Alliance for Massage Therapy Education Spotlights Our Co-Founder Cari Johnson Pelava

02 Jan 2018

Recently at the 2017 Alliance for Massage Therapy Education (AFMTE) Educational Congress in Tucson, some of the leading massage school personnel were interviewed for short spotlights. We’re excited to report that our own Cari Johnson Pelava, co-founder of our Minneapolis massage and shiatsu school, was one of those picked.

CenterPoint is proud to be a member of the AFMTE, a very vital organization for those who are educators in massage therapy.  Founded in 2009, the AFMTE has become a sort of ‘university’ for massage school instructors. While Cari’s background is shiatsu, as a founder of our bodywork school that offers training in both techniques, she has a unique perspective to offer other massage therapy educators.

CenterPoint was the first shiatsu therapy school in Minnesota, and it currently remains as the only one. Shiatsu is growing in popularity in the U.S., but there are still very few schools that offer accredited training. In this interview, Cari talks both about the history of our school as well as the importance of integrated bodywork instruction and why she gets involved in educational committees like this.

If you’d like to learn more about our shiatsu training or our other programs – including our East West Therapeutic A.A.S. degree program that combines both – contact us today to arrange a campus visit.
