Involvement is a prerequisite for growth.
Teachers employ various teaching techniques such as the hands on practical
approach, visual examples as well as lecture. This encourages all students to
learn in a way best suited to their learning style.
Texas School of Massage is different from other schools because
all internship massages are performed in private rooms. North Texas School
of Massage also provides all supplies and equipment. We intend
that the student be trained both in the classroom and through
practical experience. Private rooms allow the student to experience
and professionally handle the various situations that occur. A full
time private internship is superior. We maintain a large client base
that may book massage appointments year around. Private internship rooms
simulate the real world of massage therapy, giving the student the
opportunity to learn in a safe, realistic environment.
other schools offer internships only during limited months
and times because the "internship clinic" is also used as
the classroom. Some school internship clinics are
open year around, but located in one large room. In other
schools students must provide the massage tables, oil and
sheets. In these ward type settings, massages are performed next
to other interns also performing massages. This is inferior;
specifically because of the lack of client privacy as the client
gets on and off the massage table. Music, lighting and
temperature cannot be modified to meet individual client
preference in ward settings. It is no wonder students have
transferred to our school to complete their internship because at
North Texas School of Massage all equipment and
supplies are provided including the clientele, and every intern
massage is performed in a private room. (See Career

receiving a license a limited number of graduates may work at the NTSSM
registered clinic. This
may allow graduates to enter the work force, with no further investment and
virtually no risk.
Other students start their own business or work in a preexisting clinic,
doctor’s office, hospital, spa, resort, salon, gym or one of the many other
existing alternative health opportunities.
