They always made time for questions and explained everything thoroughly. Kendra and the other instructors set you up for success, and make sure that you have all the tools necessary to step into the industry and immediately be great. I would definitely recommend IAM to anyone who is wanting to start their professional career, or like me, wanting to switch careers.
The amount of times I’ve heard “that was the best massage of my life” is such a wonderful feeling. I certainly know I’m not the best and still have so much learning to do, but it speaks volumes to the education and mentorship I received. I’m so thankful for the instructors and IAM! Thank you! ❤️️ Cheers to finding my niche and living my dream!
The teachers are dedicated and focused on your learning.
The time spent in IAM flew by and every moment spent there was never dull. Another reason I went with the decision of going to IAM was the instructor-to-student ratio. Instructors were able to focus on each student individually and were able to cater their teaching styles to our learning styles.
I found IAM to be a very supportive environment, and I loved the small class sizes. The curriculum provides a solid foundation and the soft skills that I can continue to build upon.
Choosing the right massage therapy program can be a significant financial decision for some students. Tuition for our program costs $7,880 and includes a uniform (“scrubs”), textbooks, study tools, student liability insurance, ABMP & AMTA membership, and the MBLEX exam fee, which is reimbursed upon passing the first time.
Tuition for our fast-track program is more affordable than most massage schools in Indiana, and less than half the cost of similar programs in other states. We can connect students to multiple avenues for financial assistance.
