Atterbury recently hosted a Wellness Day the Isa Carstens® Wellness Sanctuary, where students treated their clients to back & scalp massages.

Massage is no longer seen as a luxury that’s only available at spas & upscale salons. Today, massage therapy – performed by a Somatologist – is often used to deliver a specific result. That’s why Isa students study anatomy & physiology, which teaches them to use massage therapy to stimulate circulation, flush the circulatory system, release tight muscles, restore range of motion & relieve pain.
