Carlson is the place to go if you are anywhere in driving distance! I made a commute to attend and even moved to the area to be more fully immersed. The depth of knowledge that you get in a short time is incredible! I felt more than prepared to start a career. Whatever a client throws at me, I’m equipped to handle it. Not only was the education top notch, but the whole experience was full of lovely memories and relationships. Can’t recommend Carlson enough!

I graduated from this school and it truly sets you up for success. Straight out of school I had many people compliment me on my massage skills and I was prepared for my career. The teachers here are kind, warm, and super fun. I loved every minute of going to this school. I highly suggest it!

I have been a returning customer for many years. Very friendly and helpful staff. Such a great way to meet a massage therapist you vibe with. Many student massage therapist to choose from and finding the one that fits your needs. Always look forward to student massage therapy sessions which fill up quickly.

I love getting massages at Carlson College! The massage room is divided into several stations, with minimal whispered discussion allowed, making the atmosphere extremely peaceful and relaxing.
