West Meets East

Our annual Massage Therapy Winter Symposium offers you professional growth and exceptional value – all while networking with your colleagues, classmates and mentors. This year's West Meets East gathering serves as the first step for many of us to understand and recognize one's own unique wellbeing.

As we focus on energy patterns and meridians in the upper body, you'll learn both preventative and recovery-based treatments while cultivating and embracing Eastern pilosophy.

Enjoy a spectacular event, including the opportunity to:

  • Earn 13.5 hours of continuing education for just $189
  • Learn about Shiatsu yoga techniques, an innovative self-care technique, from Shinzo Fujimaki
  • Be introduced to the philosophy, theory and practice of Eastern medicine
  • Find out about Chinese food therapy and the neuroscience of meridian channels
  • Practice hands-on techniques and learn new ideas to use in your practice immediately
  • Observe an anatomical dissection in an optional cadaver lab session
  • Visit with vendors offering products and services that can help your practice flourish
