    For me, attending TSOM was one of the most amazing, life changing experiences. It has been three years since earning my license, and I now own a thriving private practice, where I get to do something I love every day – ease pain and lift spirits. And although I’ve been out of school for 3 years, I still meet with David and Cissie on a regular basis for business advice and mentoring.

    Is this program challenging? Yes. Do you need to be self-motivated in order to be successful? You absolutely do. But, if you are willing to do the hard work it takes to complete the program and take the state boards, then you’ll discover a career that is both fulfilling and fun.  – Jeanne Goddard, LMT  Owner Namaste Memphis

    Customer Reviews

    Tennessee School of Massage was such a great school experience for me! I loved everything about it, and really miss learning every day under Cissie and Madison. The small classes are perfect because it gave me the personal one on one learning I needed. It was very "hands on", and they WANT you to learn everything you can from them. They prepared me in many ways for my future, and the education I received here goes beyond massage: business & marketing, therapeutic touch, ear candling, body wraps...I definitely was not disappointed!

    This is a very good class. You not only learn everything about massage, you learn about life in general and how to take care of the bodies we have. Cissie and David Pryor are great teachers. They are the best!

    Anthony Mckinney - Student

    I am SO glad that I chose Tennessee School of Massage and Living Health.  Cissi's teaching is more extensive than I expected-I've been learning not only about massage but also about so many other natural ways of keeping up the body and mind, it's fascinating.  Even with so much to learn and so much group discussion, the atmosphere is relaxed and flexible, each student gets the one on one instruction he/she needs and is allowed to help the other students with their needs.  The class flows so well.  I have been there for 3 months now and for the life of me I can't figure out where the time has gone, or how I've come so far in that time. With tons of gratitude, Rchel Vandeven 🙂

    I am now a senior and have enjoyed attending classes and interning at TSOM. Cissie Preyer is well versed to teach the subject and can answer just about any question you can throw at her. You can learn both relaxing massage as well as therapeutic health related massage. I believe there is no better place in Memphis to invest your massage school dollars than Tennessee School of Massage. I send blessing to you and your future endeavors. 😉

    TN School of Massage really prepared me for work as a licensed massage therapist. The anatomy classes were taught in a way that wasn’t over my head, and I took a lot away from the classes. The class sizes were not over-crowded, which allowed me to have a great relationship with the instructors, have open and honest conversations during in-class discussions, & form great bonds and study groups with my classmates. I also got real-world, hands-on experience working in a boutique spa that is associated with the school, which allowed me to gain clientele feedback.
    I also learned additional skills that are not taught at other massage schools in the area.
    I highly recommend TN School of Massage if you are looking at a massage school within the area. The classes fully prepare you for the licensing exam, provide real experience, and teach other areas within our scope of practice not found at most massage programs in an environment that I enjoyed going to for school.
