The Bodymechanics School Educational Model

When I meet with potential students, I love to talk about our educational model at Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & Massage.  Of course, I can only speak to our model since I went to school here, I taught here once I graduated, and ultimately I bought the school.

Our educational model is as follows:

  1. Advanced theory and techniques that sets our graduates up for success
  2. Advanced communication skills that encourage graduates to be comfortable talking about their profession as well as their style of work
  3. Advanced marketing skills – designed to facilitate graduates independence with opening their own clinic utilizing the advanced theory and techniques.
  4. Advanced critical thinking skills, which help move the massage session beyond a standard massage to one that is meant to not just make the recipient feel better, but to help that person get relief from acute and chronic conditions.

Advanced technique, communication, marketing and critical thinking skills are the cornerstone to our education.

Shari Aldrich’s Story

Shari Aldrich meets Sir Richard Branson
Shari with Sir Richard Branson

Hey – Shari Aldrich here.  I’m the President and Clinical Director for Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy & Massage.  I’ve been a massage therapist since 2006.  Before my career in massage, I was an IT Director for a local company.  Life certainly has its ups and downs and as they say, when one door closes, another opens.  I believe this with all my heart.

I actually loved my IT job.  I loved the challenge.  I loved the changing technology.  I loved how I grew into a leader.  What I hated was the stress.  I was covering 10 offices in 2 states by myself.  There were over 150 computers in the field used  by staff who were not computer savvy.  I was pulled in a hundred directions – every day.

Personally, my family had suffered 3 significant losses in 7 years with the deaths of my brother, mother and sister.  I was afraid that something similar would happen to me if I wasn’t able to deal with my stress.  I started training for the Seattle Marathon in 2004 and got my first massage while in training.  I made a decision to start massage school and take control of my life.  So, in March of 2005 I enrolled in Bodymechanics School, going to night school and working all day long.  I’m not going to lie, it was very stressful.  My daughters were in high school and played sports year round.  I missed a lot of their games.  Even when I was home, I was studying or giving massages. It was crazy, to say the least.
