In life, people are passionate about countless different topics. Whether it’s art, science or a combination of the two, people tend to have an affinity towards something that brings them joy. A passion for both art and science is exactly what Robin Lau, a massage therapy student at WellSpring School of Allied Health, has experienced. By gaining an understanding about the human body, massage therapists can develop creative treatments and be confident that they work.
According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, massage therapy is scientifically proven to help people suffering from a range of complications anywhere from cancer to mental health. Treatments help ease pain, reduce stress and fight problems like depression. Massage Magazine talks about how just like great pieces of art, massage can have a deep impact on a patient’s emotional well-being. There’s little doubt that the art of massage and gift of touch inspires and empowers people to be more creative in their daily lives.
WellSpring’s focus on holistic and integrative learning is what sets it apart from other schools around the nation. Lau said, “I’m a registered nurse and I love anatomy and physiology. I love the fact that massage brings together an art and creativity with such a human body, anatomical science basis.”
