“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that...because what the world needs is people who come alive!”

It is the intent of the Sedona School of Massage to provide a comprehensive
education in massage therapy that speaks to the whole person. We view
massage as a tremendous vehicle by which one can become more fully
embodied, awake and aware. In this full immersion, awareness oriented
program, the students have the opportunity to develop the knowledge and
skills necessary to become excellent therapists, while becoming more fully
present in their own lives.
In today's market, massage has become an important part of the healthcare
delivery system. Millions of people are turning to more natural, drug-free
means of discovering greater health and well-being. We have found the
potential of massage to be much more than relaxation, having systemic
effects and influencing the body/mind on all levels. At the Sedona School
of Massage we focus on some of the most effective and profoundly
transforming bodies of work known in the field today. This is a program that is well grounded
in linear information and excellent technique. We believe that anyone can
learn anything if it captures their interest, and we have found the study
of anatomy, physiology and kinesiology to be very rewarding.
We are also aware that to be in the business of touching people it is
essential that the therapist be in touch with her or himself. Bodywork can
be quite evocative and many therapists find themselves challenged beyond
what they feel they are capable of dealing with in a skillful way. We
explore these issues within the class and provide a space in which to
cultivate skills for working with self and others. Throughout the program
we integrate simple awareness practices, communication exercises and work
with language. These practices, along with being touched everyday, are a
powerful formula for opening the body and opening the being who lives
inside the body.
So, in the spirit of inquiry, please join us as we look deeply into, Anatomy and Physiology, Kinesiology, movement, massage and human potential!
