California Massage Therapy School

Message From Our Founder~

"It's hard to believe it's been 35 years since a few friends asked me to teach a massage class and Diamond Light was born. I never imagined that we would still be here 35 years later, having touched thousands of people who have in turn touched thousands more. Somehow our little heart centered, spiritually focused massage school managed to survive the ever changing and increasing rules and regulations of the massage therapy industry with its meditative soul intact. 

2022 will be the last year of Diamond Light Massage School in its present form, at least for now. 

The world of massage therapy certification has changed so much and it no longer feels aligned with my highest calling to jump through all the hoops required or to try to disguise the spiritual teachings that have always been at the core of Diamond Light to fit into the increasingly confining legislative boxes of massage therapy certification.

It has been a blessing and honor to be the guiding heart of Diamond Light these past 35 years and to watch our school grow and transform through so many changes. Thanks so much to those of you who enthusiastically joined me on adventures that often strayed far from the conventional image of a massage therapy education. All that I have strived for with Diamond Light lives on with you and all the people you touch.

I love and thank you all with all my heart for supporting me and our school on this amazing journey we’ve shared

Perhaps we will ressurect again in another form. I will keep you posted.

In the meantime I intend to continue to teach, lead meditation retreats, see private clients and expand my work in end of life care. Please let me know if you would like to stay informed of what I offer in the future."
