IPSB-trained Massage Therapists in San Diego

IPSB-trained Massage Therapists in San Diego

by Kathleen Lisson, CMT, CLT

I learned massage and also had the pleasure of teaching meditation at IPSB college in San Diego, which was one of the oldest massage colleges in the United States. If you have ever had an IPSB massage, you knew it. The touch was deeper and more connected to both your body and your soul.

Unfortunately, IPSB closed in 2016, but there are a few practicing massage therapists who still use the old ways to massage their clients. Here are a list of IPSB-trained massage therapists practicing in San Diego. IPSB grads, please consider referring to your fellow classmates to ensure they get the 'Enter, Center and Connect' IPSB experience from their massage!
