Body Wisdom Is The Difference That Makes A Difference. The Body Wisdom Massage Therapy School & Spa, located in Des Moines, IA, is dedicated to taking a leading role in bringing the massage therapy profession to the level of a true holistic healing art. We are fully accredited with the State of Iowa, The Iowa Massage Board, the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association), and the National Certification Board as a recognized massage therapy education provider. The vision of the Body Wisdom School is to bring the profession of massage therapy and bodywork to the level of fully integrated healing arts. We teach complementary healing modalities that reduce pain, promote wellness, and address all levels of the whole person: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. The philosophy of the Body Wisdom School is based on the guiding principle of wholeness and the inner healer. We believe that every physical imbalance is the result of lack of wholeness on one or more levels of the body, mind, emotions, or spirit, and that each individual has an innate connection to their inner healer that can guide their healing process. We believe that massage and bodywork are powerful vehicles for healing, awareness, and engaging the whole person through a synthesis of structure, function, energy, and emotion. All the classes at the Body Wisdom School emphasize whole-body learning in an experiential learning environment that is relaxing, dynamic, and highly effective. In addition to outstanding professional skills, we place equal emphasis on the personal development and growth of our students as the basis for facilitating others. We invite you to explore your participation with us as a client, full time student, or in one of our workshops or intensives. Call or visit us today.
