My husband and I have been getting massages through CenterPoint for two years. We have never had a bad experience or a bad massage. The students have been professional, polite, and well-educated. I would highly recommend this experience to others.

I went to Centerpoint last weekend and had my first Shiatsu massage. I arrived feeling anxious and tense and left feeling like relaxed but somehow simultaneously energized. The student was kind and gentle, applying just the right pressure at just the right points, and created a comfortable environment for my first visit. The only thing that made it less than perfect (and by no fault of the student) occurred when the instructor entered my session abruptly and unannounced, failing to introduce himself and then proceeding to tell the student the type of treatment I was to receive as if I wasn't there. However, the student handled this interruption gracefully and pardoned the interruption, once again putting me at ease. I would absolutely recommend Centerpoint to anyone who feels comfortable in and supports a teaching and learning environment. For the combined experience and the price, I'll definitely be going back!

Centerpoint treats their clients with the greatest respect and privacy. It isn't a huge school so you don't feel lost in the shuffle.
They do outreach projects for non-profits and they touch they give is felt 10 fold by the families and friend of those they have carried for.
I am a current student as well as a client in their student clinic. They do an amazing job of dealing with their students and with the clients that come in through their program. They deal with every situation as quickly as possible and since they are dealing with human beings, problems will arise with students becoming ill or not being able to make appointments. That is just how things work in the real world.
I would encourage everyone I know to go to their student clinic and help a student learn the amazing art of massage plus receive a massage by a highly trained future professional.

I contacted this school around Dec. 13th to schedule a "Stress Buster" Friday for our 30+ employees. I thought bringing in chair massages would be a nice treat during the busy Holiday season. I was put in touch with the school "Manager", Michael Casper and together we scheduled the event for Fri. Dec. 28th. This in itself proved to be difficult because it was during their Holiday Break but everything seemed to be set. OR SO I THOUGHT!The morning of the 28th, 3 hours before the event was to begin, I got a call from Dona (The person who was to supervise the 2 students we had booked) saying one of the students backed out so they were down to just one student. That did me no good. There was no way one student was going to be able to handle our entire group. Michael Casper was out on vacation and Dona was trying to reach him. After speaking with Dona it was decided to reschedule the event for the following Fri. (Jan. 4th). I did get to speak with Michael and he told me they have had this problem with this particular student before. WHY WOULD THEY LET THIS STUDENT COMMIT TO A CORPORATE EVENT IF THEY HAVE A TENDENCY OF NOT SHOWING UP?! I had to scramble to get lunch brought in for our employees, which was a poor substitute for massages.Today is Thurs., Jan 3 and I called Michael today, even though he was supposed to contact me YESTERDAY (Wed, Jan 2) as to the status of things. Upon speaking with him he told me that they weren't able to accommodate us. He did not offer to try another reschedule or any other way of making this right. Now, once again I am left to find yet another substitute for our employees. To say I'm displeased is a HUGE UNDERSTATEMENT! After all of the stress this place has caused me I REALLY do need a massage but I WILL NOT be contacting them because it is obvious they don't have to means of taking care of their clients. I don't even feel good about giving them a one star rating but that's the minimum I could give them.

I tried to schedule a couple of students to come to our business and give chair massages to our employees as part of our "Stress Buster" Fridays in the month of December. I was in contact with the schools "Manager", Michael Casper who worked with me to get this event scheduled for Fri. Dec.28. This in iteself proved to be a challenge because the students were on Winter Break but everything seemed to be set. OR SO I THOUGHT! That morning, 3 hours before the event was to begin I got a call from the students supervisor saying one of the students was not able to attend. One student would not have been enough to handle all of the employees. The supervisor and I agreed it would be best to reschedule the event for the following Friday (Jan. 4)Michael was on vacation but I did manage to get ahold of him and he told me they have had this problem before with this particular student cancelling or not showing up. WHY WOULD THEY LET THIS STUDENT COMMIT TO A CORPORATE EVENT WHEN THEY'VE HAD PROBLEMS IN THE PAST?! I had to scramble to bring in lunch for our employees which was a poor substitute for massages. Now here we are on Jan. 3 and although Michael was supposed to contact me YESTERDAY I called him to see where we were at for our rescheduled event. He told me they were unable to accomodate us. He made no attempt to reschedule again or give any other options to make this right. Now once again I am left to find yet another substitute for our employees. To say I'm disappointed is a HUGE UNDERSTATEMENT! This has made me look bad in the eyes of our company president and our employees. With all the stress this has caused I'm the one who REALLY needs a massage but I WILL NOT be contacting them because it is obvious they don't have the knowledge it takes to provide good customer service. I don't think they deserve even one star but that's the minimum.

Pros: Quick to plan

Cons: VERY unreliable, no follow through, POOR customer service
