I had a two hour massage for Cynthia Brennecke and she was amazing. I told her my problem areas and she made me feel like a new women. She has hands of a Goddess. She did a combination of hot stones and her perfect touch. I have huge stress knots between my shoulder blades and with that one session she was able to get rid of all of my trigger points out without making me feel like I was run over by a truck. Hands down I recommend her. She is so, so wonderful. From a happy customer!! Mable

I received a hot stone massage from Cynthia B on Saturday 4/7/2012. It was by far the best massage I have ever had. She was very focused on the tense parts and attentive to what I needed. She is amazing and very sweet. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their therapist. I plan on following her once she graduates. You don't want to let a good thing like that get away:)

After receiving a 90 minute deep tissue massage by Irina, a student at the Alpha School of Massage, I felt very relaxed. Before the massage I mentioned to her the spots that were bothering me the most and that where the tightest. She was able to give me a full massage that loosened everything but was also able to find my problem areas and concentrate on them to relieve the pain. \n\nI look forward to future massages from Irina and believe she will make a fine massage therapist. \n\n

I just received a great massage from Cynthia B. at Alpha School of Massage. She is one of the many excellent students who have made my life much better with their caring touch and expertise at making my muscles relax. Cynthia has worked her magic on me in several sessions including one two hour massage that I will never forget. She has been well taught and combined that with a natural empathy that lets her find the spots that really need help so she can provide much needed relief.

I got my first barefoot massage from Irina, who is a student at Alpha School of Massage. I have never had that before. It was the best expiriense!!! After massage I was very relaxed. Love it a lot. \r\nI would recommended to all of my freinds to have it done.\r\n\r\nElena

I have come regularly to Alpha, as it is always a pleasant experience. The Staff is great and the massages you receive are second to none. Cynthia Brennecke comes highly recommended by me as I have cronic shoulder pain. She did the best at loosening my shoulder out of any massage therapist I have been to in my 9 yrs of getting massages! Again highly recommend, what do you have to lose except the pain you have right now!

I came in for my first massage at Alpha and Melanie Hatch was my massage therapist. She discussed with me the problems and issues I was experiencing and had a very professional and yet calming way about her. During the massage she explained what she would be doing, always checking with me to make sure everything was ok. My massage was somewhere between a swedish and deep tissue.\n\n When the massage was over I was so relaxed and felt so much better! I even recommended Melanie to my husband because he needs deep tissue massages and he was really happy with his massage as well. Thanks again Melanie!

I received a full body massage from Olga. It was very professional and I was very satisfied. She used the hot stones and she was able to find all my tention areas and l was very relaxed from the experience. She also walked on my back with her feet which did a deep massage I have never had that before. I have been to professionals and paid much more money and never received a masssage better than hers. Thanks again from Cathy Kirkpatrick

I recieved a full body Swedish Massage from Cynthia Brennecke at Alpha School of Massage 02/07/2012.\r\n\r\nIt was my first time ever recieving a professional's touch and I couldn't have left more satisified. Cynthia had a very shoothing calming voice, her apperance was professional, the energy was outstanding! She brought comfort to my mind, body and my soul. She found several ""tention areas"" in my back and neck that needed to be worked out; and though it was uncomfortable; she was gentle and very calmly walked me through everything so I be as relaxed as possible, and she could work out some tention. The hot coals she used felt amazing as well! The room she placed me in was dim, the table was nice and warm, the sheets smelt fresh and clean, the music; soothing and relaxing. Everything was incredible! I will be returning to Alpha and be requesting Cynthia again!!\r\nI give her a 10 out of a 10!!\r\nI'm a very satisified customer!\r\n\r\n

I have gone to Alpha for years....and use to be a member to Massage Envy...Even have gotten massages out of the country, and while on vacations...so I LOVE and know a good massage. Yesterday Suzette, not sure of her last name, I think Crown, gave me a fantastic massage. She explained the procedure to me as if I'd been there for the first time, which I liked. Listened to what I told her about the areas I was most concerned with, and the firm pressure I like. Even propped my head up with a towel while she was massaging my feet...good and hard, I might add. I have problems with lymphadema, and she really worked on that, so I left with better range of motion. I would highly reccomend Suzette, and certainly HOPE I will get to have her work on me again. She gave me one of the best massages I have had. Thanks again Suzette!

One of the first things I noticed about Aya is her appearance. She dresses like a Massage Therapist. She is neat, tidy and well groomed. She looks like a professional.\nI have had a couple massages from her. She communicated well with me during the massage; she is very attentive and listens to her clients needs.\nHer draping is excellent.\nHer massage techniques are very good for someone who is still a student. The pressure of her hands varied as she communicated with me throughout the massage. I particularly liked her flow of the treatment as she started on the head/face area, gradually moving to the upper body and arms, then to the lower body. Her touch is very relaxing and I feel very comfortable during her treatments. She is very focused.\nShe will no doubt be an awesome licensed massage therapist.\n

I was lucky enough to receive a massage from Aya Painter, student of Alpha School of Massage. Aya was very perceptive to how I was feeling throughout the massage. She made me feel very relaxed and very comfortable. Before the massage, I had been feeling a lot of tension between my shoulder blades and my lower back. Aya really helped to relieve a lot of the tension and pain. She was also very knowledgeable. I do not just recommenced that you go see Aya. I insist. You are really missing out if you don't.

I received a massage by a student at Alpha, her name is Aya Painter.\nShe approached me in a very friendly, positive manner. Instructed me on changing for the massage and explained how to lie on the massage table. The massage that followed was both relaxing and therapeutic. I was very pleased with the flow and attention that Aya showed while giving me my massage. I really enjoyed the massage and felt totally awesome upon leaving the school. I would and have reccomended to friends and family to schedule their massage at Alpha and request Aya Painter. Thank you.\nLisa

Sure the school offers a great place for a great massage the students there for the most part are awsome and will go far in life. As for the Mgmt/Owners they suck they treat their students with constant disrespect. The students work hard only to get the jar of vaseline in the end. As for the tips Please dont leave any the students dont ever get any of it. They promise you the world you end up being their money maker These new students that write great reviews Ha!!! ask them again in about 5 months what they think Is the low fees worth the hastle definately not Again great for getting a Massage crappy place to learn You want your therapist to get the tip give it to them behind the curtain otherwise they will never see it

The Alpha School of Massage is an excellent place to get a good quality massage. I have been there on several occasions and have found it to be very professional and an excellent bargain compared to other massage parlors. My last massage was given by John Johnson and he was very professional and did a great job. Thanks John.... Ed

I love coming here for my massages! I have sent my mom and hubby here as well. It's a great massage for a great price. I know it's not ""perfect"" compared to the high priced places but I have the opinion that students need to learn hands-on and this is the perfect place for it. The students are absolutely ready for the work force!

I enrolled in Alpha School of Massage a month ago and can honestly say I feel I made the right decision. The staff are real knowledgeable and friendly and go out of their way to work with your schedule and to make sure you stay caught up with classwork and massage clinicals. I have already learned Swedish massage, Barefoot massage, and chair massage in just a month's time of being there! In addition to the flexible schedules and awesome staff, there is also a tuition waiver for the program! Whereas other schools in the area may charge $10-20,000 for tuition alone, Alpha waives their tuition for the 900 hour program, leaving my only expenses for books and supplies. Great place for general public to get massaged as well as we only charge $30 for a 1 hr massage....best deal in town for price AND quality!

Travel throughout the US and not always able to workout as much as I would like to. Now I have the next best option available - Amber at Alpha School of Message. The first words that I can come up with is unbelievable. It was hard for me to believe that she is a student and hasn't been helping people like myself for years. By far the best massage I have had EVER! The price really doesn't matter but at $30 for an entire hour - please. Not to mention the manager is as professional as you get. Thanks!!!

I am a graduate of Alpha School of massage, 900 hour class of 2008. When I heard on the local news that Alpha (the oldest and most respected school in Jacksonville) was waiving it's tuition I wasted no time signing up. It was the best decision I have ever made. I received an excellent education and a lot of hands on experience. It is a great school, the instructors are very knowledgeable and dedicated. Mr. Garcia really knows how to teach in a way that makes learning easy and fun. I shall be forever grateful and I love being a massage therapist. They changed my life and they can change yours too. Call them or stop by, you will be glad you did!

I am a graduate of Alpha School of Massage and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I have made.I had my doubts about the free tuition and kept thinking, what is the catch? I can assure you there is nothing more to it than that. FREE TUITION ??!! ARE YOU CRAZY?? DON'T PASS THIS UP!! Even to this day I still look back and am so THANKFUL for this opportunity of a life time. Don't be fooled by the building because it may be a little bit older than what I would have liked, considering I would be spending a good amount of my time there. Alpha School of Massage is truly a hidden gem that if you find it you will be amazed . Our instructor, Mr. Garcia is truly a gifted and well experienced and educated massage therapist who is not afraid to pass on his knowledge and skills. I learned so much from him and his class, I left with the skills and an abundance of knowledge ( of course there is still so much to learn ) to enter this field and grow and to become successful in this business. So if you are looking into massage schools, don't pass this one up! Heather Kota LMT MA65332

I have always believed in and have had a passion in the ability to promote better health naturally though massage therapy. I had previously checked out other schools and their tuition was way out of my league. I heard about Alpha School of Massage waiving the tuition and couldn't believe it. Well, I have recently graduated and I have to say that my journey here has been absolutely amazing. Both, the knowledge and experience I have gained is priceless. Don't let the free tuition fool you. The quality of teaching is amazing, interesting and fun. This school just believes every one should have the same opportunity to have a career through massage therapy. You will not only learn the basic relaxation massage, the barefoot technique, but also therapeutic techniques that help with relieving pain and stiffness from a headache to neck, back or shoulder problems. Some of the other things taught with the course are protocols to help those who suffer from Fibromyalgia, Tension / Migraine Headache, and Temporal Mandibular Joint ( T.M.J. ) Disorder.

I have always believed in and have had a passion in the ability to promote better health naturally though massage therapy. I had previously checked out other schools and their tuition was way out of my league. I heard about Alpha School of Massage waiving the tuition and couldn't believe it. Well, I have recently graduated and I have to say that my journey here has been absolutely amazing. Both, the knowledge and experience I have gained is priceless. Don't let the free tuition fool you. The quality of teaching is amazing, interesting and fun. This school just believes every one should have the same opportunity to have a career through massage therapy. You will not only learn the basic relaxation massage, the barefoot technique, but also therapeutic techniques that help with relieving pain and stiffness from a headache to neck, back or shoulder problems. Some of the other things taught with the course are protocols to help those who suffer from Fibromyalgia, Tension / Migraine Headache, and Temporal Mandibular Joint ( T.M.J. ) Disorder.

First of all:\r\n1. You will get your cert (probably) if you go here. And that's what really matters.\r\n2. In the areas of anatomy and physiology, and the technical aspects of massage, the instructors are top notch.\r\nBut:\r\n3. You'll get right about what you expect, for free tuition.\r\n\r\nIt's not completely free. You will pay $200 to sign up, and $100 a month. They say this is for enrollment fees and facilities expenses. \r\nBut you won't get any books for your money. And all you get for that $100 a month is free lotion and a place to study and do massages.\r\n\r\nA student's survivability here depends on how determined or thick skinned they are. The instruction is good, but the teachers tend to have more personality than professionalism. The rules change on a whim, are not documented at all, and fingerpointing is the norm. The instructors can be very endearing, but also very gruff, and you never know which flavor you're going to get, from day to day.\r\n\r\nIn the middle of the program, for example, a 100 hour unpaid internship was introduced. The details of which change from person to person, day to day, and this development has caused the morale to drop considerably. No one will get the okay to apply for their cert until they finish this internship, which is not a requirement by the state massage therapy board. \r\n\r\nSo take the other reviews with a grain of salt - the happy accolades stopped once the rules started changing randomly.\r\n

As a student @ Alpha School of Massage I highly recommend this school to anyone interested in this field. With many schools to choose from, I had several questions and concerns. When I called Alpha they were running a special program and they were waiving the $9000 tuition ! I must admit that greatly influenced my decision. When I came to Alpha, I found out it was the oldest massage school in Jacksonville. Our teacher is great and he has an abundance of knowledge he has shared with us. We have learned massage practices for : tension and migraine headaches, low back pain, fibromyalgia, tempormandibular joint dysfunction, and a barefoot deep tissue massage. We offer these to the public along with the swedish relaxation massage. We have also had the opportunity to go to local businesses and offer chair massages on the employees. This was alot of fun. I believe that this school is dedicated to the massage industry and they have a desire to see the students succeed and they are not here just to make money. I have enjoyed the classes and everyone I have met here. This has been one of the best decisions I have made.

I have been getting massage for several years now, and the massages that I get from the students at Alpha School of Massage are always great. In my opinion, they are just as good as the massages I have received from licensed therapists. Some of the massages that they offer can't even be found at most massage clinics or spas, such as their Barefoot Deep Tissue Massage. You can tell that the students want to please you and that they are really trying to give a good massage. I really enjoy the electric table warmer that makes the table toasty warm when I am on it. Not only do the massages feel wonderful, they are inexpensive, only costing $30 per hour. If you have never had a massage before, give this place a try, you'll be glad you did. If you get regular massage and pay $50, $60 or more per hour, schedule your next massage at Alpha and save some money. I'll bet you like their massages just as much as the more expensive ones. My hat's off to their instructors. I can usually call the same day or the day before to schedule my appointment and they are open Monday thru Friday. It's easier to get appointments in the morning, but I usually can get an appointment in the evening when I remember to call early enough. Don't know how I'd make it through the week without them!

Alpha School of Massage has a great 900-hour program that offers massage techniques, which most schools do not teach. Although, I have finished half of the program, there is still a lot, in which the instructors have to teach and that I have to learn. The instructors are very knowledgeable and are willing to help. At the end of the program, the majority of the students will have gained more experience then most, beginner LMT's.\r\n\r\nUpdate: The only reason most of the Ratings are 5 stars because the instructors had students write a review of the school. I would not recommend this school to anyone. The main instrutor makes up rules as he goes. More than half of the students dropped out of my class because of his rules and antics.

I am a student in the free tuition program. This program is teaching us so many aspects of massage therapy and our instructor makes it easy to learn and understand. Many students are starting a new career path, and some are recent graduations starting their first career. The school offers very affordable massages to the public, and they go way beyond just a standard Swedish relaxation massage, but that is also available if you prefer. You can come here regularly, its affordable, and just one way to take care of your body. Or enroll in the class yourself and learn how you can start a new career, or help people to feel better.
