What Students Want You To Know
"PMA is a short-term program where you could start a career now or later and take with you. Any age is a good age to start. PMA offers a gateway for many opportunities whether it’s your own business or working for a hospital; the door is always open and so is the field."
-Chastity, Current PMA Student
"What attracted me was how fast you will get through the program. I would recommend PMA because the class sizes are small. You get a lot of one on one if needed. The instructors get straight into the topics we need to learn. There’re not all the extra classes you’d have to take if you went somewhere else."
-Allie, Current PMA Student
"I was going into a profession that didn’t have a school that was local and a program that fit what I wanted to do. PMA has a program that fits me, it gets me ready for my career, and is student orientated. PMA is local and has an all around warm welcome that you can’t pass up."
-Chastity, Current PMA Student
"I was attracted to PMA because it was a massage school so close to home. When I read that you graduate in 5 months that sealed the deal! I would recommend PMA to someone because class sizes are small, and you will get a lot of individual attention. Tuition is affordable and it’s the closest massage school to the city of Saint Cloud."
-Kayla, Current PMA Student
