About us...

"touching lives"  massage © is a heart-centered, mindful approach that seeks to leverage the power of human touch to create lasting, positive changes and connections within communities. Our intention is to:

 

  • Raise awareness and appreciation of the diversity of authentic indigenous massage therapy techniques from around the globe.

 

  • Empower massage therapists to learn and incorporate these techniques within their practices, thereby preserving the authentic traditions. By learning new massage therapy modalities the therapists will be able to provide a new line of services for their clients to benefit from.

 

  • Establish "touching lives"  massage © massage therapy schools within communities of need, providing economic opportunity to marginalized individuals. These massage therapy schools may also provide training to international students on-site, allowing for unique, authentic, meaningful connections and experiences with the marginalized communities we seek to support and to serve.
