I Just Had To Write A Review
I just had to write a review because I really think that people should know that there is a school in Atlanta that will teach you everything you need to know and some. \rGwinnett College Sandy Springs has the most awesome teachers, Crewes, Carl, Irwin, and Jason to name a few will make sure that what you learn sticks!\rTalk about interactive, I am learning sometimes and don't even realize it because their classes are so engaging, current, and relevant. \rThe staff are always very helpful, and yes Ty to be a young man with sooooo many hats never makes you feel like an outcast or that you are bothering him. He gets the job done.\rI am currently in the MT program, and I would recommend this school to anyone who is serious about learning and want the best school in town to learn it.

Boy are you guys in for a suprise
Look i have been in the field for a while and i will be the first to tell anyone that this is the school to go to. I have worked and received massages from other grads and they do not compare!!! They usually don't know what they are doing!!! Rising Spirit students have a far better education than any other student coming from other schools. Hands down! \r\rNow ASM students are usually taught how to talk the talk. They take specialized courses that do not focus on modality but more on how to behave and what to expect. How ever they do not know NMT and other massage modalities that are in my oppinion what you need to know to help manage pain in medical settings. \r\rClock hour schools are very stressful. When you punch a clock, like every other machine it will mess you up if you rely on it. I am currently enrolled in a clock hour school and it sucks!!!! I am constantly hearing complaints about hours not being counted and classes having to be taken over and credits not getting counted!!! It is a stress i never had to worry about!! I personally have had a hard time with it and I work my but off!!!\r\rNews FLASH NO TRADE SCHOOL TRANSFERS!!!! They want you to do things there way! and want your full money! if you went to another community collage that offers it, they probably will!\r\r\rDON""T PLAN ON DOING MASSAGE FOR A LIVING!!! Yes i said it. Right now we are being priced out by Massage Envy and Groupon nuts!! It is slowly becoming a minimum wage job no matter what school you go to or what your back ground is. Most places offer Swedish and deep tissue any other modality is not offered or heard of. Nobody right now wants to pay a lot for a massage and specials are everywhere. I do not know one therapist making over $35 a year and that is the hustlers. Don?t expect steady money. Half the year you will starve.\r \rDoctors do not respect you because of all the BS out there!!! \r\r ON THE BRIGHT SIDE!! You will be nationally certified, not just state certified is what you w

I asked before I started if my credits would transfer to another school, because my husband and I were planning on moving in the next year, and I wanted to make sure that my time here would not be wasted. ""Yes, your credits will transfer, as long as it's to another Massage School,"" is what I was told. Well, apparently they will tell you whatever they can to get you in the door and take your money, because this is not true. I tried 3 different Massage Schools in the area I now live in, and none of them would accept transferred credits. So here I am, with 6 months of massage therapy training, yet I've had to start over at square 1. Not to mention the $5,000 that I wasted. And the time that I did spend here, was not satisfactory at all :( The ""small, one-on-one"" classes had 20+ people in them, and one of my instructors was simply the worst teacher I had ever had. I've learned more in 4 weeks from the instructors that i have now, than I did in 6 months at Gwinnett College. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Gwinnett College - Sandy Springs is an outstanding place!!!! \r\rThe instructors are literally amazing, like for real. I learned more than I ever thought possible. Carl Christie is extremely knowledgeable and fun to learn with. Scott Crewes is perhaps one of the most interactive, engaging teachers I have ever been in the classroom with. Dr. Ellis really takes education to the next level, I still have notes taken from his class that I will forever keep, his information is golden, priceless. \r\rGwinnett has a great, small campus environment with caring administrative staff that want you to succeed. Ty Davis, one of the upper level administrators, is the BEST, I literally have never met a person with such charisma, passion for education, and a love for the students. I felt like a member of his family from day one. \r\rThe President of the school is a man of true integrity and compassion. He is also one of the most approachable people I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. He is more like a good neighbor than the president of a college. \r\rI have nothing but positive things to say about the rest of the Administrative staff as well. Bob in job placement was diligent and professional in getting me job interviews, he even helped me fine tune my resume to help my chances. Nick in admissions was so helpful and nice, he even helped me find apartments in the area so I could be closer to school. Miss Myra at the front desk is one of the sweetest human beings I have ever met. \r\rI have nothing but good things to say about my time at Gwinnett College - Sandy Springs and will always have fond memories. My education was second to none, the skills and knowledge I obtained there have helped me to succeed in a career that I love!!! I never could have done it without Gwinnett College - Sandy Springs. \r

An awesome school!
I can't help but notice some complaints about Gwinnett College/Rising Spirit on here. Here's my take on some of those specific complaints. They don't ""give"" you a table and neither do any of the other schools. The other schools charge you for them and add it to your tuition, not giving you the option to shop for the one you want to buy (which will last a huge majority of your career). Instead they have several to offer if you choose to buy them through the school, but can buy a table off amazon or ebay if you want. Heck, a yard sale for that matter.instead of racking up charges on your bill to the college. Which is again, thousands less than the other ""massage schools"" in the Atlanta area!Having to bring your own sheets and cream to clinic.it's not like the school keeps them when you leave! You will have your sheets to start your career with! BTW Gwinnett College lets you take your clients with you from clinic when you graduate, how awesome! I wasn't forced to use a cream that I was allergic to or didn't like.I was able to bring what I wanted to use. It's the real world, buck up! I happily prefer to pay for a few sheet sets and cream than pay for the malpractice type insurance that the school has to pay for to have STUDENTS work on real clients. Ya kinda can't buy your own insurance until you have graduated, taken the national and have a business license. Thank you Mr. Davis for paying for my insurance! Oh and thank you for paying for the tv ads that got clients in the clinic for me. No telling what that cost either.If you are serious about becoming a massage therapist and want an awesome top notch education I highly suggest you compare this school to the rest before you pick. Then you will see first hand what a great decision you made. I'm sad that school is over for me and will greatly miss it....
