KATHRYN DICKERSON

My journey into a helping, people-oriented career began when i received a B.A. in Psychology from Pacific Christian College in 1993. I began working in hospitals in this capacity with the intention of continuing my education with at least a master's degree, but preferably a doctorate in psychology.

However, about the time i was ready to go on to finish my master's degree was when i received my first massage. In many ways massage was all that i desired to do as a psychologist, but of course in a different manner. While massage of course cannot “solve” serious emotional disturbances, there is a strong mind-body connection, & massage can bring relief to some people for a time & help them to relax.

So, rather than continue in the psychology field, i enrolled in massage school in the summer of 1999. The first school i attended was the American Institute of Massage Therapy which at that time was in Costa Mesa, California. I attended for 766 hours taking Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology and Swedish and Sports Massage, as well as short workshops in Lomi Lomi, Craniosacral, Thai Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, and Seated Massage. I then went to Mueller College of Holistic Massage Therapies in San Diego for another 178 hours of training including Deep Tissue Integration. I then worked in various chiropractic clinics part-time for a couple of years while continuing to work in the psychiatric field in as a crisis counselor at a hospital.

In the fall of 2003 i returned to school however, at Mesa Institute in Fullerton. It is an excellent school. I felt that the way in which the majority of my teaching was done, while excellent in its way, was not as thorough as i needed. Mesa has filled those holes in training for me. I have taken 250 hours there in Myotherapy (trigger point therapy), Shiatsu, Pregnancy massage, Lymphatic Drainage I & II, and Preparing for the National Board II (Energy work). I have also done workshops in CranioSacral Therapy, Reflexology and Ear Candling/Coning.
