“Deliberately Saturating the ART of Bodywork with Consciousness”
First and foremost, we at the Berkana Institute of Massage Therapy are on a crusade to remind everyone that Massage Therapy is an art form. Massage Therapy is not a technical skill in itself, and only utilizes technique as one tool along with many other cultivated skills in order to meet the needs of our clientele and express the art of bodywork in a fluid and creative way. Mindfulness, compassion, personal skills, intuition, humor, courage, respect, scientific knowledge of the human body, and a dash of awe are but some of the essential ingredients necessary to begin to explore the potential of being a fulfilled bodywork artist, who is making a positive impact on the world at large. The Berkana Institute of Massage Therapy is dedicated to cultivating professional, competent, and compassionate bodywork artists. We believe that the “cream rises to the top”, and that to be the cream, you must consistently do your very best.
