student-demonstration“My experience at MSTM was awesome! I learned so much about the body and about healing. In the process, I also learned a lot about myself. The administrative staff was professional and friendly. The instructors were experienced, knowledgeable, motivating, and inspiring. Every class was well structured, fun, and interesting. I truly felt like each instructor cared about my success. If you are thinking about becoming a massage therapist, look no further – MSTM is the best school on Maui!” ~ Monica Barnas Smith MS, LMT (graduated Fall 2009)
