Touchstone Healing Arts School in Vermont
Touchstone Healing Arts School in Vermont shares this with GreatMassageSchools.com
With the seemingly, ever-increasing pace of our lives, and the unpredictable nature of this turbulent planet, isn't it reassuring to know that there are places that offer respite from the storm? There are myriad teachings from time-honored traditions that provide practical skills and offer effective treatments for managing our varying degrees of tension and stress.
Here at Touchstone we have such a place; a light and plant-filled, warm and comfortable environment surrounded by ample parking and conveniently located amidst the busy "real world". Through four areas of focus, we hold the intention of truly embracing the holistic path to health and wellness.
Our school offers a 10-month experience of self-exploration and deep learning to provide students with all the skills needed to confidently step into the role of massage practitioner, a professional who is able to contribute to the work of spreading calm, ease and peace throughout the world.
Give yourself or someone you know the gift of therapeutic massage. Come and experience professional massage therapy from practitioners trained to exceed the national level requirements for therapeutic massage. We will tailor a session to suit your needs and offer a variety of effective styles and treatments given in beautifully appointed rooms that truly enhance this rejuvenating and relaxing experience.
Ease into a regular yoga practice in an inviting and convenient location with experienced and supportive teachers to guide you.
Offering enriching experiences for body, mind and spirit, our workshops are held throughout the year and are lead by experts in their field.
These are indeed changing times with more and more people searching for alternatives to mainstream approaches to health and wellness. The paradox is that the massage profession is becoming increasingly part of the mainstream as people discover its value. As this happens of course, the demand for this work grows and the need for furthering education increases.
Touchstone Healing Arts School of Massage was founded in the Fall of 1998 and with each passing year the program continues to strengthen as we fine tune our course offerings. It is both an honor and a privilege to be able to share the knowledge of this work with others. We have designed our program to balance academic and practical work with personal growth experiences, for we believe that massage isn’t just a profession, it’s a way of life.
We want to bring holistic healing back to the individual and massage is the form that we have found for that expression. We can only change ourselves and through that act, change the world.
May you never be the same again!

A focus will be placed on cultivating the sensitivity of the practitioner through the practice of Qi Gong, meditation, and proper body mechanics. This will help emphasize rooting and cultivating internal energy to prevent fatigue of the practitioner.
Amma II (applied amma massage)
The client is usually fully clothed, lying or sitting on a mat or futon on the ground. The practitioner utilizes hands, fingers, elbows, knuckles, knees and feet. There is no forceful pressure; all is done with gravity and body mechanics. What develops is a practice of self-healing and self-awareness where both giver and receiver feel refreshed and stretched.
