We are here to answer all your questions.
I graduated from IPSB in 1985 (over 30 years ago) and I am still working as a massage therapist. In addition to teaching me how to give a connected massage, the program at IPSB taught me how to work in a way that protects my body so I can still do what I love.
Our mission is to train sensitive, self-aware bodyworkers
who use creativity and self-knowledge to transform basic skills
into an artistic form that deeply touches the lives of others.
Programs & Workshops to Suit Your Needs

We welcome new program students who are changing careers as well as transfer students looking to complete their training. We also offer individual workshop classes for practitioners from a variety of backgrounds (including massage, craniosacral/polarity therapy, yoga, acupuncture, nursing etc.) seeking CEU’s or special training to up-level their skills. We are regularly adding new exciting class offerings with instructors who are leading their fields. Chat with one of our Student Services Specialists about finding the right program or class for your needs. It is our pleasure to support you on the path to fulfilling your dreams.
Choosing the Right School
Many of our students find their way to our school for the first time based on passionate recommendations from alumni students. Others attend an Open House and quickly grasp the special family-community environment and massage style that only IPSB offers. The IPSB Style of massage is known around the world as being an exceptional massage to receive, and notably, also to give, as it is founded in the graceful, flowing art-form of Tai Chi. The IPSB Style of massage sets our therapists apart in the industry, with many employers specifically seeking IPSB-trained practitioners owing to their sound body mechanics, highly-effective massage techniques, and clients who return - again and again. Come experience the magic of IPSB for yourself, at one of our Open House events.
