I am forever grateful to have found this school. I love the way the modules are laid out and how in-depth the courses are. I am learning so much and it does not even feel like work. Everything makes sense and is directly related to what I should be learning and not filled with ‘filler’ information that I do not need. From my own previous experience in holistic health, everything I am learning from CHH is supported, valid, and completely relevant. My entire family has become more and more supportive regarding what I am learning and practicing.

The learning really is at your own pace. This past year I have had a very stressful time personally, emergencies, etc… and CHH has been very understanding and always there if I need assistance. I feel like I am a person at CHH and not just a number. Nancy Barnes is extremely helpful and ready, willing, and able to help with any questions.

Thank you CHH

The Holistic Health Practitioner course offered by the College of Holistic Health is a comprehensive and flexible program.  The owner and founder of the school, Nancy Barnes is extremely supportive and provides immediate feedback.  The textbooks and supplemental materials are educational and an invaluable resource for future holistic work. The program includes an easy to understand process and many client contact hours.  I would highly recommend this program for its thorough content and flexible pacing.   Overall it is an excellent program and Nancy provides great guidance throughout the program.

This is a letter of recommendation for Nancy Barnes.

 When I first met Nancy, I was at one of the lowest points of my life.  My management position was eliminated with my employer of 25 years.  Since my profession dominated my life, this event was devastating.


I sought Nancy out, first for healing sessions and then later for attending her classes on alternative healing modalities and to help me explore other areas of my spiritual journey.  

As a teacher, Nancy took my hand, opened my mind and touched my heart.  As my coach, she helped me find ways to practice my new skills and encouraged me to continue my journey in Holistic Health.  She has guided me to a path to a happier, healthier life.

Sincerely, Margarete Z. MBA, Reiki Master


Nancy from College of Holistic Health has opened a whole new life for me. I have received great joy from her guidance. Her program compared to other schools is well rounded in all the holistic fields. I feel I have been given a lot for the price. Nancy is now coaching me to work with the new modalities.

My dad's physical health and my mother’s emotional health and physical have been a bit of a roller coaster the last 6 weeks and I've been taking care of them quite a bit.  


I am thankful for what I've learned thus far and being able to utilize Reiki and Chakra clearing and balancing with them both, as well as the strategies from the book on surviving your hospital stay.  My father was in the E.R. multiple times and thankfully survived 5 nights at the VA hospital in Asheville and is back at home recuperating from pneumonia, as well as some other issues.  

We look forward to being able to "buckle down" and get back to work this week. 


Thank you!




It has been a great learning experience and I have watched my family who thought Reiki was not a real thing turn into true believers who now ask me to provide sessions for them. I am loving it!


I am definitely planning on continuing to the next module and completing the HHP program.

Another letter from Diana while working on completing the HHP specialist program.

Hi Nancy,

I am absolutely loving the classes. I can't wait until I can sink my teeth into the new ones that have arrived. I just wanted to basically check in with you and make sure that it is okay that it may take me a little longer than the average student.

I am a teacher so am hoping to catch up a bit during our upcoming breaks and do quite a bit during summer.

Thank you so much for this opportunity. I not only love what I am learning but also the amazing products that come with each set of modules. I frequently refer to certain books for holistic remedies when I am sick, etc.

Thanks again,
Diane Briggs
