What makes Diamond Light School of Massage and Healing Arts, unique? Why should someone choose you?
Our uniqueness lies in our emphasis on Bodywork as a spiritual art. In additional to learning state of the art massage techniques and receiving an education that will enable them to begin a lucrative career as a Massage therapist, our students are taught to explore the deeper potential of bodywork as a catalyst to facilitate spiritual awakening and profound levels of healing in the client as well as the practitioner. Though we don't advocate any particular spiritual teaching, our classes take place in a meditative environment that encourages cultivation of subtle inner awareness and deep presence. We also advocate experiential learning and personal attention where each student is worked with individually to assure mastery of the techniques taught. Proper ergonomics and the well being of the practitioner are also emphasized so that the practice of massage becomes an ecstatic experience for the therapist as well as the client

What is your philosophical approach to massage?
We believe that massage therapy has the potential to provide healing that extends beyond the physical body and that skilled touch can create a doorway to deep healing on the physical, emotional , mental and spiritual levels. We believe that the state of consciousness and quality of touch of the practitioner deeply influences the potential for healing and that cultivation of presence, unconditional compassion and meditative awareness are an indispensable component of bodywork training.
