“My teachers were passionate, nurturing, and caring, and had real-world experiences in the field of massage therapy.”
Faith Novaco had a college degree in radio broadcasting, but she soon discovered that she did not enjoy the competitive environment that she found in the field of radio advertising. Not sure what to do next, she began working in a day care center, but the pay was not good. “I put so much energy into my work, and I didn’t think that the compensation I received was equal to the work I put in,” Faith explained.
Faith’s husband Brian had once taken a few massage therapy courses, and suggested that Faith look into this field. Faith took his advice and liked what she learned. As a result, she decided to enroll in the Massage Therapy program at Branford Hall Career Institute in Branford, CT.
Faith enjoyed her time at Branford Hall, and she credits the positive experience to all of her instructors. “The teachers at Branford Hall were very skilled in massage therapy, and they showed that they cared about the students. They were nurturing, encouraging, and had a true passion for massage therapy,” Faith remembers.
After she completed the massage therapy program at Branford Hall, Faith became a Nationally Certified Licensed Massage Therapist. Shortly thereafter, she accepted a rewarding position at the Water’s Edge Resort and Spa in Westbrook, CT. She was able to use the skills she learned at Branford Hall while providing deep tissue, prenatal, Swedish, and hot stone massages, as well as spa body treatments and aromatherapy.
Faith says that her decision to go back to school has improved her life dramatically. “I love my career and have a passion for massage therapy. I am earning the pay I deserve, and my career possibilities have expanded,” she said.
What Faith says about Branford Hall: Faith loved the instructors at Branford Hall. She says, “My teachers were passionate, nurturing, and caring, and had real-world experiences in the field of massage therapy.”
