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.

As a Massage Therapist how many times have your clients come to you with dietary questions or concerns?
In his latest of several literary works, Dr. Scarfalloto focuses on nutrition and is able to condense tons of knowledge, along with years of experience, into his in-depth yet user friendly and easy to understand "Nutrition for Massage Therapists". Primarily for the benefit of MT's and their clients, there is an abundance of information that would serve to enhance the practice, efficiency, and results of not only the MT but of any motivated healthcare practitioner. It is important to mention that this book is not only valuable to this particular audience, however. The information within is presented in a fashion that makes the fundamentals of nutrition understandable even to those who have no previous familiarity with the subject. Dr. Scarfalloto does this by giving a concise description of the nutrients that may be found in our diets including the role that they play in our health and well-being, a branch of wisdom that is far too commonly overlooked in our society.
As a tool for self-education for the MT or any other practitioner, this work is irreplaceable and quite original in its focus. With emphasis in three areas: Self-care for the therapist, clinical application, and review of anatomy and physiology , the knowledge contained within this book can bring you and your practice to the next level. As a massage therapist, if you are interested in nutrition for the purpose of improving your personal health and enriching your practice, Dr. Scarfalloto's latest book is a must read.
