Welcome to Sacred Bodywork!
Open spaces for personal and professional growth and enhance your touch. Go beyond technique and explore the possiblity of healing mind, body and spirit. Here is our special invitation to join us in our mission: To share and expand the circle of Aloha and Metta to encompass the world.
Sacred Bodywork offers massage continuing education seminars, residential and non-residential retreats in the USA, Europe and Thailand and workshops for spas, healing arts centers, massage therapists, personal trainers yogis and bodyworkers who wish to add a new dimension to their work. Our approach follows the Eastern belief that we are all beings of energy with physical form. Purely mechanical work only treats one aspect of the whole; therefore, truly transformational work must address the energetic being, as well. In all of our workshops, regardless of technique, we teach students to work with energy to make their work even more effective. If you are looking for a certification and NCBTMB, Florida or Louisiana State massage continuing education hours for re-licensing, we will provide you the opportunity to learn and practice in one of our massage and bodywork intensive programs.
Get the massage continuing education hours you need to renew your NCBTMB, Florida State and/or Louisiana State license while adding these sacred arts to your skills.
