I was a massage therapy student in margate location last 5 months. Today is my last day and I just want to talk about Mr Marcoan Lee. He is the best sporting teacher I have ever had. First time in my life I was enjoyed all course and finished on time because of him. His knowledge, experiences, and personality also professional teaching skills made me successful. When you step in, his sport starts right away from first minute and last even after when you graduate. Not teaching you just a massage technique, anatomy kind of regular classes also he teach energy healing, mind and body works, healthy nutrients, yoga, reiki , sound healing and much more you can not find anywhere else. I want to talk about many value he added our career and even our life but no words can explain what he does. He is not just a teacher also he is a friend you would want to have rest of your life. Because current construction I had hard time to focus and adapt but he always supported. school going to be nicer than before when new spa center is ready. Absolutely recommend to everybody. Come here and change your life for better. You not gonna change just your career also you gonna change your life and mindset. Great experience so far.

The school still discovers the plan for studies, students, reconstruction of the school... a little confused about organizing things, old amenities, etc! But the teachers make the difference! I'm a massage therapy student, and Mr. Marco Lee, he has many skills, in energetic healing, such as a crystal bowl, reiki, massage in general! He explains and teaches very well! Only in college did I have some professors like him! And he's also a good human being! Everyone says the same thing!
