FAQ

Dear friends and colleagues,

Before you stands a door leading to incredible professional reaches. More than 100 years of massage science await you there. SOMI has collected, analyzed and examined every scientific concept, technique and modality originating from the Western School of Somatic Rehabilitation.

This training is relevant to every branch of the massage profession including Therapeutic, Sports and Medical Massage. SOMI is the only program in America that has been scientifically tested by independent sources (Saybrook University) and is currently being successfully used by several major hospitals as part of their Integrative Medicine programs.

SOMI promises to teach, support and nurture you until you become an independently thinking massage clinician who can deliver predictable clinical results in a relatively short period of time. Give yourself and your patients the chance they deserve! Open the door and please come in!
