“This is a great school. I would definitely recommend this college to anybody wanting to learn about Chinese medicine as well as massage and acupuncture techniques. School feels very complete and the staff is very knowledgeable. It’s exciting to work with such professional teachers and to learn so much that’s such an accelerated rate. I personally am very excited to attend this school and would recommend it to anybody that is looking to become certified and massage or acupuncture and so much more. The facilities are generally pretty clean and well-kept as well as stocked pretty well. The library is full of so much material that you can’t really find anywhere else. Student alumni have a lot of ability for employment as well as Clinic hours.

I’ve noticed that a lot of our teachers are former students themselves and I think that says a lot about the school. The dean is a very Hands-On open door policy type of professional. And the students are really wonderful people and it has been a pleasure to work with such ambitious people. They do also have a bookstore and a small Cafe where you can get all of your reading material as well as a bite to eat. They are very covid compliant even post-plandemic. And I think it’s really amazing how they have set the school up so that many different medical facilities are represented on campus. I’m very excited to continue my education here as well as very grateful for this opportunity. One last note I am a disabled veteran and they do accept GI Bill as well as vocational rehabilitation chapter 2930 31 32 and 33.”
