I was military police for six years. I suffered an injury to my sciatic and at the time I needed to evaluate my future plans.
My father-in-law was living with my wife and I, and he has fibromyalgia. Whenever he had a flair up, I would massage the area and that gave him relief for 3-5 days.
From that moment I dedicated everything to massage. After I graduated, I worked full time, seeing 30-40 clients a week.
I then suffered another injury. This time I was diagnosed with Sicario -itis. I spoke with Mrs. Trina, the educator at Bellus in Manhattan, and he spoke with Mr. Yocum, the school director, and since physical therapy, I’ve been the night instructor for massage therapy at Bellus Academy.
I love every second of teaching. If it wasn’t for the amazing leadership, I don’t believe I would’ve taken that step into teaching, but they believed in me and from that moment it’s all been a blessing.
“The teachers were amazing! Without Bellus, I wouldn’t have the rewarding life I have today. School was something I looked forward to every single day. I can’t believe I have a job that I love going to every day.”
“For the past year I have been working on super-yachts in Spain as a massage therapist for billionaires and have loved every second of it! I don’t know what I would’ve done without Bellus’ training and expertise.”
“I love how hands-on the nail program is at Bellus. I am a visual and hands-on learner and I appreciated the time and focus on my advancement throughout the program. I would definitely recommend Bellus Academy to anyone interested in beauty and wellness education, especially the nail program!”
“The program and educators in Make-up Artistry are exceptional. The curriculum was so well designed that each day I couldn’t wait to get to school and begin the next step in learning high-end makeup. I feel very comfortable after taking this class to apply for a job anywhere in makeup, including a Hollywood studio, theater, photography or in a high-end salon and spa.”
“As a cosmo crossover, the Barbering Program was not only an excellent way to brush up on the basics, but also the best way to take my career to the next level. The staff was so helpful in every aspect and I highly recommend the program.”
