The program taught me how to be more present and about how challenges in life can be overcome as well as how important “balance” is in life. I learned valuable skills including more awareness and presence with others and myself, to listen, caring, understanding, as well as much about the human anatomy, science, pathology and learning about all the important muscles and the places where clients are hurting.

Massage is a second career for me, and the choice to attend school did not come easily. I left my previous job — indeed entire career, relocated, and became a student again in my mid-30′s. I had an inkling that there just might be something to massage and bodywork that would help me feel more grounded in my own life, not to mention being a healing influence in others. And my instincts were gratified! To be frank, I wish my master’s degree had been as hands-on and concise as my 7 months at Mountain Meadows Massage. I am three months into my new career path, and I feel incredibly well-prepared. I know I have a lot more to learn in the massage and bodywork field, but the training I got with Mountain Meadows was an excellent grounding in the elements of this field.

Throughout the year I learned probably more about myself and also remembered things that I had forgotten thereby making it one of my best memories.
