There is a growing interest in the United States in Chinese Medicine, Asian Bodywork, holistic health, and energy based healthcare. As the focus on wellness grows, the role of Asian bodywork will only continue to grow. This new program, currently the only one of its kind in Atlanta, will prepare you to work in the field of preventative care, illness care and wellness care. It will emphasize Asian Bodywork, but graduates will have met the basic requirement for licensure as Massage Therapists in Georgia.
Like Therapeutic Massage, Asian Bodywork Therapy is so gentle and effective that it can be useful to clients at any age and state of health. Just as Massage Therapists are “muscle experts,” Asian Bodywork Therapists are “energy experts.” Both can help their clients by relieving pain and creating balance. The program will be a comprehensive blend of Eastern and Western techniques including Acupressure, Tuina, Medical Qigong, and TaiChi, as well as Western modalities; Swedish Massage and Touch for Health. The main categories in the curriculum are:
Oriental Medicine- covers basic diagnosis of energetic imbalances
Asian Bodywork Therapy- Acupressure, Tuina, Qigong, and Taichi. Western Sciences- anatomy, physiology, and pathology
Western Bodywork- Swedish Massage, Touch for Health
Personal and Professional Development- personal growth, self-care, ethics, and business
Clinical Practice- students practice on the public.
The curriculum is designed to prepare graduates for advanced standing in Acupuncture school programs, if they have the requisite college training. Combining both western and eastern systems gives you the best of both worlds.
