  • "The school has changed me for the better in many ways and I'm truly grateful for it and all the new wonderful experiences and people in my life because of it. ICOHS, in many ways, helped me discover my worth as the amazing individual I am by surrounding me with the proper tools needed for my educational and personal growth. From knowledgeable teachers and staff members, to a loving and safe learning environment, ICOHS is an amazing school to attend for a potential career in Holistic Health."

  • "I began attending ICoHS in the fall of 2014 and it has truly been a life changing experience. I was going through a hard time in my life - I was not taking care of myself and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do but the school transformed me. I have learned so much about myself and the holistic field and in the process made friends that have become family and the best support system."

  • I would like to say THANK YOU for working with Be Relax San Diego on our recruitment for our 2 SPAs at the San Diego International Airport.

    We currently have 4 massage therapists (names removed for privacy) who graduated from School of Healing Arts that Veronica so graciously introduced to me.  I am absolutely thrilled by their work ethic and performance.  I have interviewed several other candidates and found School of Healing Arts Alumni to be superior. I am happy that we have built a strong and rewarding relationship that I hope lasts throughout our business lifetime.

    Keep up the good work in educating the future of Massage.

    Thanks again for all you do for us!

  • "I moved to Pacific Beach, San Diego about two years ago from the Northeast; I drove here from New Jersey and knew no one! The decision to try out this school was probably one of the best decisions I have made for myself; I've met a lot of wonderful, like minded people and reliable friends. This school is a little more than a school, it's like a healing community. I'm seeing that coming here set me on a positive life path."
