Cultural Bodywork © Courses

The Principle of our Cultural Bodywork © Courses is to combine the healing arts of the South Pacific Cultures. These Cultures have taken thousands of years to develop their own individual and unique way of healing the body, mind and soul. The combination of these forms of healing is very powerful. No where else can you achieve such a complete teaching program and action of healing.

This art of healing is performed with the greatest reverence and respect for the body. Spiritually, it encourages harmony between body, mind and soul, thus giving a feeling of Alignment and focus. In learning this sacred art your own cleansing occurs so that you feel present within in your body and are able to move forward easily.
