East-West Healing Arts Institute And Accupressure School in Madison Wisconsin

East-West Healing Arts Institute is built on the premise that body, mind, and spirit form an interconnected, inseparable system, and that true healing can only take place when all three are addressed. That's why our logo is made up of the Chinese characters for these three concepts: body, mind, and spirit. Therapeutic massage and bodywork has been used for thousands of years as a powerful tool for healing, and can have a profound effect on the whole being of both the client and the practitioner.

Through the commitment and extraordinary experience of highly qualified instructors and through techniques that have proven effective healing agents over the centuries, this school is dedicated to training each student to integrate and utilize their entire being in helping others.

In practical terms, by employing structured learning sessions along with clinical experience, the student is able to practice treating patients while learning a professional demeanor and attitude.

The purpose of our institution is to assist students in broadening their knowledge of the diverse massage techniques available and to teach students to complement modern western medical knowledge with traditional eastern techniques.

What makes East-West Healing Arts Institute unique? Why should someone choose you?
Here at East-West Healing Arts Institute, students learn to build a truly holistic massage, developing expertise in TuiNa (Chinese medical massage) as well as in Western massage.

What is your philosophical approach to massage?
Everyone is unique and must be treated as so in order to enhance their healing process. Our philosophical approach to massage is to treat each body individually according to age and specific condition. We also believe that treating the emotional and mental health and well-being of a person is just as important as treating the actual, physical body. By doing this, students truly succeed in healing the mind, body and soul together as a whole.
