The Life-Long Intention To Help Others
Every instructor, every student, and every graduate of the Arcata School of Massage shares a deep sense of responsibility for the state of the earth, our societies, our communities, and our families.
Throughout our lives, we have searched for opportunities to embody the natural compassion that we’ve carried with us since childhood, and in massage therapy we have found our life’s work. We get to earn a living being curious, caring, creative, magical, philosophical and scientific, all while directly benefitting everyone we touch.
In the art and service of massage therapy, we see that not only do our clients’ lives improve, but also their relationships and their overall contributions to their communities. Peace literally springs from our hands, and spreads from person to person, like laughter.
The revolutionary spirit that wants to change the world is given a venue of socially positive activism that is accessible to people from all walks of life. Rather than criticizing the flaws of our societies, we use our precious human life to directly benefit everyone equally, without judgement or ideology. We put compassion to work.
