Carol Carpenter began the massage therapy institute in a house on College Avenue in Oakland and it grew steadily. The National Holistic Institute became accredited, the first massage school in California to do so.
NHI's massage therapy education and faculty were one of the most respected in the nation and the school kept growing and improving throughout the 1990s and early 2000s. In 2003, Mason Myers and Tim Veitzer purchased NHI from the school's founder and have continued the growth and tradition of excellence in massage therapy education.
Today, NHI is one of the most respected and largest schools of massage therapy in the world. Their history and network of relationships in the field continue to help graduates have success and help keep their fingers on the pulse of the dynamic field of massage therapy.
