Elements of Healing School of Massage started in 2004 as a 300 hour shiatsu program. It quickly
grew by demand to the current 625 hour practitioner training it is today. The foundation of this
bodywork program is to train students to become competent and compassionate practitioners of
the effective healing paradigm of Chinese medicine. With a strong and thorough study of western
anatomy and physiology along with pathology, students will be able to effectively communicate
with western practitioners as well.
It is our belief that healing happens within each individual. We all possess this capacity for
healing. Students will learn that as bodyworkers we merely facilitate healing for people.
Students learn how to create space for people to access their own healing potential with
unconditional positive regard. Asian Bodywork is a valuable healing therapy that is needed. It
is our mission to bring ABT to the forefront of the American health care systemTen Month Massage Training ProgramElements of Healing’s 600 hour/ten month certificate program teaches the fundamentals of Chinese Medicine within the context of two effectively therapeutic forms of massage.
Amma and Shiatsu are different in style, but equally powerful healing modalities. The program will also give students a strong foundation in western anatomy & physiology, pathology and kinesiology. This will give students the ability to work along side and communicate with western medicine practitioners.
This program offers a Certificate of Completion. Our school does not offer college credits, nor does it offer a degree at the commencement of the program. For national certification please refer to the sections in our catalog regarding the NCCAOM and NCBTMB. Massage is not a licensed profession in the state of Vermont. However, having national certification may have its benefits for employment opportunities.
