  • “Dear Neha and Paula Curtiss, and everyone at Healing Hands,
                 Thank you from the depths of my soul. Your school equipped me to begin doing the most satisfying and fulfilling work I’ve ever done. It has been challenging physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and the learning never stops. 
                 Paula, you taught me that massage is sacred and it is as though you and Neha and the Healing Hands teachers are working with me still. I’ve written you letters of thanks in the past and I wrote you a review on Yelp, but no matter how I try, words can’t embody the fullness and the riches of life you and your school have given me.  When a client comes back to me and says, ‘You helped me so much,” as one did last Tuesday, or writes on a tip envelope ‘You changed everything for me,” they remind me that those are the words I am to say to you. Just finding my people, my tribe, when I had given up hope at age 43 and had resigned myself to being alone in this world, thinking I must be the only one – what an immeasurable gift. Thank you for providing the place and the space.  Thank you for setting the bar so very high for what a massage school and a business can do in this world. Thank you for being a bright light where we are able to find ourselves.
                I pray Healing Hands will continue forever to share with our world what has been shared with me, to the highest good all ways, through the Christ, Amen.
                With love and gratitude” -Ardith Bergeron, LMT
  • “My education experience at Healing Hands was extremely positive. I was able to finish my program in a timely fashion and secure employment even before I was completely finished. The journey after Healing Hands has led me to a 16 year relationship with Burke Williams as a therapist and a manager.  I also enjoyed work on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean due to my massage training. And becoming a licensed acupuncturist is a direct result of my initial exposure to alternative therapies at your school. Thank you Healing Hands!” -Richard Bishop, LMT,LAc
  • “I began attending Healing Hands in 2011, which proved to be a very pivotal year in my life. Like most therapists, I had decided to go back to school to embrace and strengthen my abilities being a healer for others, but in this time I was the one who needed healing the most.  Just a year prior, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that wreaked havoc on my personal life. I was in and out of the hospital for recurrent surgeries while attending HH. The instructors I had were so helpful in not only educating me as a quality therapist, but also in educating me in self healing practices so I didn’t lose my resolve. All of my instructors were so crying and compassionate, I often look back to how much they had been beacons of light for me in a time of darkness – and for that I am extremely grateful. ” -Orange County, CA
  •          “I am grateful for Healing Hands which prepared me with a solid foundation on the skills and attitude to build my massage therapy career. Besides the classes, I loved the down to earth atmosphere, sitting and learning on the floor, Tai Chi and Chi Gong exercises and frequent visits to Baja Fish Tacos 🙂
               I loved the variety of classes offered which is helping me get more $$. I recently gave my 3,000th massage at the spa.  When I work on clients I always remember what Paula said: ‘you are not just massaging the body; you are massaging entire history of the person.’ It makes me grateful and appreciative of the opportunity with a stranger in the most vulnerable form.
               Call me anytime you need bodies for the clinic. I need massage the most!” -Yasuko Kawamura, LMT
