Track A | MASSAGE/BODYWORK SPECIALTIES

Once a rare experience, Massage has become a staple therapy and general lifestyle activity in today’s modern society. Massage gets us out of our heads and back into our bodies. It creates grounding, nourishes the soul and almost magically creates body relief from pains and stress. The highly qualified ICoHS Holistic Health Practitoner use almost any of the many styles of massage taught as appropriate to the needs of each client.

Track A focuses the student on being an expert in the field of Holistic Massage/Bodywork.
