    The best school I have ever been to, and locally owned. Awesome teachers and staff, our group had a lot of fun! They helped me find me a job immediately with an awesome spa, and have answered any questions I had post graduation. If you are looking for a new career as a massage therapist I highly recommend Bellevue Massage School.

    The teachers at BMS are caring and knowledgeable, and the small class sizes mean a lot of 1-on-1 attention!
