About The Green Mountain Institute
International Bodywork and Massage Therapy Training Schools in Vermont and Abroad
The Green Mountain Institute is a Vermont massage school that offers high quality individual massage and bodywork sessions and provides expert training in massage.
We believe the most important attribute a massage practitioner has is her/his ability to make contact. To be truly present. To have a free flow of energy. To have hands that are intelligent and fully alive.
A truly present touch is in itself deeply healing. When truly present touch is combined with an educated awareness and superb technique, body work begins to have the potential to change lives.
The Directors of the Institute are Judith and Michael Jamieson, a husband and wife team with twenty years experience in bodywork and counseling. In 1993, after repeated requests to train others, they founded the Green Mountain Institute, offering a range of trainings and courses as well as individual sessions.
Courses are taught in Vermont (USA), Portugal and at times in other locations in the US and abroad. They attract a wide range of students of all ages, from varying backgrounds and from different countries. Offerings include:
- Massage Therapy School in Vermont
- Massage Therapy School in Portugal
- 4-day workshops that are available for continuing education credit
At the Green Mountain Institute all our courses and workshops focus on developing the student's ability to be truly present. Through a daily warmup, attention to the student's own body mechanics and numerous experiential exercises we encourage the student to release and grow into a more vital and alive individual. In order to achieve this we promise to keep our class sizes small and our instruction highly personalized.
