It’s time to once again recognize one of our amazing students! This month, we’d like to congratulate Jacob Eich for being our Student of the Month at our Syracuse location. We’ve loved having the opportunity to see Jacob develop skills in an industry that he’s so passionate about. Read more to learn about Jacob and why he decided to begin an education in massage therapy!
While Jacob was chosen as our Student of the Month for multiple reasons, one of his qualities that stuck out to us was his dedication to school and learning all that he can. Before enrolling in our massage therapy program, Jacob was a student at the State University of New York College (SUNY) at Cortland. After learning more about the human body, he decided to pursue an education dedicated to massage therapy so he could learn how to help people with their health and wellness.
When we asked what’s one of his favorite parts about the massage industry, he said that he loves that he’s able to have a lasting impact on helping people with their health in such a direct way. We are so excited to hear that Jacob was able to continue his passion for learning and helping others at our school!
Experience in Massage Therapy School
Jacob said that he chose to study here after hearing our alumni talk about their experience with our instructors and curriculum. In the massage industry, we know that it’s extremely important to know that you have a support system who can encourage you and help you become better at something you love.
We’re happy to hear that both our current and past students have created a community that helps people like Jacob feel welcomed. In fact, Jacob says that the close community of massage therapists is his favorite part of the industry. He loves that everyone around him all work towards the same goal of helping people feel better. At Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage (OSTM) we work hard to make sure everyone feels included in our family. Since joining us, Jacob has become an important member of our school!
Future in Massage
With Jacob’s work ethic and passion for helping others, we can’t wait to see what he’s able to accomplish in the massage therapy industry. When we asked where he gets the inspiration to keep going after his dreams, he said that he’s inspired by the people who always fight for what they most want to achieve and don’t let anything stand in their way. We see that hard-working attitude so much in Jacob, which is why we know that he’s become a great example of what a student at our school should be!
Jacob plans to keep learning all about different massage techniques so he can inspire people to make a change for themselves. As part of our program, students have the opportunity to practice what they’ve learned on real clients. After watching Jacob interact with clients and seeing how much he’s improving in multiple massage techniques, we know that he’ll continue to be an amazing addition to the industry!
