Massage was introduced to America in the early 1900s.  Back then, it was often associated with prostitution.  Today, massage is one of the foremost healing therapies in Mind-Body medicine and the field of Psychoneuroimmunology.  Massage is used together with allopathic medicine in some of the top Integrative Medical hospitals in the United States, including John Hopkins hospital and the Mayo Clinic. Massage has extensive evidence for enhancing immune response and reducing stress, for creating wellness and for reducing illness.  Students will explore the science of massage, learn diverse massage techniques, and also personally experience massage as a tool for health and wellness.  Reflexology, Swedish and Thai traditions will be the main focus of investigation.
