In 2007 Institute of Sanative Arts (ISA) was born to bring a unique style of massage to West Michigan and fill a void in training. With the firm belief that massage is truly an art, and every school excels in something, ours would be to learn to massage to the body needs. With a strong curriculum in anatomy, business and philosophy we teach you to let the body tell you what and how you will massage each client.
Loree, the owner of ISA along with two other experienced, active therapist/educators work together with the goal to pass their many years of experience and diversity of styles down to those they teaches and mentors and to help you become a skilled long term therapist.  ISA is a member of the ABMP & AMTA.

Your skill should qualify you for work in a clinical setting, spa setting, or your own business setting. You will learn Modalities Essential Oil Massage, Hot Stone, Manual Lymph Drainage (vodder stlye) and Salt Body Polish as part of your normal curriculum.  This is has a continuing education value of over $1000 and sets you up nicely to work anywhere you want.
