The Spirit Massage is a gentle stress relieving massage designed to quiet the mind and get the client in touch with own inner healing rhythms.

This course integrates Lymphatic Drainage, Guided Imagery, Energy Balancing, Myofascial Release and Swedish Massage. Benefits include stress relief, deep relaxation, and increased mental, emotional and spiritual clarity.

Perform this routine on receivers who are stressed, scattered, or in emotional turmoil. Gentle, energy-based techniques, coupled with guided imagery, induce a meditative state where excessive mental 'noise' is quieted and a sense of inner balance and harmony is attained.

This video also includes a 5 minute Kundalini Yoga routine for the practitioner.

I really enjoyed the course. I am currently practicing at a rehabilitation center for mentally ill residents. I found the course to be very helpful in my particular practice. The residents responded well to the techniques used, and overall achieved a sense of well-being. Great course!!


I love the elements and flow of the spirit massage! I am experiencing a more profound healing connection with my clients than ever before. Thank you for this wonderfully refreshing integrative approach!


This course met all my expectations and will be useful in my practice. I can't wait to take another in this series! The information was clear and to the point. The video was easy to follow in my practice sessions.

Your course materials and testing style is wonderful--thank you! Took longer than it should have because of my 4 month old, but, all good :)

Liv Rodriguez, CMT, NCTMB

The DVD is amazing. The reading was very straight forward. THANK YOU!!!

Lorin Loomis, LMT

I actually watched the video first. It allowed me to see how detailed and thorough the spirit massage is (which I like). I then read through the course material. I printed the test and then went back through the text while answering the questions. I passed the test but now I am actually going to practice the spirit massage on family (husband and kids) until I feel comfortable integrating the spirit massage into my practice. Thank you for providing such a thorough piece of work!

Erica Vinson, LMT, NCTMB

Very in-depth class. I enjoyed the video and the workbook was full of good information. Some of it was a review and some of it was new. I will definitely take the other integrative massage classes that go with this one!

Martha Smythe, LMT

Very pertinent content. Video is extremely helpful.

Gail Bannister, LMT

One of the best courses that I have taken so far. I hope that you also provide the other two courses: Fire and Earth Massage. Fabulous.

Susan Hernandez, CMT, NCTMB

Nicely done, i will be ordering again. Thank you.

Rebecca Melnik, LMT

Excellent course however I already practice a great deal of the content but did learn a couple things I didn't practice in my massage.

April Whiting, LMT

This was a wonderful course and enlightened me to the importance of being prepared on a energy level to give bodywork to my clients and will enhance my practice it was a great learning experience

Rhonda Kelly, LMT, NCTMB

I enjoyed reading thru the course material. I have studied a blend of modalities in the past and this course brought them all together. The DVD enhanced the course. A style I will use often with my own. Awesome!!!

Phyllis Magers, LMT, NCTMB

Love having DVD's to show presentations.

Veronica Schenk-Osmera, LMT, NCTMB

My clients have found this massage very relaxing.

Gloria Pimentel, CMT

I enjoyed this course very much!!

Eleanor Larkin, LMT, RM

This course has inspired me to go more in depth in Lymphatic Drainage training.

Jessica Moreton, LMT, NCTMB

I like learning new ways to use the massage techniques I already have learned.

Michelle Tranchina, LMT

Great Course :0) Love Earth, Fire, Spirit collection.

Hannah Neace, LMT

Excellent course!!!!

Traci Jennings, LMT

Awesome course! A great refresher for me - thank you!

Barbara Hudak, LMT, NCTMB

Definitely enjoyed this course... although I admit that staying awake during the videos was a very difficult challenge! That said, she was very easy to follow what she was doing, and her descriptions were clear and she was very pleasant to listen to. I really liked that she used a number of techniques that I already incorporate into my massage work. I will definitely use this lovely routine in my practice!

V. Morrigan Anderson

This was a good refresher course for me overall. I did learn a few new things about Myofacial and Lymphatic work that I will incorporate in my routine. The reading material was clear and to the point. It was actually relaxing to read through and do the questions.

Michelle Carley, LMT

This Spirit course was by far my favorite, which is saying something because I have enjoyed all of the classes that I have taken with the Institute.

Leannia Jerrell, LMT

Totally enjoyed the materials and video. Found the mix of techniques interesting and insightful. Did find draping technique on leg to be less conservative than I am accustomed to. Diaper draping was the standard at school and work. I have done draping as shown in video but typically only with very long time clients.

William Kulbicki, LMT

I have been a Massage Therapist for 15 years and found this course to be interesting and informative. I am excited to begin using these techniques in my practice. Thank you for providing high quality continuing education courses!

Tina Griffith, CMT

I am so happy I found this course. It was by an actual sit in class getting canceled that I needed to search for another means of completing my CEUs. I was also able to receive my Reiki Master attunement as well because my schedule freed up due to the other course getting canceled. The Integrative Massage: Spirit course is so in synch with what I just accomplished in Reiki that I am overjoyed beyond words. Please continue to offer this course because more people need to learn this amazing way of healing.

Philip J Couture, LMT

Excellent course Purchased the DVD - did the massage routine & then reviewed material a second time - effective way to solidify the information Nice to have the DVD and workbook as reference materials.

Karen Elmendorf, LMT

Great review for what I had learned in school. I will definitely apply these techniques and practice with a friend so I can offer it as a specific modality for my clients.

Serra Wobbema, LMT, NCTMB

Your support staff was very friendly and helpful. I will order more courses again in the near future and I will also tell fellow massage therapists about your CEU courses. Thank you!

Ann Underwood, LMT, NCTMB

I really liked this course. It was a great refresher and a great way to use multiple massage modalities. I learned some new things and I got a better understanding of some other things I learned before.

Roxanne Richard, LMT

I really enjoyed this course and learned a lot about bringing my intention into my healing approach.

Melissa Jacobs, LMT

The course was especially useful to me as it pertained to myofascial work. The leg and arm pulls are techniques that I have begun using in my massage. The lymphatic massage techniques were known to me but provided a good review. I also use some energy work but to a limited degree. It is important to stay focused and engaged when doing massage and the course also stressed this point.

Roger Dale Prokupek, LMT

I am really happy I bought the Spirit Massage course, because I gained new knowledge. It was easy and interesting.

Patricia Yerena, LMT, NCTMB

The entire course was very helpful to me. I especially learned new ways to combine modalities and techniques from the variety of ways in this Integrative Massage: Spirit session.

Jacqueline Da Via

This was my third integrative massage course - and the one I enjoyed the most. This course was the most different from the massage I learned in school- combining energy work with more physical modalities. This is the kind of work I enjoy doing. So I really liked to see how someone else combined the modalities together. I have enjoyed all the courses I have taken from the Institute. Thank you!

Colleen Mason, LMT

I ordered the Spirit Massage course because it was on sale, but was quickly blown away by how thorough the class was. The course information was detailed and technical while the massage routine was relaxing and peaceful. I have been a LMT for 9 years. This CEU class was well prepared, informative, enjoyable, and easy to understand. I will be highly recommending this class to colleagues as well as this institution as my phone call with customer service was exceptional. Thank you!!

Brandi Calvert, LMT, BCTMB

This course is absolutely beautiful and interesting. I can't wait to print out the manual and view the video again for reference. By the way, that we can come back to view again after finishing course is a huge plus! Thank you

Jenny Bruno, LMT, BCTMB, CMT

I can't wait to use this with all of my clients! As an OT and MT, all areas carryover to the mind, body, and spirit! I can't wait to do the Fire and Earth training videos as well. Thank you.

Anna Rinholen, LMT

This course increased my level of awareness of energy work and the video was very helpful..visual is always reinforcing.

Marles Blackbird, LMP

The Integrative Massage: Spirit information was well presented. Though much of the information was a review, I did learn how to use the information in a greater flow to approach my clients. I look forward to taking the Integrative Massage: Fire and the Integrative Massage: Earths courses as well to complete the series.
