“NASI  has taught us enough in five months that has made me more enthusiastic about our new career in the field of Nail Technology. Thanks to our teacher Pat, who has dedicated her skills and training to teach us all that we know! Also the Reflexology training was outstanding, thank you once again Mr. Barry. I have never expected to be able to make so much money, working 3 days per week only  “

” I have graduated at NASI from the Esthetics program a few years ago. I can honestly say that the 11 months course was the best year of my life! I still miss the school. We were like family there. Not just their program is awesome, but also the instructors and director are wonderful people. They gave me a helping hand and support whenever I needed, and still if I need help they are there for me. So if you are thinking of attending one of their great program just go for it, you won’t be disappointed! It will give you a lifetime experience and prepare you to become a top Esthetician. Already at the state board we could feel the difference between us graduates of NASI and our level of preparation versus all other graduates from different schools. Also at the interviews everyone was always surprise how knowledgeable I was even though I just graduated from school. Of course with that being said, you know not only I was able to get a job right away but most importantly a job that I wanted ! .”

The New Age Spa Institute is an absolutely amazing school and clinic for Massage Therapy. I have known about the work they do for over four years before I enrolled and I have nothing but amazing things to say! The educators and administration team are comprised of a tremendous group of professional individuals who truly care about each student’s needs. NASI serves as an example for all others and I would highly recommend it as a center for education and also as a clinic to receive treatments. I am extremely proud to say that in my 2nd year as a Licensed Professional Massage Therapist I was able to make 6 figures in my field and I would never achieve it without education at NASI.

It was the best decision I ever made! The school has excellent qualified instructors, and the classes are not too big, which means you get lots of attention. I knew from the beginning I was in capable and good hands, although we did go through some hardship moments.  What really matters to me is that at NASI invaluable support and advice doesn’t end at the Graduation! Upon Graduation and passing my State Board Exam, NASI was able to connect me with the right employers, and I am happy to say that I am a “Breadwinner” that provides his family with a comfortable life. Thank you, Mr. Barry and Ms. Leslie for all of your tips and techniques!

“I am a recent graduate of New Age Spa Institute and I am very impressed with the teaching style of the Instructors at New Age Spa Institute . Our Instructors were extremely knowledgeable with exceptional presentation skills that inspired our group to learn. Their patience, understanding and simplification of the course material has enabled us to grasp the technical and practical applications with ease. I am so impressed with the overall look of the new facility, it is a great environment to learn in with constant positive reinforcement from the faculty, the staff and the clients we work on. Even though English is my second language within 1 week of graduation I was able to find a job at a very highly know medical spa.  I highly recommend this school ! ”

Coming to The New Age Spa Institute for my esthetics education was the best decision I have ever made. When starting out I thought I would be just learning a few things, passing some tests and getting licensed….well little did I know I would be walking out of this school knowing what I know now. From the first day to the last I learned something new each and every day. Our incredible instructors have had many years of experience in esthetics they knew exactly what it is that we need to know to be prepared for the real world. This school has become like family caring about their students and wanting us to excel in the world as estheticians.  Our instructors have fully prepared us with knowledge for the state boards…I am proud to say I just received my score of 98% from the state. I cannot wait to come back to New Age Spa Institute for continuing education and also hopefully as I have planned for CIDESCO. If you want a career in esthetics I have no doubt that you will learn everything you need to know in esthetics at The New Age Spa Institute!!!

The New Age Spa Institute exceeded my expectations !! As a licensed Cosmetologist I researched many schools before attending this one! I felt so fortunate to have had such passionate and dedicated instructors who really went above and beyond to provide us with a high level of education!! As part of our curriculum we received hands on training in Medical esthetics, 60 hour certification in Makeup and so much more !!!! I truly felt like the instructors and my classmates were like family!! We were so prepared and felt so confident that we all scored high 90’s on our State Board!!I currently am working and a Med Spa and love it! I know I will continue to cultivate these friendships!!
This school is truly the only school in IL to have the Cidesco Accreditation !! Thank You Monika, Ania, Timea and Lisa for being the very best educators!!!!!!

I just recently graduated from The New Age Spa Institute. For a long time I did not think I can further myself in any kind of education until I signed up for the esthetics program here. For me it was challenging but with the help of my teachers and fellow students they pushed me and motivated me. I thought I would never understand all that was being taught to me. Believe me  there is a lot to learn. I made it though, I graduated and just recently passed my stateboard with flying colors. My instructors never doubted me and I thank them for that. I have already found a job. After my employer reviewed my certificates from school, I was hired instantly. I can only thank The New Age Spa Institute for my new found love for esthetics. I have no regrets, my advice to anybody looking for a great career in esthetics….The New Age Spa Institute is school to go to!

I recently graduated from the New Age Spa Institute. This school gave me a great education in Esthetics. The educators of the school are great people. They helped through every part of the journey to make sure that the students were performing at the very best in all areas. I am so glad that I made the choice of going to this school. I am definitely going back to see everyone there for continuing education.

The New Age Spa Institute is a “SEE” school – Superb, Exceptional, Extraordinary!! I researched several Esthetic schools before finally choosing the New Age Spa Institute. I found all the instructors to be extremely knowledgeable, patient with the students and passionate about esthetics. The curriculum is extensive and covers a range of subjects that more than prepares students for the field of esthetics. When I talk with other students from other schools and compare the differences, I am always so proud of being a New Age Spa graduate. I know that I am equipped with the best education for this particular discipline – from basic esthetic knowledge to specific technical esthetics, from medical esthetics to make-up mastery, from strict adherence to hygiene procedures to business development, from product knowledge to ingredient knowledge, from basic equipment to state-of-the-art equipment – The New Age Spa Institute offers it all!

I attended The New Age Spa Institute after I had already been working in the nursing field for many years. I didn’t want to stay at my current job because I didn’t enjoy it anymore and it didn’t give me the chance to help people like I wanted to. I am so happy that I finished my esthetics program and received my license. I have the chance to help people and build lasting relationships with clients who depend on me. Within the last 6 months alone, I’ve made double income than what I used to make and have a flexible schedule so I can spend time with my son. Thank you New Age Spa Institute!

Overall my experience at New Age Spa Institute in their Nail Technology Program was great. I absolutely loved my teacher Ms. Pat! She did such an amazing job in teaching us. However, I did not like that we had to share her with the other Nail Tech. class ;). It was an exciting time, I have learned a lot and made new friends. We had so much fun! Everything at school was positive and a great experience for me. Thank you Ms. Pat, you made our class fun and interesting. I really appreciate it and I am happy to say I passed state board exam 🙂 and I am now working in a Salon!

I did a lot of research prior to making my choice in esthetics education, and I’m so glad I chose the New Age Spa Institute. Upon graduation, I felt very confident and prepared to enter my first job as an Esthetician. I knew I still had a lot to learn in the “real world,” but I was excited to get out there and get started! After a lot of hard work and networking, I landed my dream job in a beautiful spa in downtown Chicago. They were reluctant at first to hire someone just out of school, but I convinced them to take a chance after demonstrating how much I already knew! Today, I’m earning more than I actually thought was possible in this career, and couldn’t be happier. I have NASI to thank for that!

Graduated 2015

I completed the accelerated Nail Technology summer program at the New Age Spa Institute. I was amazed that I was able to start my career in as little as 11 weeks. I left feeling prepared for the state boards and passed with an A the first time! Miss Pat was always willing to go above and beyond to help me learn what I needed. I was able to stay late some nights for additional one on one help. She works extended hours which makes it easy to find time to come in to see her. I am the owner of my own salon so I am happy to say that it has been a great decision to add nail services on my menu and it is paying off with tons of customers!

The New Age Spa Institute gave me the knowledge and experience I was looking for. I learned to use the newest spa equipment with hands on training. The instructors gave me the one-on-one I needed, they were always available if I had any questions. After completing school I received a two job offers right away! Thank you New Age Spa Institute for helping me obtain the skills I needed to help me become a better skin care professional.
Reyna A- Chicago, IL

Graduated 2014

My name is Reyna A, I graduated from New Age Spa Institute in April of 2014 as a nail technician. I want to express how great I think this school is. When I first started researching schools, I thought I would be taught how to apply acrylic nails, but the things I learned, from the chemistry to the art, are priceless. Part of the reason why I think my experience at New Age was so pleasant is because of the teacher I had, Ms. Pat. Ms. Pat is a very knowledgeable, patient, and skilled teacher. If I had to do it all over again, I would not think twice of picking the same school and same teacher. I used the knowledge that I gained in school to open my own business and with how successful I have been, I could not be happier.
Melissa A- Chicago, IL

Graduated 2013

I took both the Nail Technology and Massage Therapy Program at the New Age Spa Institute. When I decided to go into the beauty industry, I knew that I had to be versatile to be successful which is why I chose to do two programs instead of one. It was hard work but I was trained by instructors who actually work in their field as professions so they didn’t just teach me dry theory but they also gave me interesting tips and tricks that I could use when I graduated school. The curriculum of both programs is very thorough and I learned not only by hearing classes but also by seeing demos, practicing hands on, and working on real clients. I learned so much that I was able to find a job right after finishing school and passing my state boards. I am earning more than I ever thought was even possible and I LOVE MY LIFE. Thank you New Age Spa Institute- I can’t thank you enough for helping me have a beautiful life!

I am really glad I choose the New Age Spa Institute to study nail technology. The facilities are top notch, the classes were a good size, and Miss Pat, my instructor, was an incredibly knowledgeable and supportive teacher. I am grateful for having the opportunity to learn from her experience and wisdom. I could not have picked a better place to prepare for passing my nail tech exam! I am proud to say I am my own small business owner thanks to New Age Spa Institute!

I HIGHLY recommend this school. I am a graduate of The New Age Spa Insititute. When going for our state boards and meeting students from other schools, we knew we were the best prepared of all. We all passed with the highest of scores. I am now the confident owner of my own Skin Care Spa and couldn’t be happier. The staff goes beyond the norm to help their students AND graduates achieve their goals. I look forward to Continuing Education Classes because I know I’ll be taught the by the best educators in the industry. LOVE this school and it’s staff!

As the end of 2015 approached, I look back on this year and am so thankful that I attended The New Age Spa Institute for my Clinical Massage Therapy Program. Going back to school after not being a student for about 20 years was scary and I almost didn’t do it but I am so happy I did! I visited a few other schools when I was considering going to school and some other school tours were impersonal and rushed. I didn’t feel like they were actually concerned about me and I was just another number. The New Age Spa Institute made me feel so comfortable when I came in for a tour though. I was especially nervous about going to school because I did not have good credit and on top of learning a difficult subject, I didn’t know how I was going to pay for school. The New Age Spa Institute’s payment plans took a lot of pressure off me financially and made going to school possible. The classes are also AWESOME! They are laid out to cover each topic in depth and review a lot so even though it was hard, I was able to easily understand what we were learning. Now I am proud to say that I am in a financially stable place with a career I love (and good credit). I also recently moved to another state and I was able to find a job right away thanks to my knowledge and training from The New Age Spa Institute!

New Age Spa Institute has 5 star reviews by both our students and our clients.
