This is is a selection from the many letters that we receive from satisfied current and former students of the Northern Institute of Massage:

Having just received my Northern Institute of Massage exam results in the post, I was so pleased to find that I had passed. It just shows you're never to old to learn and possibly have a career change!
Finally I would like to thank all the Tutors at the NIM for all their help and support throughout my course, without this it would not of been possible to achieve my results.
Many thanks to Eddie, Chris, Shaun, Dave the First Aid Trainer, Dawn Bennett the Examiner and also Marie who would greet us each morning with a welcoming smile. Thanks again to the whole team look forward to studying with the NIM in the near future


I don't think I have ever thanked you formally for everything: having NIM has really given me the opportunity to develop my dream job: so much so that I have resigned my "day job" to concentrate upon my patients.


Since qualifying I have treated many people. This is without any advertising just word of mouth recommendation. I look forward to coming vback to do some further training.

GEOFF COOKE, Derbyshire

I now run my own massage business and I’ve never been so busy in my life. I get referrals from doctors and chiropractors and I have many patients from local factories and football teams.

Mrs R D (H198) Donegal

Can I say “Thank you” for being so patient and allowing me the space I needed to complete this course. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning with you all.

Ms M M (H207) Borders

Just a note to thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise and showing me the way of healing. May God bless you all. Heartfelt thanks.

Ms D B (H181) Cork City

Thank you for getting me through the Remedial Massage course. The business has started very well and I am sure that the coming year will continue as things have started this year.

Ms J L (Q159) Newbiggin-on-Lune

I guess it is quite unusual to follow my daughter on your course. She has done so well that it has made me interested and determined to follow her to the Northern Institute. It was a big challenge to start something new at my age but it has been well worth it and I am very busy in my growing practice.

Mr P K (P189) Worthing

I am very pleased to inform you that I have been successful with my application to my local football club and I start as their masseur next week. Thank you for the excellent training at the ‘Northern’ and for the good advice about landing the new job; I’m looking forward to life in the Championship.

Mr L W (P165) Rotherham

Thank you for the excellent training in both Remedial and Sports Massage. The experience of the Olympic Games was fantastic and I realise how much I owe to my tutors at the Northern Institute. Thank you once again.

Mr T T (K123) Doncaster

Here are my last test papers. I just wanted to say that I’ve really loved these lessons. I’ve loved learning about the human body and I feel that studying at the Northern Institute was the best decision in all my fifty two years of life.

Ms B C Western Cape & Northumberland

I would like to thank you for my first class training at the Northern Institute. Last year, I did a course in sports massage locally, more or less to keep myself on a learning curve and I can tell you that it had no comparison with Northern Institute classes.

I am doing massage treatments part-time and I now realise how much you have taught me. I get regular clients who are very surprised at how effective massage and mobilisation can be, especially when they have been for a number of treatments to other health professionals with little or no effect.

Ms D C Leicester

Sorry it’s been a while since I have seen you but I have been kept very busy these last couple of years. I am still working for the Ambulance service with most of my hours spent giving treatments to staff. During the past two seasons I have been lucky enough to work at Nottingham Forest FC Youth Academy on Saturdays giving “physio” cover.

Mr A P (K141) Staffordshire

I really enjoyed the class last weekend; it was so good to get some practical tuition and I thought that both the tutors (Dawn Bennett & Shaun Pennington) were excellent and I learnt a lot from them both. Thanks again for a brilliant weekend and good to meet so many City fans, too!

Mrs E R (Q158) Lancashire

Thank you for your kind wishes for my future and I am extremely happy to have done so well in my examinations.

I must say that in all my years of studying in the Nursing and Midwifery profession I cannot remember working as hard for my exams as I have done on your course.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and have acquired a wealth of knowledge, not only in massage but also the physical/mental wonders and mysteries of the human being.

I would like to state that I consider that you and the other members of the Northern Institute staff do a wonderful job in successfully running all the courses and seminars. It is without doubt one of the best colleges I have attended in all my career. Thank you once again.

Mrs MD (Q110) Quatar & Stockport

Thank you for all the support during the massage course. I am looking forward to continuing my education and I am looking at sports therapy.


I am delighted to have become a Massage Therapist after spending most of my working life as a plumber! Many thanks to all the staff for their expertise and patience. Hopefully, I will be back to complete the Advanced Remedial Massage Course next year!
